A Jewel You Do Not Want To Miss Out On

This way you get the full experience. This is the only way for you to really enjoy and appreciate these jewels. Besides, how can you tell people you went to see the Gulf Islands if you did not see all of them?

Salt Spring Island is the most popular island to visit because it has the most people living on it. It offers the most accommodations and amenities. Saturna, on the other hand, is the least populated island of the cluster and has the leader to offer you. However, this does not make it any less beautiful visit. This information is just to help you prioritize if you do not plan on visiting all of them.
