Tourism and Recreation:

Uncertain Future


Tourism and Recreation have been the backbone of Salt Spring Island's identity and economy. Relax, enjoy rural views, boating, nature, and the island feeling.

Chocolate Beach, Price Beach, Beddis Beach, and the north end of Ruckle Park (a point for regular Orca observations) are fully exposed to freighters. This is just the beginning. More permanent anchorages are planned around Salt Spring Island.

With industrial sights, noise and light pollution, and the chance of water pollution, many may feel that we are not really a get-away destination anymore.

Beddis Beach: 

Now with industrial sights and sounds.

Swimming or beach combing - still encouraged?

Is this our vision for Salt Spring Island?
