The pizzas here are SO delicious, by far one of my fav pizza spots ever! Great for picking up and eating in the park nearby or at home.

Love eating here, their pesto pasta dish is a favorite of mine - I love the crunchy pine nuts. Make a reservation during busy times of the year to avoid having to wait!

Very popular, good idea to make a reso or get there early. If you have to wait, take a walk down by all the boats in the harbour.

Rendezvous Patisserie - found at 126-4 Upper Ganges Road, Ganges, Salt Spring Island. LOVE this place, they are not open many days of the week but so worth making a trip to when they are. Run by a lovely French couple, real French baking at it's finest. Also find them in the market, but get there early as they sell out very quickly!

The market is such a jewel, no other market like it. Full of such creative local artists, amazing local organic vegetables and loads of delicious things to eat! A must see if you are here on a Saturday during the market season. There's a park in the middle which children love. It is a busy day in town so get there EARLY and I mean early, if you don't want to circle for parking.

Sunset beach access can be found on Sunset Drive just before West Eagle Dr, it's a favorite beach of ours and where I spent a lot of time exploring while I was growing up. It has gained popularity and is much busier than it was when I was a child.

Another great beach, though a bit rocky with young children. Access is found at the end of Baker Rd, stairs to get down.

Very popular lake for swimming and fishing, less than 10 min from our house. The beach access gets very busy in summer, but there are many other spots that can be found around the lake to jump in.

Cusheon lake is warmer than St Mary's. It has a dock and a small beach, it can be a popular spot during the summer.
