Snug in the Georgia Strait, between the BC mainland and the east coast of Vancouver Island, are the Gulf Islands of British Columbia.

Each of the Gulf Islands seems to be a world unto itself; each has its own history, culture and colourful characters. Spectacular scenery, talented artisans and artists, great outdoor recreation, and a great mediterranean climate are among the many attractions of the popular Gulf Islands.

There are seven major islands in the southern half of the Strait of Georgia. Each island has its distinctive charm, and deserves at least a day or two for exploring.

A good way to do so is by bicycle, stopping at campgrounds or bed and breakfasts along the way. Roadways and trails take you on a tour of natural beauty, leading you to hilltops for fabulous views and down to the beach for an afternoon swim. Around each corner is an artisan's gallery or a cafe, a row of unique little shops or a quiet marina. As well, there's camping, hiking, fishing, boating, all in beautiful surroundings and a friendly, relaxing atmosphere - truly what holiday memories are made of.
