Galiano Island Vacation Rentals

British Columbia’s Gulf Islands are a paradise for vacationers. Galiano Island vacation rentals are a perfect escape in one of the most scenic corners of North America. Framed by mountains, forests and the great Pacific Ocean, Galiano Island feels far-removed from the hustle and stress of daily life, though it's just an hour-long ferry ride from Vancouver. As a highlight, this picturesque Gulf Island features hundreds of kilometers of hiking trails running along the water, up Mount Galiano and through the dense island forests.

Village Life in Galiano Island Vacation Rentals

There are fewer than 1,500 people who call Galiano Island home, and they are dedicated to keeping their island peaceful. However, visitors shouldn’t worry about being too far from civilization. Galiano Island cottage rentals are located close by quaint shops, lovely art galleries and cozy restaurants, and there is a relaxing spa as well in the village of Sturdies Bay.

Sturdies Bay is on the south end of the island, where the ferry terminal is located. Visitors can enjoy everything from excellent French cuisine at La Bérengerie near the Montague Harbour Marina, to a fantastic pub dinner at the famous Hummingbird Pub and diner classics at the Grand Central Grill. Don’t forget to stop in at the Sturdies Bay Bakery Café for a fresh croissant, or at the Scoops Burger Bar next door for an ice cream.

Galiano Island Golfing

Galiano Island cottage rentals are a great choice for golfers. With one of the most favourable climates in Canada, the golf is so memorable here that these islands are often referred to as the “Golf Islands”. The season for Galiano Island golfing stretches nearly year-round, with just a few rainy weeks in the winter to keep everyone but the die-hards in the club house. The Galiano Golf and Country Club welcomes golfers of all levels to play on one of the prettiest courses on the West Coast.

Galiano Island Hiking Trails Ramble through the Beauty

One of the most popular reasons to consider a Galiano Island vacation is the opportunity to hike along some of Canada’s loveliest hiking paths. There is a network of trails that crisscross the entire island, ranging from easy strolling to a challenging walk up to the top of the island’s mountain. From each of these trails, the views are simply spectacular.

Heading out on the Galiano Island hiking trails in Bellhouse Provincial Park, you may even spy pods of killer whales swim by in the Strait of Georgia. Hikers longing for a dip should head over to the Pebble Beach Reserve, where the water is a bit warmer and the view of the ocean goes on forever.

British Columbia’s Gulf Islands are a world away from the hurry of daily life, right in Vancouver’s backyard. The 200-plus islands offer lots of opportunity to explore. Plan to stay at a Galiano Island vacation rental, and then take a ferry or a private boat over to neighbouring Salt Spring Island or Gabriola Island, to explore all the natural wonder and artistic variety available in this lovely and unique West Coast setting.
