Fulford harbour is the point of entry for most people cause the ferry from Vancouver island docks there.
It's a pleasant little village with spread out houses and a couple of nice cafes.
You have a local pub too if you feel like having some of the exceellent micro brew from Saltspring.
Back in the old days Fulford harbour was very much populated by settlers who came there to fish and hunt and most of them were single males who often married native indians who also lives there, so you see a lot of people with native indian blood there.
And expect very little, unless you are VERY well off. Then you will be welcomed. This island ...is a cr*p hole of the world. A snotty rude backwater, only for rich tourists with the blinkers on. This is the type of private p@ss hole that should be eradicated. Cold unfriendly, anti-music and art ...and those are NOT hippies. they are just welfare people. PS ...no public transporation, internet, covered payphone or any other amenities for the poor. No welfare office here. And on and on. $!#!#@ the island and anywhere else like it.
Seriously, Mr. Ordinary Guy
