Galiano Island

So, here is the island; the least inhabited of the Southern Gulf Islands, lots of lush greenery and winding roads, kind of why we love it so much. The amenities on the Island are also very limited, so we'd recommend bringing everything you think you will need with you. However, see below for a list of where to go if you've forgotten something or need activity ideas.


Grand Central Public House

Community is the centre of this diner-esque "pub". Serving a hearty comfort brunch, we tried the ham & cheese omelette, which was fresh and tasty. The "famous" all day breakfast is served 8am-2:30pm, not quite all day?The patio outside is nice on a sunny day. Closed on Wednesday's.


Daystar Market

Super nice store with all the bits and bobs you might need/forget. This is pretty much the only store of this kind on the island, so worth bearing in mind before you make the 25min drive north to the venue; nothing in between but trees and squirrels. 


The Crane & Robin

Pretty awesome taco spot and in an amazing setting by the water. Called here on a Sunday afternoon before getting the ferry back to the mainland and it defo didn't disappoint. 


Moped Rental

If you fancy exploring the island on 2 wheels.





James is hoping for a hike on the morning of the wedding! Although we have yet to discover them for ourselves, we know plenty of great trails and views await!


Kayak & Boat Rental

If you fancy exploring the island from the coastline.
