Tucked away at the southern end of the Gulf Island chain, Saturna Island is the most rustic and sparsely populated of the Southern Gulf Islands.
The Island has been home to First Nations peoples for thousands of years. Today it is within the traditional territory of the W̱SÁNEĆ Peoples, including the Tsawout and Tseycum First Nations.
Saturna has bountiful wildlife and tremendous natural beauty. The Island features a variety of outdoor activities, including hiking, cycling, kayaking, swimming and fishing. Visitors to Saturna should plan ahead, as there are no campsites on the island and limited accommodations. Note: Nearly half of the newly created Gulf Islands National Park incorporates undeveloped wilderness land on Saturna Island.
