. The Aeolian harp is a small stone pavilion in the classical style, constructed by the brothers Bernardacci in 1828. Diana's grotto was built in 1830, in honor of the first ascent of Mount Elbrus. Pyatigorsk is well known in the Caucasus region for its excellent restaurants and nightlife, as well as for its extremely large marketplace. A major thoroughfare is known to locals as "Broadway", which runs through the center of the city, and on which most of the best restaurants, nightclubs, and attractions are located. Broadway is also a popular spot for people watching.

Galiano Island

beautiful beaches, and they vary from the white shell Indian midden at Montague Beach to the warm sands of Morning Beach, to the hidden sandstone pleasures of Coon Bay and the long stretches of small stone beach at Pebble Beach and Cable Bay. Hiking trails are everywhere, and the vantage points atop Mount Galiano, Bodega Ridge and Bluffs Park present spectacular views across the other Gulf Islands, all the way to the mountains of Washington state. Bicycle and mountain biking trails are definitely strenuous, but well worth it. Just ensure that you stock up on water and supplies when leaving the village of Sturdies Bay, or at the Corner Store just 3 kilometers further but still on the South End, as there are no shops or services traveling north on the island. The best way to experience the island is by water: rent a kayak or take a sunset kayak tour, it is so easy in the sheltered waters of the Island and the islets that surround Galiano. Gulf Island Kayaks is experienced with new kayakers or experts, and gears their tours to every level. Or take an eco tour with a gracious Greek Canadian fisherman, Sporades Tours, and visit bird colonies and sea lion rocks and, hopefully, spot the Orca whales for which the island is famous: "j" pod lives in Active Pass, separating Galiano from Mayne Island. While they range great distances following the salmon, they are frequently seen in the Pass. For people wanting to explore the island on land, there is no substitute for doing it the old-fashioned way: by foot. The hiking trails and beaches are endless pleasures to explore, the views incredible and the wildlife all friendly. If you want to travel further afield (literally), rent wheels from Galiano Mopeds or a "Smart Car" from the Galiano Oceanfront Inn. From Bodega Ridge on the north end to Bluffs Park and Mount Galiano and Mathews Park Beach, there is much to explore. For a gentler experience, relax in the Flores del Iris Gardens at the Galiano Oceanfront Inn and Spa: waterfalls, fountains and quiet areas to relax. Or take in Bellhouse Park for a picnic, with the whales and boats passing almost within reach. And Galiano is not all about the outdoors...with the many wonderful artists and crafts people on the island ... a studio tour is a "must-see". Do Galiano Island has as many amenities as larger centres, but they are smaller, more one-of-a-kind. There is as much to do on the island (and its surrounding waters) than other vacation places in British Columbia, but without the crowds or signs of urbanization. Many world-class artists make their home on the Gulf Islands, and Galiano is no exception. Be sure to combine the outdoor activities with a visit to an artist's studio, a visit to the spa, and a glass of wine with some live music at a local watering hole. * '''Island-hopping''' - Galiano is the Gateway to the Gulf Islands, with easy first-stop ferry access from Vancouver, and many travel options via inter-island ferries to explore the other islands. * '''Spa''' - Take time out from all of the outdoor activities and enjoy a spa treatment in a full-service oceanfront Madrona del Mar Spa '''Art Tour''' - Take a tour around the island (pick up an Art Tour guide at the Tourism Information Booth or one of the local businesses) and visit some of the great galleries: Insight Gallery, Art and Soul and Gallery 33. Many are walking distance from the ferry, in the Village. Or take a drive to visit artists in their studio galleries throughout the island. Stoneworld, Marcia de Vicque Glassworks, Cedar Grove Pottery and Bill Boyd Studio are just some of the highlights. * Commons:Category:Galiano Island
