Prince Edward Island

A pastoral green patchwork of rolling potato fields, tidy gabled farmhouses and seaside villages, bordered by miles of vivid red cliffs, sand dunes and fabulous beaches, Prince Edward Island is Canada’s beautiful back garden. Every turn brings a stunning view of bays, rivers and fields running down to the water’s edge. Just as you’re thinking ‘wouldn’t some beer and fish-and-chips be nice about now, there usually a quaint café close by, with an open door. The people are friendly, life is slowed to a civilized pace and the down-home hospitality and country charm are genuine.

Prince Edward Island offers three scenic coastal drives. The North Cape Coastal Drive is a medley of classic Island scenery, naturally sifted white and red sand beaches, towering lighthouses and essential coastal stops. The Central Coastal Drive is everything you need for a fabulous vacation. Highlights of this drive include the Prince Edward Island National Park with its stunning beaches, unforgettable sunsets, and of course the ever-popular Green Gables Heritage Place, the setting of the world-renowned novel Anne of Green Gables. The capital city, Charlottetown, featured tranquil treelined streets, boutiques, and cafes with plenty of outdoor dinning options. And the Points East Coastal Drive with 50 phenomenal beaches is rich in culture, history, golf and some of the Island’s best culinary destinations. Follow the colorful starfish signs to well-known sites and hidden gems.  

The peak tourism season is short, with most services shut between mid-September and mid-June. The margins of this season are a great time to visit when the weather is still warm and the crowds of July and August are missing.
