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.
Look at a map of Prince Edward Island and you’ll see a croissant cut into three equal parts. Central PEI is where the Confederation Bridge comes ashore, binding the island to the mainland. This is the most visited part of the province, holding both the capital city Charlottetown and the major tourist areas along the seashore around Prince Edward Island National Park. Eastern PEI boasts secluded beaches and fishing villages; its wealth of stunning routes has earned it an international reputation as a cycling destination. Western PEI offers the opportunity to explore the cultures and history of the French Acadians and Mi’kmaq Aboriginal peoples.
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.
