Walk cobblestone streets and red dirt roads. Spend the afternoon at a white sandy beach where the sand "sings" due to its high percentage of silicone, or at a red sandy beach where the best sea glass is found. Visit the theatre, shop one of many quaint shops, or play a game of golf on a championship course. Then there are the galleries and museums to visit, the historical sites to explore, and the restaurants to sample. You'll run out of time long before you run out of things to do.
Prince Edward Island has always had a sense of mystery surrounding it, as there often is with tiny islands in huge oceans. Sometimes it feels like the rest of the world has forgotten about this little slice of Heaven in the Gulf of St. Lawrence but that's okay with most of the people who live here. They know they live somewhere special, where a long stroll or a country drive are things to be cherished. And then there's the scenery.
Come see for yourself why Conde Nast Traveler Magazine put PEI at #5 on its list of "Top 10 Islands to Visit in North America."
PEI has two cruise ports of call.
Enjoy all the conveniences of a big city with the warmth and charm of a small town. Play at a world-class golf course. Dine on fresh local foods and feast your eyes on one of the prettiest places you'll ever visit.
Situated on a peninsula at the most narrow part of Prince Edward Island, with a gorgeous, accessible waterfront, multiple downtown shops and restaurants, and nearby excursions, Summerside won’t leave you bored.
As you pull into the historic Port of Georgetown, close your eyes. You might just be able to hear the whistle of an old steamship that once visited this port in the late 19th century. A natural deep water harbour, Georgetown has a history steeped in ship building, fishing, and other sea trades.
