Things To Do
The Island is full of activities to check off your bucket list!
You can not go anywhere on the Island without coming across an Instagram-worthy landscape. With its majestic beaches and vast rolling countrysides, Prince Edward Island is the perfect example of natural beauty. The Island's scenery consists of a wide variety of colours; the bright blues of the ocean with white tipped waves, the greens and pastels of wild flowers, and the signature deep red of the soil and cliffs. You can not forget the lighthouses which are an iconic symbol of the East Coast. P.E.I. placed second in a survey that questioned which Canadian province people would like to travel to the most. Lucy Maud Montgomery's description of the Island in her book, Anne of Green Gables, most likely left readers asking if such a spectacular place could actually exist. Prince Edward Island's clear blue sky and perfect scenery will leave you breathless.
