Prince Edward Island travel guide

Historic Sites · Beaches · Theme Parks
Garden of the Gulf
Canada's only island province, Prince Edward Island earned the nickname the "Garden of the Gulf" thanks to its pastoral landscape of rolling green hills and a patchwork of cultivated fields. The country's smallest province in terms of land and population, the island boasts a long coastline marked by sandy beaches, making up in visual appeal what they lack in modern infrastructure. It's easy to get away from everyone during a vacation in Prince Edward Island, as this photogenic landmass features just a scattering of small towns housing warmhearted locals stubbornly clinging to their easygoing lifestyle. Begin your Prince Edward Island tour in Charlottetown, the quaint provincial capital with a good selection of bars and restaurants.

Newfoundland travel guide

4.6
Lighthouses · Historic Walking Areas · Dolphin & Whale Watching
One of the world's biggest islands, Newfoundland sits just off North America's eastern coastline, blocking the mouth of the St. Lawrence River and forming the largest estuary on the planet. A trip to Newfoundland reveals a place distinct from the rest of Canada, where even local time ticks away at its own pace--the island's time zone is 30 minutes ahead of the mainland's. Water remains the lifeblood of this land at the edge of the continent, so most holidays in Newfoundland include some form of sea-related activities. You can fish, sail, whale watch, explore lighthouses, and observe majestic icebergs as they drift by the island's rugged coastline.
