Birthplace of Confederation

The largest city on Prince Edward Island, Charlottetown remains small enough for easy exploration on foot.

Venture out of the city with trips to Point Prim Lighthouse (in Belfast), Wood Islands Lighthouse (in Wood Islands) and Green Gable Alpacas (in Tyne Valley). Spend the 16th (Tue) exploring nature at Prince Edward Island National Park. The adventure continues: take in the architecture and atmosphere at St. Peter's Anglican Cathedral, enjoy the sand and surf at Cavendish Beach, admire the landmark architecture of Province House National Historic Site, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Brackley Beach.

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.
