Prince Edward Island - Small in size but mighty in spirit

 

Prince Edward Island (PEI) is also known as the Million Acre Farm, Garden of the Gulf, and as a chefs’ paradise. PEI's world-class culinary reputation is due, in part, to the availability of an abundance of tasty homegrown ingredients. Farmers, fishers, and artisan food producers care for the lands and waters, so you can enjoy the highest quality seafood and produce. PEI pride themselves on eating fresh, local, and organic, and we invite you to share in it. Enjoy a lobster dinner on the wharf while watching the fisherman unload their traps, lunch on a sun porch overlooking patchwork fields of Island crops, breakfast on a terrace with a view of a sunny, green fairway - there are so many delicious ways, in so many great settings, to experience the pleasure of PEI cuisine. From the field, to the restaurant, to your plate - enjoy local, flavourful food like nowhere else on earth.

 

But savoring the succulent cuisine is just one way to enjoy the Island. There are so many more - build a sandcastle, jump through waves, take a romantic sunset walk, or just relax on the beach with your favorite summer book. Catch your own lobster straight out of the ocean, and then cook it up on shore. Harvest some oysters and then gobble them up fresh out of the water. There is an adventure waiting for every visitor.

 

Extensive trails for cyclists and hikers feature panoramic views of the countryside, glimpses of rural life, and tunnels of foliage. Bike or kayak from Inn to Inn and travel the Island off the beaten track. Bed-and-breakfasts, cottages, inns, hotels, and resorts - take your pick! There are more than 1000 different accommodations across the Island to choose from.

 

Prince Edward Island’s stunning natural scenery entices international visitors to this Canadian province, known for tranquil roads carved out of red clay, lush farmlands, and coastlines featuring brilliantly blue seascapes dotted with lighthouses, edged with sand dunes. It was this little Island that inspired L. M. Montgomery’s famous Anne of Green Gables stories. It’s a magical place where people come back to visit again and again.
