The Top Attractions of Prince Edward Island

This lovely island is Canada’s smallest province. Welcome to and today we’ll be taking a look at some of the attractions you need to see while visiting Prince Edward Island.


Located in the south, PEI’s capital Charlottetown is the province’s largest city. Baptized the Birthplace of Confederation, it is home to the Province House, where many meetings of the 1864 Charlottetown Conference were held.

Confederation Bridge

Also in the south, you’ll find the village of Borden-Carleton, which gives you access to the Confederation Bridge. Built over the Northumberland Strait, this bridge connects PEI to New Brunswick via the Trans-Canada Highway.

Wood Islands Ferry

If you’d like to try a more scenic crossing of the Strait, or are headed to Nova Scotia, you can choose the Wood Islands Ferry.


The stunning Prince Edward Island National Park is a must-see. It is home to Dalvay-by-the-Sea, which features a late nineteenth century summer house built in the Queen Anne Revival Style. This residence now serves as a resort hotel and is found on a national historic site.


Though Basin Head and Brackley Beach may be more famous, the PEI National Park is also blessed with the white sand beaches of Greenwich. This area is notable for its flora and fauna and its impressive sand dunes, which you can view from the boardwalks.

Malpeque Bay and Darnley

PEI depends on fishing as one of its main industries, and therefore it is known for its seafood. While visiting the community of Malpeque Bay, be sure to savor fresh oysters, lobster and mussels, and stay in any of its excellent accommodations. Near the bay, you can also take in beautiful views of the dunes and water from the cottages and vacation homes of the Darnley community.

North Lake

To experience the thrills of giant bluefin tuna fishing, head to the world’s Tuna Capital at North Lake. If you’re more of an observer, then book a scenic tour for whale, seal or bird watching instead.

French River

If you’d like to catch men and women at work, then there’s the fishing-based village of French River and its many traditional houses.


The town of Montague sits astride a river of the same name and is home to a marina. Because of this, both fishing and farming are important to the area. You’ll also find a wide variety of fresh organic produce at the Fortune Organics farm in Rollo Bay.
