Cross the Confederation Bridge, opened in 1997 to link this unique island to the rest of Canada, and welcome to Prince Edward Island. The smallest province, it presents many unique features to discover – its beautiful beaches of fine sand, its rich history, its excellent seafood and the fishing villages of families that bring it to market all along its exceptionally long coast. The people are proud of their Island, and set their rhythm to that of the sea, much as they have for generations. Beautiful sandy beaches make PEI a favourite destination for Canadian holiday-makers, as well as visitors “from away”.
A favourite destination is one of the National Parks that preserves and protects the extraordinary dune environment, where sand and red clay create a unique landscape. Charlottetown is more than just the provincial capital, as it was the city that hosted the first meeting of representatives who negotiated the Canadian Confederation in 1867.
As for activities, the island is a famous playground for deep sea fishermen, kayakers and, of course, golfers!
Prince Edward Island is the smallest of the three Maritime Provinces, grouped closely along Canada’s Atlantic coast. The two others are New Brunswick and Nova Scotia.A picture is worth a thousand words
