PEI and beaches. They’re practically synonyms.

Birdwatching and nature walks? Of course. But we also have bumper boats, waterslides, and go-karts. When was the last time you went horseback riding? Have you ever taken a ride on a mini-train?

How far back do you want to go? Although the Acadians settled here in the early 1700s, the British, French, Irish and Scottish were all playing major roles two centuries earlier. But even they might be considered newcomers: by the time the Europeans arrived, the Mi’kmaq had already been here for thousands of years. Want to become absorbed in these and other stories? Begin in our provincial and community museums. At the Acadian Museum, experience 300 years of struggle and survival. At the Green Park Shipbuilding Museum and Yeo House, relive the glory days of that once-booming industry. At the newly-renovated Canadian Potato Museum, take a farm tour and walk the same fields our forefathers did. From one corner of PEI to the other, you’ll find hidden gems, such as the Garden of the Gulf Museum, Lucy Maud Montgomery’s Birthplace, and Beaconsfield Historic House. Whether you’re interested in planes, trains, or automobiles, one-room schoolhouses or elegant mansions, Mi’kmaq culture or the silver fox industry, we have a museum that brings our history to life.

Facing page: Green Gables Heritage Place / Birthplace / Kensington Station / JOHN SYLVESTER; Bideford Museum / PAUL BAGLOLE Photos: Cast of Anne / LOUISE VESSEY; Green Gables Heritage Place / JOHN SYLVESTER When the novel Anne of Green Gables was first published in 1908, most people could only dream of visiting its magical setting. As the book became popular around the world, it’s likely that many readers had no idea where Prince Edward Island was. They may have even wondered, “Is it a real place?” Today, millions of the book’s fans have made the trip to PEI and discovered the land that captivated Anne in Lucy Maud Montgomery’s stories. And for those who just can’t get enough of their favourite redheaded girl, or the woman who created her, there are Anne-related attractions all over the Island. First, of course, is Anne of Green Gables–The Musical™, Canada’s longest running musical. In Cavendish, you’ll find Green Gables Heritage Place, Avonlea–Village of Anne of Green Gables, and Montgomery’s Homestead, where the writer’s descendants still live. Lower Bedeque is home to the schoolhouse where the author taught, and in July there’s the L.M. Montgomery Festival. If you love Anne, you too will feel right at home on her Island.

Maybe that’s because there’s so much to do out there. But before you can settle on a specific activity, you have to answer the more general question: land or sea? This is a cyclist’s paradise, with trails and pathways that have terrain changing at every turn. Our rolling hills and gorgeous scenery are perfect for any fitness level or interest, and will get your heart racing, one way or another. Bikers, walkers, and runners alike love the Confederation Trail’s 414 kilometres (257 miles) of rolled stone-dust surface. Many also pack a GPS, because it’s the largest geocache power trail in the world, with more than 1,800 caches, and climbing (the Island has more than five thousand). For hikers, there’s plenty of wilderness to explore, both inland and along the rocky shore. Of course, you’ll find golf, horseback riding, paintballing, and guided tours. And be sure to get a close-up look at the other-worldly beauty of shifting sand dunes–boardwalks will take you right over them– or hunt for polished glass and other treasures on our stunning beaches.

We have deep-sea and freshwater fishing, with guided and charter services available. Short cruises will take you out for an afternoon of sun and salt air, where you may spot seals napping on the rocks, and eagles soaring overhead. If it’s a traditional trip to the beach you’re after, ours are pristine and uncrowded, with sand that’s smooth and clean, and water that’s warmer than any north of the Carolinas –great for swimming, snorkeling, or just floating the time away. If you’d like to ride both the waves and the wind, try parasailing or kiteboarding. But no matter how you spend your day, the perfect ending is a night in one of our many campgrounds, where fresh air and the sounds of the sea will lull you to a well-earned sleep. Be sure to get plenty of rest though: the great outdoors will be calling for you again tomorrow.

Whether you’re approaching from sea or land, a lighthouse is a welcome sight. It helps guide boats to safety, calling out through darkness, fog, and storm.

There is nothing else in the world quite like them, and if you’re one of those people who’s inexplicably drawn to lighthouses, you’ve come to the right place. Prince Edward Island has more than 50 of these structures dotting its ragged coastline. More than 38 still function as navigational aids, and nine are open to the public.

Shaw’s Hotel & Restaurant has won the 2014 PEI Adapt Council’s “Taste our Island” Award. Striving to produce fabulous food in concert with the region’s agricultural season, the partnership of fourth-generation hotelier Robbie Shaw and chef extraordinaire Peter Angus has taken the concept to a whole new level. The original hotel was established in 1860 by Robbie’s great-grandfather, John Shaw. Back then the inn, which was located on farm property, provided most of its food on site. Other ingredients were obtained by trading with nearby farmers and fishermen. Shaw’s original commitment to buying from local suppliers has endured for more than a century and a half, and continues stronger than ever. “Our farmers helped us survive two world wars and the great depression,” said Robbie. “We have always had a reputation for serving quality food derived from Island sources. Chef Peter has taken this idea and ran with it. Our menu is as local as possible, and is a testament to how good our products are on PEI.” Chef Peter has long been involved in the sustainable food movement, but his arrival on Prince Edward Island has bolstered the local component to his cooking philosophy. “I have gotten to know the great organic farming movement here,” he said, “and our customers are really demanding those products.” He adjusts Shaw’s menu accordingly, matching the restaurant’s delicious offerings with the seasonal availability of ingredients. Shaw’s Hotel & Restaurant is open from early June to late September, and is located at 99 Apple Tree Road, overlooking the bay in Brackley Beach. Shaw’s Hotel & Restaurant The accommodations and food at Shaw’s will make any visit to PEI even more memorable.

It’s a question that gets asked frequently: “When is the best time to visit PEI?” Most people arrive in the summer, and for many that means golf, beaches, and water sports. Indeed, from early June to late September, it’s non-stop activity: traditional music, dance, arts and crafts, theatre, Canada Day festivities, and much more. The Fall Flavours Festival eases the passing of summer with a series of culinary offerings– demonstrations, cooking boot camps, tasting events, and hands-on activities –all featuring fresh PEI ingredients and set against autumn’s gorgeous backdrop of colour. There’s also apple-picking and harvest festivals. Winter is cold, crisp, and perfect for downhill skiing, as well as tubing, ice skating, and snowshoeing. And the Island is as beautiful covered in snow as it is cloaked in summer green. The Jack Frost Festival and a few nights at a cozy country inn make a perfect winter getaway. In the spring the earth awakens with crocuses, tulips, daffodils, lupins, and the Lady’s Slipper, and trees once again fill the landscape with vibrant colour. As spring slides back into summer, our days and nights heat up with more fun, excitement, and memories. When is the best time to visit Prince Edward Island? Take your pick!

Alcohol and drugs impair your abilities and judgment. • weaker swimmers and young children should wear a properly-sized life jacket or personal flotation device (PFD) at all times. • pay close attention to surf conditions. Waves and currents can make water more dangerous than usual. Swimming in the ocean is very different from swimming in a pool or lake. The strength and force of even small ocean waves can surprise beach-goers who are unfamiliar with the power of the sea. When particular surf conditions are present at some of our beaches, rip currents can occur. Rip currents are powerful and can pull people away from shore. Even the strongest swimmers can get into trouble if caught in a rip current. Do not panic if this happens to you; relax and swim parallel to the shore to get out of the current; then swim back to shore. Do not attempt to swim back to shore against the current; it is too strong. Ask your lifeguard for more information when you arrive at the beach. Surf conditions are available by calling toll free 1-800-463-4PEI. PEI National Park beaches provide lifeguard service. Supervised Provincial Park beaches include: Jacques Cartier, Cedar Dunes, Chelton Beach, Northumberland, Cabot Beach, Basin Head, Red Point, and Panmure Island. OUR FRAGILE DUNES Whenever possible, stay on designated paths and stairways to the beach to help protect the fragile dune systems. Our white-sand beaches are known for their spectacular natural sand dunes. But they are as fragile as they are beautiful. Over the years, we have come to understand the need to respect these natural habitats for rare plants and wildlife by not disturbing the dunes. In an effort to keep this stunning natural resource intact, clearly marked access points to the beach have been designated. Please don’t play on the dunes; there are plenty of places to play on the beach. The eco-system will thank you. EMERGENCY CALLS For emergency service, dial 911 anywhere in Prince Edward Island 24/7. The Island’s province-wide 911 Emergency Response System is capable of linking visitors with translators in 140 different languages.

HISTORY AT A GLANCE Today most Islanders are descendants of Europeans; however, PEI’s first residents were the Mi’kmaq. The Mi’kmaq first lived here about 2000 years ago. They called the Island ‘Epekwitk’, meaning “resting on the waves”. European settlers pronounced the name as ‘Abegweit’. Victoria French explorers were the first Europeans to visit and settle the Island. Jacques Cartier described the Island as “...the fairest land ‘tis possible to see!” The French called the Island ‘Île Saint-Jean.’ To the British, who later occupied the area, the Island was known as ‘St. John’s Island.’ The Island was renamed in 1799 as ‘Prince Edward Island’ in honour of Prince Edward, Duke of Kent, the father of Queen Victoria. In 1758, under British control, the Island was annexed to Nova Scotia, and Captain Samuel Holland was later commissioned to survey the land. He divided the Island into 67 townships of 20,000 acres each. In a great lottery held in London, England, English merchants and military figures were granted large parcels of property in the colony. The colony was separated from Nova Scotia in 1769, but J OH N SYLVES TER A FEW RULES OF THE ROAD EMI LY O ’BR I EN SCENIC HERITAGE ROADS Many of the Island’s unique, traditional red-clay roads are protected by the Scenic Heritage Road program. A drive down Jack’s Road, John Joe Road or the Klondyke Road will be like a drive directly into the past. A required buffer zone means that many have a canopy of trees. All are unpaved (so don’t attempt a drive too early in spring). These roads are marked with a brown two-tree symbol ( ) on our highway map. Find out more on www.tourismpei. com/heritage-roads.

The Island prospered in the wood, wind and water economy of the mid 1800s and communities and colonial institutions expanded. The Charlottetown Conference, one of the most significant political events in Canadian history, was held in 1864 to discuss the idea of Canadian union. The conference led to Canada officially becoming a nation in 1867. Prince Edward Island became a province of Canada in 1873 after negotiations that promised a continuous link to the mainland.

All three of these industries are interdependent, and all are contingent on a healthy environment where crops flourish, shellfish thrive, and visitors reap the scenic benefits. The residents of PEI are aware that all this hangs in a delicate balance, and the provincial government and the Island community are taking measures to protect what they believe to be a special and magical place. PUBLIC NATURAL AREAS AND WETLANDS Great Blue Heron The Prince Edward Island Government is taking the lead in implementing a Sustainable Resource Policy. Some of the programs and legislation currently in place include: • legislation relating to crop rotation and riparian buffer zones. • the Wildlife Habitat Improvement Program that provides support to communities to enhance streams and forests. • support for the Island Nature Trust, which protects TOP NOTCH LOBSTER TOURS and manages natural areas. • land use and land ownership controls such as limitations to land ownership by residents, corporations and non-residents by the L.M. Montgomery Land Trust. See www.landtrust.ca. Information on these and other programs can be obtained from Island Information Services or tourism pei.com/pei-environment. Save a piece of endangered land as a green gift, green memorial or carbon offset. Our Island is rich in public lands which are open to the public for hiking, biking, tours, outdoor education, hunting and fishing, where permitted. 33,000 hectares are set aside and managed for a combination of economic, social and environmental goals. Within the Public Lands, approximately 60 natural areas have been set aside to conserve and protect sensitive ecological sites. These sites may contain rare or threatened plant species, critical habitats for birds or animals, or unique ecological features.

The Trail is surfaced with excellent rolled stone dust and is quite smooth and almost flat, making it easily negotiated on foot or by bicycle.

J OHN SYLV ES TER Lobster lore In PEI, lobster is fished in May and June and from mid-August to mid-October. A “canner” is a small but legal-size lobster used for canning. Lobster sold for fresh consumption is “market lobster.” A “cork” is a hired hand on a fishing vessel, especially a lobster boat. At one time, lobster was considered poor man’s food. Lobsters are naturally red in colour caused by a carotenoid pigment similar to that found J O HN S YLV E S T E R c al E ss e n t ials L oc al E ss e n t ials L oc al E ss e n t ials L oc al E ss e n t ials L oc al E ss e n t ials L oc al E ss e n t ia 62 NICE TO KNOW!

A college dedicated to the Highland arts, a restored lighthouse now operating as an inn, and a museum celebrating our world-famous potato are among the many possible stops along the way. The 350-kilometre North Cape Coastal Drive is named for its midpoint, North Cape, where 16 giant windmills stand on the Island’s westernmost tip. Visit www.tourismpei.com/ north-cape-drive. Acadian Festival E MILY O ’BRIE N Point Prim Central Coastal Drive Looping the province’s central region, the 253-kilometre Central Coastal Drive highlights two distinct shores.

Some of the Island’s most picturesque sea views are found in Green Gables Shore, along the northern portion of the Central Coastal Drive.

Western PEI is rich with ocean-fresh delicacies... Island mussels, snow crab, lobster and our celebrated Malpeque Oysters. In fact, producing a harvest of oysters served in restaurants from PEI to Europe, the North Cape Coastal Drive is The Canadian Oyster Coast. And there are dozens of entertaining lures for your cultural palate too: The Canadian Potato Museum’s Potato Country Kitchen, where everything served up, like fudge you can help make yourself, involves world-famous PEI potatoes; a church whose rare 1882 organ produces a Mi’kmaq performer symphony of sound through a sequence of 1,118 pipes; and an eclectic combination of live entertainment, from Acadian and Scottish fiddlers, to Aboriginal Mi’kmaq drummers, to pipe and drum Celtic pageants, to Summerside’s burgeoning concert scene.

The natural phenomena of North Cape –its age-old patterns of winds and tides–are what actually caused the formation of PEI’s famed north shore beaches over the millennia. Visitors can see where tides from the Northumberland Strait and the Gulf of St. Lawrence mesh; and the wind can be seen too, thanks to the presence of towering, churning turbines– found at the resident Wind Energy Institute. This contrast of nature and modernity is a constant throughout the tour: men toiling with work horses to harvest Irish Moss (when in season); oysterfarming set against the backdrop of the oyster’s natural tidal habitat; and ocean panoramas which are our celebrities–so photogenic North Cape and beautiful that you can’t help but stare. Life along the North Cape Coastal Drive is sea-centric, evoked in the names of events like The Tyne Valley Oyster Festival, the Tignish Irish Moss Festival, the Clammin’ n’ Jammin’ culinary and music festival in AbramVillage and the Summerside Lobster Festival. Or in the brands of attractions like Northport’s Sea Rescue Interpretive Centre, Green Park Shipbuilding Museum and the PEI Shellfish Museum. This is a coast you can be intimate with: red-clay roads that lead to secret coves; boats emblazoned with fun names like Water Tight Alibi; the boardwalk that traces the city of Summerside’s shoreline; and people who share with their ancestors a love for the sea and a deep appreciation for the sustenance that it provides.

Newcomers from all over the globe continue to add to the diversity of the city, which is proud of its working class heritage and entrepreneurial spirit.

Those who love the books or the TV mini-series make their way to Green Gables Shore in pilgrimage-like fashion to visit the sites that pay tribute to their favourite red-haired heroine and her creator, Lucy Maud Montgomery. While Anne may be the principal attraction for many, Green Gables Shore has more beauty and mystique North Granville up its sleeve. The region is a spectacular piece of the Island’s acclaimed scenic landscape, composed of red sandstone cliffs, white sand beaches and rolling farm fields. Some of the classic coastline has been protected in PEI National Park, which hugs the north shore in this area. Cavendish Grove is a lovely recent addition to the Park, featuring walking trails, picnic grounds and a stand of sugar maples. Golfers have a hard decision to make since Green Gables Shore has more than 10 courses located just minutes apart. For family fun, spending time in the Cavendish area is a must-do. There are amusement parks, mini golf, water slides and restaurants that cater to all ages and tastes.

These are Mother Nature’s imprints on Red Sands Shore. You’ll land in the thick of things if you arrive on the Island via the Confederation Bridge, one of the longest bridges in the world. The 13-kilometre trip takes only 10 minutes but if you’d like more time to appreciate the graceful bridge structure itself, and a chance to get a great photo, head over to the lookout area in North Carleton. Back at the foot of the Bridge, take time to visit the shops at Gateway Village. Heading east along the Chelton Beach TransCanada Highway, you will soon come to Victoriaby-the-Sea, a storybook village if ever there was one. The soul of this historic fishing village has been revitalized by the many artists and other creative people who call it home. Galleries, studios, a theatre, restaurants and, perhaps most tempting, a chocolate factory line the cozy treed streets where you RED SANDS SHORE DRIVE DISTANCES North Cape to East Point, 275 km (171 miles), 3 hours, 45 minutes Borden-Carleton to Clyde River, 49 km (30 miles), 35 minutes Victoria to Rocky Point, 36 km (22 miles), 30 minutes Hunter River to Crapaud, 21 km (13 miles), 20 minutes www.centralcoastaldrive.com This map does not contain all the place names and roads on the Island.

The rolling terrain of the Red Sands Shore region lends itself perfectly to scenic touring and a favourite way to enjoy the Island’s pastoral landscape is to follow some of our Scenic Heritage Roads. These unpaved roads will take you well off the beaten path and into an earlier time in our history. Visit Port-la-Joye– Fort Amherst National Historic Site and discover a fascinating story of settlement, struggle and upheaval as two European powers, first France then Great Britain, sought control of this strategic harbour. Experience tranquility as you stand atop the earthwork remains of Fort Amherst surrounded by magnificent views of Victoria-by-the-Sea Charlottetown Harbour. It’s easy to enjoy all four seasons in the Red Sands Shore region. When it’s too cool for our beaches and campgrounds, it’s a great time to take a walk in the woods, or venture down a country road underneath a canopy of red and golden leaves. When the snow starts to fly, the Brookvale Provincial Ski Park has enough activities to keep you wishing winter would never end. By May, the air is warm and perfect for a canoe or kayak paddle along the West River in St. Catherines. You’ll enjoy the beautiful scenery as you glide along in the shadows of the rolling Bonshaw Hills. No matter the season, the warmth of Red Sands Shore will welcome you.

Dressed in full period costume, the Fathers and Ladies will show you what makes this capital city such a historic gem. You’ll see why it’s also a vibrant urban centre that dances to a beat all its own. Canada was born (or perhaps more accurately, was conceived) here when the Fathers of Confederation met at Province House National Historic Site in 1864 to plot out the creation of Canada. Besides joining one of the entertaining guided tours, visitors can get caught up on Canadian history at Founders’ Hall, located at the foot of the Great George Street Historic District. Just steps away from Province House National Historic Site is Victoria Row. This narrow street is closed to car traffic in summer and its charming red brick buildings house an eclectic array of shops and restaurants. It seems like everyone has patio seating Victoria Row and it is the perfect place to people watch, grab a bite and a drink and enjoy the sounds of local musicians. The Confederation Centre of the Arts occupies the other side of Victoria Row. It’s here that Anne of Green Gables– The Musical™ has been delighting audiences for an incredible 51 years. The Centre is a cultural hub and attracts performers from all over the world. An impressive art gallery displays the work of diverse Canadian artists and a gift shop has hand-crafted items from across the country. The Centre also cultivates new This map does not contain all the place names and roads on the Island. For detailed information refer to the official full-size PEI Highway Map.

You should also check out The Guild for theatre, live performances, art shows and more. The Guild is a facility dedicated to the support of Island artists. For a sailor’s view of the city, a boat cruise will take you out onto the waters of Hillsborough Bay. From this vantage point, you can watch the activities along the shoreline and marvel at the copper spires of St. Dunstan’s Basilica that climb heaven-bound above the city. Every Saturday and Wednesday (in season), the country comes to the city at the Farmers’ Market, located just a few minutes’ drive from downtown. This is where traditional Island fare like fresh vegetables, meats and pies can be found alongside Cruise ships in harbour ethnic cuisine from the four corners of the world. As day turns into night, Charlottetown seems to turn into one big concert stage. Celtic bands kick up their heels and local singers belt out folksy tunes in the city’s pubs and lounges. Music is also a big part of the many summer festivals, so if you see a tent on the waterfront, chances are you’re about to be treated to some great musical talent. Charlottetown’s beauty is that, even in the heart of the city, you’re never far away from a round of golf or a day at the beach. The 18-hole Fox Meadow Golf and Country Club is just seven minutes away, in Stratford. Keep driving a little further and you’ll discover the red sands of Tea Hill Beach, a great place for shell collecting and a dip in the warm water.

Annapolis Valley Savour seafood fresh from the ocean, mouth-watering offerings from our traditional valley farms, and award-winning wines from our vineyards. All served in modern world-class restaurants, lively pubs, or beachside at authentic lobster shacks. Lose yourself in a foodie paradise where the only limit to delicious discoveries is the amount of time you have to spend here. 150 You’ll have plenty of reasons to get up early when you stay “down east,” starting with a delicious country breakfast on your cottage deck while the glowing sun rises over the ocean. That will surely get your day off to a good start and it will only get better from there. The beaches in the east are among the best on the Island; the spectacular dune system at Greenwich in PEI National Park is a must-do for this region. At Basin Head the sand will even sing to you. Really. Some say it’s the special shape of the grains or the high silica count that Wood Islands Ferry gives the sand its voice. So take a barefoot stroll along the beach and enjoy the music of “Singing Sands.” Not long ago, Islanders depended on the train to travel long distances and to deliver all sorts of goods from tip to tip.

One of the most scenic stretches of the Confederation Trail runs right through the village of St. Peters – also a good stopping point for shopping, dining, theatre and music. Although the trains are long gone, the railway hasn’t been forgotten. The Elmira Railway Museum, at the eastern tip of the Trail, tells the story of the railway. While there, you can jump on board a mini-train for a fun tour in the woods. When hunger hits, an eatery is likely just a hop, skip and a jump away. Fine dining in cozy country inns is just one choice in the Points East Coastal Drive collection of culinary experiences. For something more casual, there are family restaurants, fish and chip joints, cafés and dairy bars. As your day progresses, you might choose to go for a sail, take a seal-watching cruise or play a round or two Panmure Island at one of the world-class golf courses located in this region. And there’s always something happening at the Kings Playhouse in Georgetown. Evening is the perfect time to find a ceilidh, a spirited celebration of Celtic music that’s sure to get your toes tapping. Orwell Corner and Monticello both host these events on a weekly basis in the summer. The atmosphere is informal and you’ll feel like one of the family in no time. There’s lots to do in the Points East Coastal Drive. In fact this region boasts: 13 golf courses; 34 beaches; 6 lighthouses; 34 history and cultural attractions; 24 harbours; more than 100 restaurants; 230 fixedroof accommodations and campgrounds; 8 provincial parks; 6 Scenic Heritage Roads; and a national park.
