What’s in your guide? So much! We’ve designed our guide to help you plan your vacation. On an island this size, you may be surprised at just how much there is to see and do here. Enjoy the beautiful photos and fun articles in the first part of our guide, where you can learn about Island culture, experiences, outdoor adventure and touring routes. Look for Ask an Islander tips in this guide for actual questions asked by visitors, and answers by the people who live here. Don’t forget to take a look at this year’s Festivals & Events schedule, and remember that for the latest up-to-the-minute information, you can call us toll free 1-800-463-4PEI or visit www.tourismpei.com. In the second part of our guide you’ll find categories for Things to do, Food & Beverage, Shopping, Services and Places to Stay organized by the five colour-coded Touring Regions. The listings within each category are arranged alphabetically by community, then alphabetically by the name of the establishment. Accommodations are grouped in four main categories: Camping; Hotels/Motels/Resorts; Cottages / Houses / Apartments; and Inns /Bed & Breakfasts. See page 82 for an explanation of the symbols and abbreviations used in this guide. Speaking of symbols, look for the open-off-season symbol (N) which identifies establishments open before June 15 and/or after September 15.

Islandness

Charlene Belsher

Q: Are there any local authentic kitchen parties in the east end of the Island? - Scott S. A: That is a little question with a big answer! There are so many ceilidhs in eastern PEI that it would take me hours to list them all! And then everyone has a different definition of ‘authentic’. My best suggestion is to check out the website ‘PEI Ceilidhs’. The ones listed are from across the Island, so you will have to find one in the area that you are staying. For an amazing, unique ‘on the water’ kitchen party experience, consider joining Island fiddler and fisherman, J.J. Chaisson aboard his boat, ‘Chaisson a Dream’ for a sail and some tunes. J - Charlene Belsher

North Rustico

To really get an understanding of Islandness try one of our many Authentic PEI Experiences. We have more than 65 incredible adventures for you to choose from tourismpei.com/pei-experiences.

What is it? It’s that special something that you feel when you’re on Prince Edward Island. You will recognize it, but you may not be able to put your finger on exactly what it is. Is it the salt in the air, the red cliffs that line our sandy beaches, the golf, the cuisine or the people who welcome you time and time again into their homes and into their lives? It’s all this and more. Our way of life here on the Island is unique; you will be relaxed yet excited, stress free and alive. Prince Edward Island might be small, but we are surprisingly abundant in adventure and activities. The feeling you get on the Island is one-of-a-kind. Everyone can use a little Islandness in their life and we can’t wait for you to experience it.

Q: Where is the best restaurant in Charlottetown to have mussels? Not touristy. I’ll be there in September. - Chris M. A: While on PEI, you will find mussels on most restaurant menus! It’s a year round staple here. If you’re coming in September, the PEI International Shellfish Festival  happens every September. It’s the celebration of all our wonderful shellfish – mussels, oysters and  lobster. As far as restaurants in Charlottetown to try mussels – a few of my favourites are the Claddagh Oyster House, The Merchantman,  Water Prince Corner Shop, Papa Joes, and these are just a few! If you wander outside of Charlottetown try the Blue Mussel Café in North Rustico, located on the wharf with spectacular views! J - Jeff McCourt

Q: How much time would it take to visit all of the Anne of Green Gables sites plus the hour-long carriage ride? - Lisa. B. A: If you are focusing on the Anne of Green Gables attractions I would recommend at least one day, especially with the hour-long carriage ride. If you allow yourself two days you could enjoy the sites at a slower pace. Allow at least one hour for each location. You can get an idea of how to spend your time visiting these attractions by reviewing the Anne of Green Gables itinerary on the Tourism PEI website. Some other Anne attractions would be Bideford Parsonage Museum, Lower Bedeque Schoolhouse, Anne of Green Gables–The Musical™, Anne and Gilbert: the Musical and Orwell Corner Historic Village to name a few.

Anne of Green Gables–The Musical™

Argyle Shore

Luc y

Montgomery’s Island. L.M. Montgomery may have created her as a fictional character, but the spirit of Anne Shirley is alive in every corner of this place. That sassy redhead knew how to push buttons but she always got her point across, especially about how much she loved PEI. We totally agree with her; Green Gables is completely magical. The rest of the Island is too. You can feel the influence that this Island had on Montgomery and how that is reflected in her character, Anne. You can visit where Montgomery was born, married, taught, and wrote. See her book come alive in Charlottetown at Anne of Green Gables–The Musical™ at the Confederation Centre of the Arts or in Anne & Gilbert: The Musical at The Guild. With the third season of ANNE with an E renewed on Netflix, new fans are discovering this fiery, empowering character every day and at the same time, Prince Edward Island. You will quickly understand why Montgomery wrote Anne as being enchanted by life here. It’s because she herself was. Braid your pigtails and come explore PEI through Anne’s eyes.

Chase the sunrise, race the sunset and explore the shoreline for unforgettable views and adventure. We have three coastal drives, each one is different and all beg to be explored. You will discover farmlands, fishing villages, cities, breathtaking views and charming small towns. In the North Cape Coastal Drive, you will find houses made of glass bottles, a potato museum, hear Acadian music, and see wind turbine farms. The Central Coastal Drive takes you through fishing villages, past Cavendish Beach and attractions, into Victoria-by-the-Sea. Enjoy the stunning views of the Confederation Bridge. Points East Coastal Drive is all about beaches; over 50 in fact, all part of the eastern end of the Island. Make sure to stop at Greenwich National Park and walk the trail to the shore, or go back in time with a visit to Orwell Corner Historic Village. We’ve only mentioned a few of the attractions and experiences you will find on each drive. Be sure to take your time, and plan to stop and explore often. You will find hidden gems along the way.

Q: How long would it take to complete all three of the coastal drives - NJ. A: The length of time to do all three coastal drives depends on the type of person you are. The “love to stop and take pictures” type, or the “likes to just drive from location to location” type. With our drives having beautiful scenic lookouts around every corner, I’m the type who likes to stop and take pictures. Points East Coastal Drive is the largest and would take approximately six hours without stopping, Central Coastal Drive would take about three hours, and the North Cape Coastal Drive would take four to five. But I suggest taking your time and exploring. J - Nicky Howatt

Q: Which is the best cycling trail close to the ocean that I can take to get the best picture of red cliffs, which I love? - Marie-Eve L. A: That is great! I would recommend the Prince Edward Island National Park’s Gulf Shore Parkway multi-use trail in the Cavendish - North Rustico section. This trail is a paved path which runs along the coastline yet is separated from the road to allow you to feel comfortable and safe so that you can enjoy the view. This trail also extends into the Brackley-Dalvay section as well and has beautiful views of the sand dunes. To learn more about cycling on PEI, please visit www.tourismpei.com/peicycling. J - Elizabeth Jorgensen

Take it outside! Being surrounded by water can only mean one thing: fun is going to be had. Dive in and experience the warmest waters north of the Carolinas. You can swim, kayak, paddleboard, snorkel, kiteboard, go parasailing and so much more. Prince Edward Island is often described as a cyclist’s dream, with scenery worth slowing down for, and trails that will make your heart race. Experience the Confederation Trail, 435 kilometres (269 miles) of rolled stone-dust surface that will lead you tip-to-tip across the Island, with stops in small towns along the way. There are lots of hiking and mountain biking trails to get your adrenaline rushing, or take it easy as you slow down and stroll along the coast. Go golfing, horseback riding, and more. Your adventures have no seasonal limits on PEI. Have fun in the snow by skiing, skating and snowshoeing. The Confederation Trail is turned over to snowmobilers in the winter months. Big adventure awaits in our small province. See more at www.tourismpei.com/adventure.

Did you know that Malpeque Bay is not only famous for oysters, but also kiteboarding? The shallow waters and strong wind off the coast make it a world-class destination for this epic activity. more about

Some of our courses overlook the ocean, or run alongside rivers and trails. The Island’s size is such an advantage when it comes to golf, because it makes it possible to play more than one of our world-class courses in a day! Are you travelling in a group, or for work? Our facilities are able to accommodate your needs. All this and more make us an incredible golf destination.

Q: On what date is it generally too chilly for a round of golf on PEI? - Garry H. A: Every October, our phones ring asking which course is still open for play. Most years, the majority of our courses close in the first or second week of October but we always have a couple that will stay open until November, depending on the temperatures. If you are considering a golf trip to PEI, we usually book packages no later than the first few days of October but again, it is always dependent on weather. Golf PEI has a handy guide for both open and close dates for its 18 member courses. Dates will change often as we near the end of September or early October so be sure to check often. J - Mark McLane

You can book your tee times online at www.golfpei.ca for some of our best courses including Eagles Glenn, Mill River, Belfast Highland Greens and Countryview.

Q: What is the number one beach for finding starfish or sea glass? - Keanna M. A: We have many great beaches that you can search for starfish and sea glass, though typically beaches in the eastern part of PEI are among the best for sea glass. Souris beach is well-known for having many pieces of sea glass wash up on its shoreline. You may also want to check out Sally’s Beach Provincial Park. As for starfish searching, there is not necessarily one area that is the best, though the Georgetown area tends to be a great spot to look. Tranquility Cove Adventures actually offers a guided beach hunt to find starfish! J - Kelly Richard

Where sea meets shore. One of the best parts of being on an island is being surrounded by beaches and ours are nothing short of world class. It is hard to choose which beach to visit first, but luckily, all our 1100 kilometres of shoreline is beautiful. You can choose the south side of the Island for warm water and red sand, or check out the north side which has a rolling surf and pristine white sand. Relax in the sunshine, breathe in the salt air, take a dip, search for starfish, make the sandcastle of your dreams, walk along the red cliffs, and watch the sun set over the ocean. There is nothing quite like it. Grab your sunscreen, a towel, and come find your Island.

PEI National Park

Hi

l ls

Shared wonders. Dreaming of stargazing and endless play? Eight of the Island’s provincial parks include campsites; there are also many private and national park campgrounds to choose from. For a small province, there is no shortage of green space. We have 14 provincial parks with free day-use and the Prince Edward Island National Park spans over 60 km of the north shore. Bonshaw Hills Provincial Park provides 18 km of trails for you to explore, as well as a playground and picnic area that the entire family can enjoy. The PEI National Park and many of our provincial parks offer interpretive programs and children’s programming throughout the season, as well as special fun events. Walk along the coastline, explore the trails, museums and heritage sites, spot local wildlife, and do some stargazing. It’s time to get back to nature, don’t you think? Let our trails guide you to find the vacation of your dreams. Visit tourismpei.com/parks for more information.

Stephen DesRoches

Q: Where is a good place to watch the sunset near Summerside? - Randy W. A: If you are in Summerside, I would start with the waterfront for sunset. The boardwalk offers a nice view of the water and the Indian Head Lighthouse in the distance. If you would like to see a sunset over the ocean, perhaps Cabot Park in Malpeque, it would be about a 30-minute drive. The Cap-Egmont Lighthouse is also a 30-minute drive and would be a great place to watch the sunset over the Northumberland Strait. I also suggest Chelton Beach Provincial Park or the Seacow Head lighthouse in Fernwood. Both are about 20 minutes from Summerside and offer fantastic views of the sun setting over the water! J - Stephen DesRoches

At Greenwich, PEI National Park, you can literally walk on water; well technically you walk over water. The floating boardwalk is super cool and leads to an unforgettable view of the unique parabolic dunes and a spectacular beach! Visit www.parkscanada.ca/pei. more about

Q: How would you describe PEI Culture? - Esha R. A: Generally speaking, Prince Edward Island’s culture is best explained by its history, which includes First Nation, French/ Acadian, British, Scottish, Irish, Lebanese, and more recently, immigrants and refugees arriving from all over the world. You can’t have a culture without it coming through in other expressions, such as theatre, museums and the arts. We have an abundance of festivals and events that celebrate our diverse culture here on the Island. J - Linda MacDougall

Q: Where is the best place to find good music and entertainment near Bedeque? - Aldona D. A: Bedeque is a pretty little spot, full of colourful farm fields and seaside views. In nearby Victoria-bythe-Sea (also located on PEI’s south shore) plan to attend a show at the Victoria Playhouse, located in a historic community hall that celebrates 100 years this year. They have a terrific lineup of stage entertainment this year, including comedies, plays, and music shows. Also, Bedeque is only a 10-minute drive to Summerside, home of the Harbourfront Theatre! Enjoy your south shore vacation. J - Peggy Miles

Our theatres themselves have amazing histories. The King’s Playhouse in Georgetown is one of the longest running theatres in Canada – it’s been open for over 120 years. Some even say it’s haunted! Visit tourismpei.com/theatres.

Stop for the cheesy family vacation photo, eat ice cream every chance you get, sleep under the stars or create a fort in your car and take in a movie at the drive-in theatre. On our small island, you will find limitless adventure and fun. Even though you can easily schedule your vacation to be jam packed, we won’t judge if all you want to do is hang out at a cottage or on the beach with your family and a good book!

Q: We would like to know what are the best attractions for a young family and youthful grandparents. We are looking for an outdoor centric vacation but we don’t mind the occasional indoor activity. - Peter S. A: I personally think a day at the beach is the best activity for children under 6 (and of all ages too!). It’s a place where families can connect, have fun and relax together. You can play in the shallow water close to the beach, build sand sculptures or castles. You can search for seashells, or collect seaglass. There are so many beautiful beaches on the Island to choose from, but my favourites are located on the south shore.  I love the red sand, the water is a bit warmer and you can dig for clams!

Q: My family has been coming to PEI every summer for many years and we usually spend time on the eastern end of the Island. Do you have suggestions on what to see and do on the western end? - Ivan S. A: I love the western end of the Island and spend quite a bit of time up there! I enjoy The Paths of our Forefathers guided walking tour, the Yeo House Museum and the West Point Lighthouse (some consider both to be haunted), the North Cape Interpretive Centre, The Bottle Houses and Village musical acadien. Another favourite place of mine is the Canadian Potato Museum in O’Leary. Also, the Stompin’ Tom Centre in Skinners Pond is another great attraction! J - Patty Murphy

Let’s just play! Let your kids help you explore the Island through their eyes full of excitement, endless energy, and a hunger for fun. Ride a mini-train and bumper cars, zip down a waterslide, play laser tag or battle it out over some mini-golf. Feel that rush of adrenaline as you ride to the top of the ferris wheel, or as you’re starting the descent on the rollercoaster track. Fall in love with your wild side while horseback riding. Discover your competitive side while paintballing. Get spooked at Route 6 Motel, battle it out with laser tag. After the sun goes down enjoy some live music, go dancing, visit an art gallery, or try one of our amazing restaurants, breweries, wineries, cideries or distilleries. There is never a dull moment around here! Join in on the fun and come find your Island. See more at tourismpei.com/pei-holiday-fun.

Authentic PE I Experiences

Linda MacDougall

Q: We are coming to the Island the end of June and are looking for a “real” experience. What would you recommend? - Lori W. A: You may be interested in Top Notch Charters - Lobster Excursions, located right on the Charlottetown waterfront. You get to embark on an authentic lobster boat, haul a lobster trap with a lobster-fishing crew. Another suggestion is The Fiddling Fisherman in Souris. Join the captain out on his fishing boat as he regales you with fiddle music, dance and hands-on learning of how to fish and “play the spoons”. J - Linda MacDougall

As proud Islanders, we are excited to share our stories, traditions, and way of life with the people who visit us. We want to make you feel at home here, like part of the family. Our Authentic PEI Experiences give you the chance to roll up your sleeves like a local. To help you navigate your life as an Islander, we have created a collection of certified Authentic PEI Experiences for you to choose from. Learn an Acadian dance step, how to make a hand drum with an Indigenous artisan, how to properly shuck an oyster, and have incredible farm-to-table cooking and dining experiences. This is just a small taste of some of the activities you can take part in. Yes, you will get your hands dirty. You might also get your shoes wet. And your knees stained. All temporary, but the memory of your Island experiences will last a lifetime.

Q: I am wondering if there are any specialty yarn shops or dryers on the Island? - Agnes P. A: My wife Gayle made me go with her on a trip to a “yarn shop” a couple of years ago. When we got there I couldn’t believe she hadn’t made me go earlier. They make mini-mills and sell them all over the world, you can watch them work with exotic wools and buy finished products. Yes, I am talking about the Belfast Mini Mills in Belfast and it is well worth the trip. There is also a brochure on the fibre trail that you can pick up and travel the Island looking at weavers and wool producers. J - Peter Llewellyn

History & Heritage

Our past comes alive. The first residents of

Photos: Confederation Players / STEPHEN HARRIS; Orwell Corner / EMILY O’BRIEN Abegweit Pow Wow / Acadian Performers / JOHN SYLVESTER; Summerside / STEPHEN DESROCHES

the Island were the Mi’kmaq. They called the Island ‘Epekwitk’ which means “resting on the waves”. In 1534 the Island was discovered by Jacques Cartier and named ‘Île Saint-Jean’, only to be renamed in 1799 after the British occupied the Island and called it Prince Edward Island, in honour of Prince Edward, Duke of Kent. Charlottetown became known as the Birthplace of Confederation after the 1864 meeting where delegates from the provinces of Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Ontario and Québec met to discuss forming a nation. This historic event is kept alive as the Confederation Players stroll about Charlottetown throughout the summer and perform as the Fathers and Ladies of Confederation. Hear stories of Island settlers such as First Nations, French, English, Irish and Scottish at venues and festivals across the Island. Learn more about PEI’s Indigenous heritage by visiting the Mi’kmaq Cultural Centre and attending the Abegweit Pow Wow. Experience the life of French pioneers at Roma at Three Rivers. See the history of our great nation’s past through the eyes of Canada’s smallest province.

Q: I love history. Where are some good places to visit and make sure we see on our trip? - Kasey F. A: You’re coming to the right place if history is what you’re into! There are a number of museums here to explore – check out the websites for the PEI Museum and Heritage Foundation and Community Museum Association of PEI. Also, in Charlottetown be sure to check out the Story of Confederation exhibit. A couple companies offer walking tours of the historic area of Charlottetown – I highly recommend this as the guides are awesome and can give you some great info on what Charlottetown was like way back when.

Summerside is well known throughout Canada for its 19th and early 20th century residential architecture. Be sure to stop into the Lefurgey Cultural Centre, the crown jewel of Summerside’s 1860s architecture, and pick up a self-guided walking tour publication. more about

Q: We would love to visit a farm producing potatoes. Could you tell us where and how? - Francois L. A: To visit a PEI potato farm, my suggestion is to contact the Canadian Potato Museum in O’Leary, PEI. They do farm tours, they have an excellent museum on the history of our potato industry, and everything you ever wanted to know about potatoes! You can even learn to make PEI potato fudge, if you so choose! There are lots of farm stands on the side of the road, beside the farms where the produce was grown. Take the time to stop and leave a few dollars and pick up a bag of your own potatoes! J - Kendra Mills

Discover traditions of long ago. Our provincial and community museums will take you back in time to explore our rich history. Whether you’re interested in planes, trains, automobiles, one-room schoolhouses, elegant mansions, the silver fox industry, or Mi’kmaq, Acadian or Celtic culture, our museums can bring the stories and the history of the Island to life. Some of the museums you discover have interesting histories themselves–including Elmira Railway Museum, Bideford Parsonage Museum and Green Park Shipbuilding Museum & Historic Yeo House. You can learn more about PEI museums by visiting www.peimuseum.com. Many of our museums are experience-based such as Roma at Three Rivers where you can learn how to bake traditional French bread. While it’s great to live in the present– it can be fun to take a peek into the past. Find more information and a complete list of our museums at tourismpei.com/museums.

Taste our Island

Photos: The Dunes Café / DAVE BROSHA

A visit to the Island isn’t complete until you experience the restaurant at The Dunes Studio Gallery and Café in Brackley Beach. Surrounded by vibrant art and spectacular botanical gardens and inspired cuisine makes The Dunes one of the most amazing culinary destinations and the winner of the 2018 Taste our Island Award. Chef Norman Day taps into the heart of the Island’s agricultural community and sources most of his products from local farmers and The Dunes’ gardens. “We are trying to bring a full array of flavours, making it a delight to come here. Flavours from here and around the world that are exciting yet familiar.” These can be anything from local banana bread or fresh halibut, to curries from far and wide. Chef Day began his culinary career when he started his own restaurant at the age of 19 in Newfoundland. In 1998 he moved to PEI to study at the Culinary Institute of Canada, honing his skills to a fine edge. After 15 years as Executive Chef at well-known restaurants on the Island, and then five seasons at The Dunes, he couldn’t be happier. He says The Dunes is the most creative place he has ever worked. “We are so ‘local’, we even make our own plates. Gallery owner and potter Peter Jansons is always surprising me. If I need a special plate for one of my dishes, Peter will create it for me.” www.dunesgallery.com

Lighthouses

Welcoming lights.

Charlene Belsher

Q: My husband and I will be visiting PEI in September. Are there any lighthouse tours available, and are any of the lighthouses open to the public for viewing inside? - Patti B. A: You have picked the right place to visit if you love lighthouses! There are 63 lighthouses and range lights on Prince Edward Island, and though some are privately owned, or decommissioned, there are eight that open seasonally for visiting and touring. These lighthouses are: West Point, Victoria Seaport, Point Prim, Wood Islands, Cape Bear, Panmure Island, Souris and East Point. There is a pamphlet you can pick up at PEI Visitor Information Centres called ‘Lighthouses of Prince Edward Island’ that features lighthouse stories and photos. J - Charlene Belsher

From the top of a lighthouse is one of the best places to see the Island. The views are unforgettable. PEI has more than 60 lighthouses along our red shore, each more beautiful than the last, so have your camera ready! Many are still navigational today and eight of them are open to the public! You can tour them, shop in them, climb to the top. You can even stay the night at the West Point Lighthouse! Be sure to visit different lighthouses and see the many landscapes of the Island or catch the sunset from a bird’s-eye view. We have created a whole tour for you lighthouse lovers that can be found at tourismpei.com/lighthouse-lovers-tour. The draw to a lighthouse is undeniable. When you see one you just have to explore. Their lights let you know you’re safe, and welcomed. Let our lighthouses guide you here, let their charm make you want to stay.

Any time of year is a good time to visit PEI. Spring brings a bounty of fresh blooms, the seasonal shops begin to open, and the waters are the bluest of blue. In June, lupins make their appearance and the festival season kicks off! Enjoy the Festival of Small Halls which will lead you to small communities for oneof-a-kind shows all over the Island. In summer enjoy the warm salt-air breeze through your hair. Get adventurous with water sports, go for a challenging round of golf, and explore our stunning beaches. It’s a jam-packed time of year. The fall foliage on PEI is amazing. Displays of bright orange, yellow and red make hiking, cycling, festivals, and apple picking all the more enjoyable. The Fall Flavours Festival, which is dedicated to our culinary, runs the entire month of September and includes the popular PEI International Shellfish Festival. Winter brings a blanket of snow and cooler temperatures, perfect for snowshoeing, skiing, fatbiking and ice-skating. In February, the Jack Frost Festival features ice sculptures, giant ice slides and family activities. No matter when you arrive on Prince Edward Island, you just won’t want to leave.

Q: We are planning a trip for either May or September. Can you tell me the pros/cons for each, especially weather and foliage growth? - Ann K. A: May can be a beautiful time of year to visit. The weather is getting warmer, the flowers are starting to bloom and the farmers are getting onto the land. Traffic tends to be lighter and many businesses operate on shoulder season rates. September is my personal favourite. The weather usually stays beautiful throughout the month and there is always plenty to do. The days are still quite warm and the evenings are a bit cooler. Towards the latter part of the month, the leaves begin to change into amazing shades of red, orange and yellow. And the farmers are on the land harvesting their crops. J - Patty Murphy

Travel information

GETTING HERE Being surrounded by water is no deterrent to visiting the Island. It actually makes the trip that much more fun. Whichever mode of travel you choose, you will notice that Prince Edward Island’s crescent shape is perfect for a grand circuit tour. Start in the east, arriving by ferry at Wood Islands, loop your way around East Point, then all the way to North Cape in the west, before departing by the dramatic Confederation Bridge. Or, reverse the procedure and begin at the Confederation Bridge. In either case, keep in mind that the bridge and ferry tolls are paid only on departure. Have fun and happy touring!

D i d Yo u K n o w ?

• ensure your children are supervised 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 (see diagram on page 54). 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

PAUL BAGLO LE

Enjoying the warm waters surrounding the Island is a very popular activity. To fully enjoy your beach experience please follow these tips: • always swim in supervised beach areas, see illustrated map on page 54. • never swim alone. Always swim with a buddy and watch out for each other. • do not consume alcohol or drugs before or while swimming. Alcohol and drugs impair your abilities and judgment. • weaker swimmers and young children should wear a properlysized life jacket or personal flotation device (PFD) at all times.

GREEN ISLAND As a small island province, Prince Edward Island depends on the land and the sea as the basis for its three traditional primary industries – farming, tourism and the fishery. 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.

East Lake 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 Watershed Management Fund provides support to wildlife habitat enhancement projects; wetland, riparian, and stream habitat enhancement. • support for the Island Nature Trust, which protects 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 tourismpei.com/pei-environment. PEI is one of the global leaders in the development of wind energy. The Wind Energy Institute of Canada is located in North Cape, which is an area of the Island with an outstanding wind resource. The Island gets more than 30% of its electricity needs from renewable sources. BEACH BITS Swimming at PEI beaches is comfortable due to the presence of the Gulf Stream and the very shallow shelf, which allows the water to heat up quite nicely. Water temperatures can reach

20ºC (70ºF) in July and August. • some Island beaches are host to the nesting sites of the endangered Piping Plover. • marram grass holds our delicate sand dunes in place. • our “singing sands” at Basin Head make a squeaky noise due to high silica content. • carrageenan, an extract from Irish Moss found on PEI shores, is used in ice cream. OUR FRAGILE DUNES Always 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. In an effort to keep this stunning natural resource intact, clearly marked access points to the beach have been designated. Please don’t play or walk on the dunes; there are plenty of places to play on the beach. The eco-system will thank you. ST CL AIR MAC AUL AY

HOW’S THE WEATHER? Spring here is comfortable. June is alive with colour, and temperatures range from 8 to 22ºC (46 to 71ºF). Summer is hot, but rarely very humid. The daytime temperatures are usually in the 20s (70s) and can go as high as 32ºC (90ºF). The water at the beach is nice for swimming in July and August. Autumn is clear and bright. September afternoons can be quite warm, evenings are cool. Temperatures usually range from 8 to 22ºC (46 to 71ºF). Winter is crisp and clean. Temperatures usually range from -3 to -11ºC (26 to 12ºF).

of one of PEI’s Fathers of Confederation, Andrew A. MacDonald. The Hillsborough River offers a varied set of experiences, from insights into the rich oyster fishery to the wildlife and birds of the river system, to the historical and cultural features of the area.

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

Mooney’s Pond marked with a brown two-tree symbol ( ) on our highway map. Find out more on www. tourismpei.com/heritage-roads. LEAVE THE FIREWOOD HOME Throwing a few pieces of firewood into the trunk of the car before a trip might seem like a good idea, but those logs could destroy a forest. Firewood can carry small but harmful hitchhikers hidden in the wood. The damage caused by invasive species such as the emerald ash borer can expand exponentially when they get a free ride. In fact, the emerald ash borer has killed millions of ash trees across Canada. Animals and birds lose their habitat. The solution is easy: leave your firewood at home and pick some up locally instead. For more information call 902-368-4711.

PUBLIC NATURAL AREAS AND WETLANDS 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. We are also very proud of the almost 100 ponds and wetlands that are both natural and man-made habitats, rich in terms of biodiversity and critical to the survival of many species. For more information call 902-368-6450.

HERITAGE RIVERS PEI has two Canadian Heritage River systems: one in the Hillsborough River area and the other in the Three Rivers area of Cardigan, Brudenell and Montague. The river systems have been recognized for their rich cultural history. Brudenell Point was the site of an early French settlement (now Roma at Three Rivers) and the birthplace

considered poor man’s food. Some Island farmers put crushed lobster shells on their fields as fertilizer. Male mussels are light in colour while female mussels are a yellowish rust colour. Each year, PEI mussel farmers harvest more than 37 million pounds of delicious mussels bound for markets around the world. The rows of buoys seen in many Island bays mark the miles of mussel lines suspended just beneath the surface. Oysters really are good for you – a great source of protein, and high in zinc! Malpeque Oysters may be grown anywhere in PEI. More and more, growers are branding the oysters according to the local source, such as Colville Bay or Raspberry Point. Can you tell the difference?

Friendly vacation planners are ready to help you plan your itinerary or give you the scoop on the latest local activities and things to do. DIG YOUR MEAL Many of PEI’s shores are blessed with natural stocks of clams. Whether you prefer bar clams, soft-shell clams or quahaugs there is a “fishy” experience for you. While a recreational license to dig clams is not required, there are season, size and possession limits, and some areas are closed

to shellfish harvesting. Soft-shell clams and quahaugs must be at least 50 mm (approx 2”) in length and bar clams must be at least 102 mm (approx 4”) in length for harvest. No more than 100 clams can be caught and retained per person, in any day, of all species combined including: bar clam, bay quahaug, soft-shell clam and razor clam. Quahaugs cannot be harvested on Sundays. Contact the Dept of Fisheries and Oceans at 902-566-7814 for more information and for areas where it’s safe to dig. Please be mindful that this resource is also a vibrant commercial fishery on PEI and conservation is important.

ON THE TRAILS PEI is the first province to complete its section of The Great Trail. The Confederation Trail was developed on abandoned railway lines more than two decades ago. 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. The tip-to-tip distance on the Trail (Tignish to Elmira) is 273 km. There are 160 km of branch trails that lead to places like Souris, Montague and Borden-Carleton.

If you’re travelling to our Island via the Confederation Bridge, we invite you to take a deep breath of fresh ocean air when you arrive. As you approach the gateway to Prince Edward Island, listen to the songs of seabirds and the soothing rhythm of waves along the coastline. You’ve landed in the Red Sands Shore region of the Central Coastal Drive, and no matter where you turn, you’ll find friendly, fun-loving

of the region, and you’re certain to find a reward at road’s end.

Points East Coastal Drive Points East Coastal Drive is 475 kilometres (295 miles) of roads that meander along coastal roadways, through unique harbours and over rolling hills with picturesque farmland views. There are endless opportunities to stop, explore, take in the fresh air and enjoy the serene beauty. From East Point to Point Prim,

Cape Bear to Savage Harbour and everywhere in between, the area boasts fine eateries that feature the flavourful bounty harvested from the land or sea. Fill your days hiking or cycling trails; kayaking or sailing along the shore; swimming, fly fishing, shopping at the many artisan studios and exquisite handcraft shops, or exploring

local history at one of many lighthouses or historic sites. At the end of the day, a great night’s sleep can be found at resort hotels, charming inns, welcoming bed & breakfasts, or a quiet cottage by the shore. If you prefer to camp out with fresh air and the stars overhead, check in to one of the provincial parks or private campgrounds.

50 BEACHES AND SO MUCH MORE With more than 50 beaches to discover, Points East Coastal Drive will entice you to visit them all! There are beaches for swimming, kayaking, paddle boarding, clamming, beach glass and starfish hunting. Craving solitude and the ability to be one of a few people walking along a vast stretch of sand? Points East has that too! Our best known beach is Basin Head, a nine-mile stretch of magnificent white sand that ‘sings’. This beach was recently named ‘The Best Beach in Canada’ by Canadian Travel website vacay.ca.

CUISINE, WINE & SPIRITS Chef Michael Smith, the popular Food Network TV host, and his wife Chastity, owners of Fireworks Restaurant at The Inn at Bay Fortune, have spurred the development of a number of great restaurants across the region. Unique recipes, prize-winning chowder, and delectable desserts can be found at country inns, fish and chip stands, restaurants and cafés scattered throughout eastern PEI. For the full Island experience, pair your meal with fine wine from one of the local wineries, a beverage from a distillery or a cold one from Copper Bottom Brewing.

VISIT PEI NATIONAL PARK - GREENWICH Escape into a truly unique landscape. Experience a sense of awe and serenity as you take in the towering parabolic dune system and pristine white-sand beaches at Greenwich. An extensive trail system offers hiking and cycling opportunities, a wheelchair accessible loop, a floating boardwalk, and interpretive panels. Beachgoers enjoy the secluded expanse of soft sand and comfortable picnic areas, as well as a supervised swimming area. The Greenwich Interpretation Centre features interactive and multi-media displays.

EXPLORE OUR LIGHTHOUSES Lighthouse lovers will delight in the six lighthouses that are open to the public. Listen to the story of the Cape Bear Lighthouse receiving the distress signal from the Titanic; tour the Island’s oldest lighthouse at Point Prim; watch the ferry come and go from Wood Islands Lighthouse; view the town from the Souris Lighthouse and be entranced by the water at the East Point Lighthouse and Panmure Island Lighthouse.

A taste of what to see and do in the Points East Coastal Drive region.

ARTISANS AND SHOPPING In areas of natural beauty, great artists gather and eastern PEI is rich with both! We have potters, quilters, painters, jewellery makers, glass artists and knitters. Plan to visit a few of the artisan studios, woolen mills, and artists cooperatives such as Artisans on Main in Montague and Souris.
