Prince Edward Island

Prince Edward Island (PEI) is the smallest Canadian province and the birthplace of Canada’s confederation and is also possibly best known as the birthplace of Anne of Green Gables! The story brings Prince Edward Island to life and the Island rightly celebrates its renowned contribution to world literature and the little girl whose youth it describes. You can visit the farm in Cavendish, with its picket fences and gabled house, that inspired the books location, as well as enjoying a play about Anne during the Charlottetown Festival.

As a holiday destination, Prince Edward Island has a slow relaxed pace, wonderful beaches and phenomenal golf courses. As part of a fly-drive holiday, driving across the 9 mile long bridge from New Brunswick to Prince Edward Island and then taking the ferry to Nova Scotia, makes for a splendid Atlantic Canada holiday.

For a family beach holiday, Prince Edward Island offers fantastic red sandy beaches with easy bicycle riding and kayaking.

Prince Edward Island is small and you can use Charlottetown as your holiday base to see most of it, but if you want to get out of town, you could to spend some time in the western end of the island or in a lighthouse on the north shore.
