Prince Edward Island is the smallest Canadian province in size and population. The capital city is Charlottetown. Visitors come to the Island to enjoy its pastoral scenery, relaxing white sandy beaches and relaxing pace.
Cradled on the waves of the Gulf of St. Lawrence, the Island is known for the vivid colours of its gently rolling landscape. Prince Edward Island is surrounded by miles of sandy beaches and red sandstone cliffs and is sized just right for touring. It is only about 240 kilometers from tip to tip, 6 to 60 kilometers wide and is home to 140,000 people, mainly Scottish and Irish descendants.
The Islanders way of life is clearly expressed in their arts, culture and heritage. Everywhere you will find crafts, theatres, and festivals that celebrate life on the Island. Enjoy delicious lobster suppers, stroll uncrowded beaches, or play golf on more than a dozen courses. Visit the places described in the story, Anne of Green Gables by Lucy Maud Montgomery. PEI has something to offer everyone.
