GATEWAY TO THE ISLAND

Prince Edward Island is well known for its coastal beaches and pastoral landscapes, quaint fishing villages and historic lighthouses—not to mention the world famous golf courses, theatre and cultural experiences, water sports and festivals galore. The Island is really quite small, making all its attractions easily accessible by car. If you can’t decide what to do first, do it all – and you’ll receive a “Tip-to-Tip” ribbon at one end of PEI and a certificate at the other.

On the other hand, if you want a more personalized stay, think of our innkeepers as your personal travel guides. They’ll happily help you secure tickets, map out your itinerary with you or recommend “must do” excursions based on your specific interests. There are Inns of Distinction located in each of our Island’s touring regions; visit their profile pages to see further attractions in their area.
