Famous for its expansive red sand beaches, its picturesque lighthouses and plentiful seafood – its lobsters and mussels are served worldwide – the eastern maritime province of Prince Edward Island (PEI) is one of Canada’s most popular tourist draws. Located in the Gulf of St Lawrence adjacent New Brunswick and Nova Scotia, the island is easily-accessible thanks to the magnificent 13km long Confederation Bridge, itself a big attraction in the region. Once on the island, most visitors make their way straight to Silver Bush, home of the Anne of Green Gables Museum, a fitting tribute to the life of the island’s best known inhabitant, Lucy Maud Montgomery, and her fictional creation.

PEI’s capital, Charlottetown, is itself a huge tourist draw thanks to its fine colonial architecture, Victorian-era buildings, art gallery and theatre. It’s also home to some of the East Coast’s top luxury hotels. Also popular are the many fine resorts and boutique hotels situated on the beach or by the sea and offering some of the best views anywhere in the country. PEI is also becoming increasing popular with those seeking luxury real estate and vacation homes.
