Prince Edward Island

Annie Schlechter
Prince Edward Island — Shaped like a croissant with a few bites missing, Prince Edward Island floats peacefully off the coast of New Brunswick. The smallest of Canada’s maritime provinces at just under 2,200 square miles, the island defies any preconceptions about harsh northern climates. The rocky Nova Scotian peninsula, solid bulk of Quebec, and hanging promontory of Newfoundland form a great embrace that protects the island from the frigid northern waters, so summer is warm and mild and the water is swimmable. Even at the height of what would elsewhere be the summer rush, PEI remains low-key: just a lovely, uncrowded, unhurried place that has retained its rural character – rolling meadows and potato fields – and gorgeous unspoiled coastline.

Why Go

For the laidback lifestyle, superlative local seafood and produce, and abundant outdoor pursuits.
