Prince Edward Island

Annie Schlechter
It’s all about timing. To avoid crowds and inflated prices, we recommend the period between high and low seasons when the weather is fine, places are still open and happy to welcome travelers, and you can explore a destination at your own pace. ShermansTravel experts call this magical time and space continuum the Sweet Spot.

When to go to Prince Edward Island

Peak Season: July to August

Most visitors come to PEI in the summer, when warm temperatures permit swimming, golfing, biking, and a host of other outdoor activities. Not surprisingly, this is also when lodging rates are at their highest.

Off Season: November to April

Canadian winters are less harsh here due to the island’s sheltered location, but you can still expect abundant snowfall and temperatures that average in the 10s and 20s. Many hotels and restaurants are closed throughout the winter and spring, though you should be able to find accommodations in Charlottetown and Summerside.

Sweet Spot: May to June, September to October

Spring comes late to PEI but is well worth the wait in May and June. Many hotels and inns offer lower rates for this period, as well as in late September and October as the summer season winds down.
