PEI stretches 224km tip to tip; it’s 6km wide at its narrowest point, and 64km at its widest. The island is a low-lying hump of iron-rich red sandstone and earth. Its highest point rises 152m above sea level, at Springton – smack dab in the middle of the province.
July and August are the warmest and driest months. In winter the snow can be meters deep, but it rarely hinders the major roadways. The last of the white stuff is usually gone by May.
