Welcome to Prince Edward Island

The island is, as far as islands go, largely self-sufficient and has gained a reputation as a farm- and ocean-to-table culinary destination. Its size makes it easy to explore by car or bike – the island's Confederation Trail is one of the world's best cycling destinations. And, like the rest of the Maritime provinces, its people are warm and inviting.
