After a long wait, we are so excited to welcome visitors back to our gentle Island! You deserve a vacation more than ever, and there is no better destination than the island of sprawling beaches, world-class cuisine, and relaxing accommodations.
With PEI’s 5-stage re-opening plan set in place, Summer 2021 is going to be a hit. As you start planning your Island getaways, we’ve created a list of perfectly PEI activities to add to your wish list. The Island awaits!
Consider the SEAnic route
Make the trip to and from the Island in the safest way possible! Relax, stretch your legs, and enjoy the stunning panoramic views atop the Northumberland Ferries Limited. When your journey across the Northumberland Strait is a mini vacation in itself, you’ll be disembarking to PEI bliss before you know it.
Your home away from home
A telltale sign of a great day of vacation is when you can sit back, relax, and rest well at the end of the day. Your choices for accommodations across the Island range from camping in a tent on the sandy shores to waking up in a cozy bed with a spectacular view of the sunrise! A newly renovated cottage at Cavendish Bosom Buddies gives you panoramic views of the ocean, By the Bay Cottages in Stanhope are just minutes from the Island’s iconic National Park beaches, Shining Waters – Ingleside Cottages offers the warmth of community, and Marco Polo Land offers hours of Water Zone kid-friendly fun in the heart of PEI.
The best part of cottage life is – of course – bonfires! Build your crackling fire and roast some marshmallows, or shuck a few Island oysters ’round the fire as you sip a local craft brew! Order as many as you want from Raspberry Point Oyster Co and they will even deliver them right to you… oyster knife and mignonette included!
Take in the red sands and glimmering waves
With more than 800km of beaches along our shoreline, you can have the views to yourself! Stretch out and revel in relaxation where the ocean meets the sandy shore. The hardest part of your day might be deciding which beach is right for you! From the North Cape Coastal Drive’s iconic cliffs to the 50 beaches along the Points East Coastal Drive, and the classic summertime joy in Central Coastal PEI, you’re sure to find the perfect patch of sand to lay a towel and soak up the summer sun.
Why play a course when you can play an entire Island?
With 405 fairways that range from descending hills with coastal views to forested corridors hugged by sparkling lakes, it’s easy to understand what attracts pros and amateur golfers to the Island. Stay on-site and in style at golf resort destinations like Mill River, The Gables of PEI, or the Rodd Crowbush Beach & Golf Resort, where distancing on the golf course never looked so good!
Experience the Island
There are plenty of attractions to level-up your PEI stay. Whether you’re battling your family and friends at the Cavendish Beach Adventure Zone, paddling into paradise on a guided kayak tour, or taking in the exceptional music at the Confederation Centre of the Arts, Trailside Music Hall, or the Stompin’ Tom Centre, there is something to enjoy for all members of your group.
With all this fun you’ll be working up an appetite for the bounty of Island flavours to savour. Fresh PEI lobster, locally grown veggies, the tastiest ice cream, and so much more. Dining in PEI is an experience unlike any other!
With the season just around the corner, we are over the moon about welcoming you back to the Island for another PEI summer! So, to all you family vacationers and romantic excursionists, seasonal residents and solo-adventurers, and of course, to all our fellow Islanders – let’s make this summer the best one yet!
