Seriously Sensational PEI Sunsets

If there’s one thing we can all agree on, it’s that life is beautiful in the glowing light of a PEI sunset. The land, the people and the sea are all bathed in artful colours each evening as the sun dips slowly into the sea. Catch a glimpse of an electric sky over hills and trees as you explore an old country road. Not pointing west? Watch as the reflection of the sun turns the entire sky into a hundred colours, from vibrant oranges and reds, to soft and soothing pinks and purples.


Wherever you are on this island, it’s hard not to stop and stare at the majestic beauty that fills the sky night after night after night. We think it’s time to pay tribute to these evening wonders! Get ready to lose yourself in these seriously sensational stunners. Maybe they’ll inspire you to seek out your own favourite places to see the sunset on PEI!
