Summerside is the perfect central location to start your exploration of the island and it’s only 28km from the Confederation Bridge, the ‘fixed link’ engineering marvel connecting PEI to the mainland.

Summerside offers big city amenities in a compact space, with a lively harbour and boardwalk, restaurants, entertainment, historic locations, cultural centres and festivals throughout the summer season.

It’s a gateway to the western end of the island and a quintessential stop on the North Cape Coastal Drive, which invites you to explore picturesque fishing villages and a visit to Malpeque Bay, the home breeding ground for the famous PEI Malpeque Oyster.
