Prince Edward Island is one of four Atlantic provinces located on Canada's east coast. The Island is crescent-shaped and resembles a cradle, thus the Mi'kmaq name of Abegweit, which means "the land cradled on the waves." Our rich culture and heritage offer much to be seen and explored and our warm hospitality sets us apart.
The green pastoral landscape and water views make our Island way of life unique. They also allow us to produce some of the tastiest food experiences found globally. And our miles of sandy beaches are some of the best in the world.
