Malpeque Bay

Famous the world over for its delicious Oysters, thought to be the finest in the world, Malpeque Bay`s name is derived from the Mik`maq word meaning "big bay". Cutting deeply into Prince County, Malpeque Bay helps to form with Bedeque Bay the narrowest isthmus of land on P.E.I. A land of captivating beauty, the Malpeque region is a splendid area of secluded beaches backdropped by the gentle waters of the bay. Cabot Beach Provincial Park provides a lovely picnic area for visitors while the beautifully restored St. Mary`s Church in Indian River offers various classical music concerts as well as the Indian River Festival, held annually during mid-summer.

Malpeque Bay is part of the Green Gables Shore Touring Region.
