Central Coastal Drive
Distance: 253 km
Looping the province’s central region, the 253-kilometre Central Coastal Drive highlights two distinct shores. The southern Red Sands Shore portion of the Drive runs along Northumberland Strait, where sandstone cliffs and gentle beaches are the rich Island-red shade that contrasts perfectly with green pastures. Gateway Village at the foot of the Confederation Bridge, Victoria-by-the-Sea and Port-La-Joye–Fort Amherst National Historic Site are highlights in Red Sands Shore. Some of the Island’s most picturesque sea views are found in Green Gables Shore, along the northern portion of the Central Coastal Drive. Beyond the obvious wealth of sites related to Anne of Green Gables, the area is home to the popular beaches and trails of PEI National Park, amusement parks for the family and no fewer than 10 golf courses!
