Coastal Drives

Touring Prince Edward Island’s three scenic coastal drives is a perfect way to explore the Island off the beaten track. See some of the more than 45 harbours scattered throughout our jagged coastline. Visit colourful fishing villages, lighthouses and antique shops. Stop for lunch at one of the many restaurants serving the freshest of Island cuisine. All the while, enjoy the scenery of the Island’s spectacular coastline — sandstone cliffs, beaches and rolling countryside. There are coastal drives that tour eastern, western and central parts of the province. Since they range from 250 to 475 kilometres each, you’ll likely want to do just a section so you have plenty of time to explore.

Stratford. Because of the Island’s irregular shape and countless bays and inlets, a trip along our coast delivers new vistas at every turn. Touring our coastal drives is the perfect way to explore the Island’s diverse landscape and history.
