Alberton & Northport


The Town of Alberton is located in Prince County on the northwest shore of the Island. It was incorporated in 1913 and has a population of just over 1,100 people. Alberton is known as the Heart of West Prince and has all the services a traveller may require including a 22-unit motel. In 1878 the Alberton Court House was built, which is now home to the Alberton Museum and Genealogy Centre. The building is a National Historic site and a Designated Provincial Historic site.

The town of Alberton proudly displays its past through a series of murals depicting business, culture and events that have kept this fishing/farming/business community pulsating for more than a century.

Just minutes from Alberton visitors will find the thriving fishing wharf at Northport Harbour. Northport is a lively place for tourists with a waterside hotel, restaurant, marina and gift shop. Watch for the amazing sight of a Giant Bluefin tuna being landed at the dock in season.

Alberton and Northport are located in the North Cape Coastal Drive region.

The PEI Chief Public Health Office in consultation with the provincial and federal governments will determine when it's safe to come visit the Island. See current travel restrictions.
