Have you ever felt like your vacation was taken over by the kids or someone else’s agenda? On Prince Edward Island, you can have an amazing time making memories together and carve out some space for yourself.
Timing is key! Book a day of relaxation at the end of your vacation to ensure that you return home refreshed. Or better yet, book two days. One in the beginning, to accelerate your transition to vacation mode and another at the end to reflect and savour the feeling of peacefulness for just a few more hours.
Here are Prince Edward Island’s top spa and wellness destinations by region:
