Looping the province's central region, the 253-kilometre Central Coastal Drive highlights two distinct shores. MORE INFORMATION >>
Green Gables Shore - While Anne may be the principal attraction for many, Green Gables Shore has more beauty and mystique up its sleeve. The region is a spectacular piece of the Island's acclaimed scenic landscape, composed of red sandstone cliffs, white sand beaches and rolling farm fields. Some of the classic coastline has been protected in PEI National Park, which hugs the north shore in this area. Cavendish Grove is a lovely recent addition to the Park, featuring walking trails, picnic grounds and a stand of sugar maples.
Red Sands Shore - There is a warmth that envelopes you here, and it's embodied by the colour red: the red sand beaches that await your footprints and castles, the red jutting cliffs that will both impress and humble you and the red clay roads that disappear over hills and beckon you to follow. These are Mother Nature's imprints on Red Sands Shore.
Don’t miss the rare dune system at Greenwich or the bayside community of St. Peters. This is the land of breathtaking beaches, lively ceilidhs and lighthouses. Watch for eagles and seals, and if you can fit it in–scenic Montague, the winery at Little Sands and Orwell Corner Historic Village. MORE INFORMATION >>
