Here, every day brings a chance to walk hand in hand along miles and miles of sandy coastline, enjoying magical stretches of white, champagne, pink and red beaches. Every day brings a chance to dip your toe into the warmest ocean waters north of Virginia. And every evening offers the opportunity to savor the most amazing sunset you have ever seen; among the most memorable you are very likely to see, iridescent as it shimmers, dances and plays on the water before the sun settles itself, sinking below the horizon. Listen closely and you will swear you can almost hear the sizzle as it hits.
A beach vacation on Prince Edward Island consistently and effortlessly delivers on its promise of a sojourn imbued with relaxation and refreshment along the way. There’s nothing like watching the fishing boats off in the distance as the waves of the Atlantic lap at your feet as sea birds fly high overhead, soaring to the top of the red cliffs above, or diving down into the fresh ocean water and the bounty it offers.
For the more adventurous, inquisitive and active traveler, a guided tour may well be the perfect introduction to your relaxing Island beach vacation. It offers a chance to learn about the geology, flora and fauna in the area, and who better to learn from than an area native. Prince Edward Island may well be Canada’s smallest province, but it is big on being the perfect respite for your soul. No need for chicken soup when you can have clam chowder and seafood, freshly caught from the ocean every day. Clam chowder made that much more hearty with an abundance of PEI potatoes in your bowl and cream or milk fresh from the myriad farms to be found on the island.
