Scenic Drives on Prince Edward Island

Scenic Drives on Prince Edward Island

The petite and predominantly rural Prince Edward Island—the smallest of Canada’s Maritime provinces—is prime road-trip territory, with epic coastal scenery, quaint seaside villages, and fertile farmland dotted with pretty gabled homesteads. Here are a few of PEI’s best driving routes.

Points East Coastal Drive

Weaving along the island’s easternmost reaches for a distance of 295 miles (475 kilometers), the Points East Coastal Drive is a voyage of coastal discovery. The route hugs the Atlantic, passing beautiful beaches and dunes, as well as historic lighthouses. It also encompasses the Greenwich Peninsula, part of PEI National Park, which is crisscrossed with walking trails.

Central Coastal Drive

Easily accessible from both Charlottetown and the Confederation Bridge, the 157-mile (253-kilometer) Central Coastal Drive encompasses two distinct shorelines: the northern Green Gables Shore and the southern Red Sands Shore. The northern shore, home to PEI National Park, Cavendish, and a wealth of Anne of Green Gables attractions, is the better known of the two, but the sleepier southern shore’s sandstone cliffs and rust-red sand beaches are also worth exploring.

North Cape Coastal Drive

In addition to promising the coastal panoramas so typical of Canada’s east coast—think spacious sandy beaches and high cliffs fronted by the blue Atlantic—the 217-mile (350-kilometer) west-coast route also highlights PEI’s cultural heritage. Native Mi’kmaq and Acadian communities live side by side here, and dotted along the route you will find several quirkier attractions, including a museum devoted to the PEI potato, and a collection of houses made entirely from bottles.
