Prince Edward Island National Park

Prince Edward Island

Imagine a more remote Acadia National Park, with oysters, not lobsters — that's Prince Edward Island. It's tiny — just 8.5 square miles of broad beaches, sandy dunes, freshwater wetlands, and salt marshes. Still, more than 30 miles of hiking and biking trails crisscross the remnants of an Acadian forest and coastal headlands past dramatic sandstone cliffs. Wildlife abounds, with 300 bird species and 400 varieties of plants, as well as coyotes, foxes, raccoons, beavers, and mink.

Getting There

Fly to Charlottetown, then drive about 20 minutes.
