Various Scenic Pictures of Prince Edward Island

Prince Edward Island Visitor's Guide: North Cape Coastal Drive

Red sandstone cliffs formed by wind and water, gleaming white lighthouses against brilliant sunsets, scenes of Islanders busy plying their trades on the land and sea, these are images familiar to travellers in the North Cape Coastal Drive region, the Island's most westerly region.

Touring this region will yield unexpected encounter with potatoes in museums, seaweed in pies and giant windmills turning gracefully at the province's tip. The city of Summerside forms the urban anchor to this region of the Island, an area rich with history and culture.

A tour through the region provides encounters with the province's primary cultural groups - beginning with the native Mi'kmaq at Lennox Island and continuing through the centre of Acadian culture, La Region Evangeline, and of course including the predominant Celtic heritage presented in a lively fashion at the Canadian College of Piping and Celtic Performing Arts in Summerside.
