Canada has the world’s longest coastline and plenty of islands to visit along it. The islands have lots to offer for nearly every type of traveler, with everything from abundant wildlife and secluded beaches to outdoor adventures and fascinating history to explore.
Prince Edward Island
Prince Edward Island is the only province of Canada to have no land boundary. One of Canada’s older settlements, PEI still reflects the country’s heritage, with Celtic, Anglo-Saxon, and French descendants comprising a large part of the 153,244 people that live there.
There are plenty of other ways to enjoy this maritime province though. Its slow-paced way of life is conducive to a vacation full of wandering, perusing and relaxing amongst its towns, trails, and beaches. Prince Edward Island access is made easy by Confederation Bridge, which joins it to New Brunswick and mainland Canada and is the longest bridge in the world that crosses ice-covered water.
