Prince Edward Island is the Birthplace of Confederation - Canada was born here. PEI was approved as the colony's name, in honour of Prince Edward, the Duke of Kent.
Contrasting view of PEI's rich rolling farmland and the Confederation Bridge linking the island to New Brunswick.
Prince Edward Island is meant to be enjoyed. No need to rush. It is scenic, compact and uncrowded. PEI is the most relaxed place in North America.
Cavendish Beach. Just one of many beautiful beaches on Prince Edward Island. The Island shoreline is made up mainly of fragile coastal dunes, beautiful pristine and red sandstone cliffs. The roots of marram grass helps hold the delicate dunes in place.
Near Cavendish, Lucy Maud Montgomery wrote her famous first novel about a feisty, red-haired orphan. Anne of Green Gables has taken on a life of her own, and her vivid imagination and romantic attutude appeal to fans around the world. "Anne of Green Gables" still lives on the island in her beloved "Avonlea" (Cavendish).
