Prince Edward Island - a golf paradise and more!
Prince Edward Island is Canada's smallest and greenest province. Cradled on the waves of the Gulf of St. Lawrence, the Island is known for the vivid colours of its gently rolling landscape, surrounded by miles of sandy beaches and red sandstone cliffs. It's sized just right for touring!
This beautiful Island destination is made for relaxing beach vacations, but it's also wonderful for bicycling, hiking, kayaking, fishing, birding, cultural experiences, dining delights and of course, magnificent golfing opportunities.

PEI is the perfect golf destination with over thirty golf courses – including ten within Canada’s top 100. The Third Annual Couples Golf Tournament will be held July 10-14, 2011 promising five days and four nights of world-class golf, out-of-this-world dining, unique Island Experiences, and a vacation that you’ll both remember for a lifetime.
And after a round of golf, what better than to sample the wonderful cuisine of the island? PEI is a culinary dream come true with flourishing gourmet restaurants and distilleries. Experience mouth watering food first hand with authentic PEI culinary experiences. For instance - choose and cook your own lobster, or kayak to gather clams and then enjoy clam chowder on the beach. Tour the “PEI Flavours Culinary Trail” - your guide to some of the Island's most unique and exciting culinary attractions.
There are two exciting food festivals - the “PEI International Shellfish Festival” September 17-19, 2011 and the Prince Edward Island “Fall Flavours” September 03-30, 2011 which will feature over 250 culinary and cultural events taking place in communities across Prince Edward Island. The event is hosted by Chef Michael Smith, an Island original and host of Food Network’s series “Chef Abroad”.
Festivals abound throughout PEI! Celebrate PEI traditions at "Island Fusion" which kicks off on June 16, 2011 and runs through July 03, 2011. All over the Island, musicians, dancers, storytellers, actors, and artisans will demonstrate their gifts and bring to life the rich culture that took root here long ago - and continues to flourish on Prince Edward Island.
Highlights include the Rollo Bay Bluegrass Festival, Summerside Highland Gathering, PEI Fiddle Camp, Sunday Night Shenanigans, the Victoria Playhouse Festival, the Scotchfort Pow Wow, Canada Day festivities, and College of Piping Ceilidhs. Studio tours feature hands - on arts & crafts workshops and don’t miss a brand new show “Come-all-ye!”
The 3rd annual "Cavendish Beach Music Festival" is being held in July 7 - 10, 2011. Big headliners like Toby Keith, Brad Paisley, Johnny Reid and Trace Adkins will entertain large crowds.
Of course for many, PEI is still the setting for Lucy Maud Montgomery's treasured novel, Anne of Green Gables - whose much beloved character gives readers a small, exquisite taste of an Island life that can be savoured first-hand by visitors.
