The North Cape Coastal Drive is a smorgasbord of classic Island scenery, Acadian, Celtic and Aboriginal culture, small-hall to large-scale entertainment and classic Island delicacies, featuring of course, world-famous oysters which have earned us the nickname The Canadian Oyster Coast. Of course our heritage is embedded in both the sea and in the soil, the natural, authentic backdrop to best of rural Prince Edward Island. We are a constant contrast of nature and modernity: men toiling with work horses to harvest Irish moss; oyster-farming set against the backdrop of the oyster’s natural tidal habitat; and ocean panoramas which are our celebrities – so photogenic and beautiful that you can’t help but stare. And it all begins in the seaside City of Summerside.
