The North Cape Coastal Drive's heritage is embedded in both the sea and in the soil, and our rich Acadian, Celtic, and Aboriginal cultures come to life across the patchwork of charming rural communities that make up the region. From our small halls to our city stages, we are a region who loves to share stories and entertain our visitors. So pack your camera, your dancing shoes, and your appetite, and come along for the ride.
Hike the land where the railway did once run and skim the surface of the ever-changing sea. You can embark on North Cape Coastal Drive adventures on your own or in the capable care of an outdoors expert.

The North Cape Coastal Drive is home to some of the most breath-taking vistas on Prince Edward Island – a picturesque place where rolling emerald hills give way to rugged red cliffs, and winding dirt roads lead to pristine sandy beaches. It is also home to the world-famous oysters that have earned us the title, The Canadian Oyster Coast.
