Prince County is the province’s westernmost region, with the Confederation Trail, Cabot Beach and Cedar Dunes Provincial Parks, and Northport and Tignish, two of PEI’s deep-sea fishing hotspots, within its premises.
Home to Malpeque Bay, visitors to the region can feast on oysters and other fresh sea fare at restaurants and pubs scattered throughout the county, while an array of culinary events—including the Clammin’ N Jammin’ Festival, Tyne Valley Oyster Festival, and the Summerside Lobster Carnival—entertain hungry patrons! While in the area, be sure to check out Kensington’s Indian River Festival Fine Music Series and catch Aboriginal Mi’kmaq drummers in action. Shop for unique arts crafted by local artisans, such as ash splint basket weaving from Richmond’s Island Traditions Store.
Home to natural, outdoor, and cultural attractions, Prince County is a popular region to rent a cottage on Prince Edward Island.+ More
