It is only 3 minutes to a local grass airstrip and 45 minutes to Charlottetown and the regional airport(http://www.flypei.com/), the ease of access is evident. The Confederation Bridge (http://www.confederationbridge.com/)and Northumberland Ferry (https://www.ferries.ca/ns-pei-ferry/) are also ways to get to Prince Edward Island by car.
Although your PEI vacation location is in the eastern end of the island, which is considered rural Prince Edward Island, you are still close to amenities such as grocery stores, hospital, craft shops, and restaurants. Charlottetown, the capital of PEI is only 45 minutes from the beach house. You will enjoy the nearby cuisine, culture and shopping in some of the quaintest communities in Prince Edward Island. Located along the Points East Coastal Drive, there are hundreds of places to explore!
If you are a golfer then you will think you’ve struck it rich…. There are 26 golf courses on the island and some of the finest in Canada. The Links at Crowbush Cove, Dundarave and Brudenell River - are a popular draw for both national & international visitors. Crowbush is only 15 minutes from the beach house.
Besides the beautiful beach out your door, Greenwich National Park beach is moments away. The Basin Head "Singing Sands" beach is only 25 minutes away and listed as the #1 beach in Canada and #2 in North America. It is called the “singing sands” for a reason… as you walk on the sands you will hear it sing. Also, it is a popular spot for the visitors and locals to swim and jump off the bridge to let the tides take you out to the sandbar. Not counting Greenwich and Basin Head beach there are 50 other beautiful beaches to explore in eastern PEI...Maybe you just want to jog or walk on the extensive golden mile beach out your door.
If you like to explore and keep busy there are all kinds of things to see and do on the island. The island is known for the lighthouse landmarks and 30 minutes away you can climb to the top of the East Point Lighthouse to see the breathtaking vista of the island. It is also where the tides of the Norththumberland Strait and the Gulf of St. Lawrence meet, in a storm it is impressive with the action of the waves and surf that spin off then crashing together.
Are you a biker, walker or jogger then the nearby Confederation Trail is what you should experience. Not far from the cottage is the most scenic section of the Confederation Trail, which is a biking and walking trail that goes from one end of the island to the other. The Elmira Train Station Museum is where the end of the line is located. It is where the train of PEI ended before the tracks were picked up and the walking biking trail was made for everyone to enjoy. This is located before East Point.
Island cuisine is a must when you come to the island considering we have such fresh seafood, not to mention the fresh beef and vegetables that you’ll find at the Farmers Markets or the roadside vegetable stands. If you come in May and June you can taste the fresh lobsters that you can find at any wharf during the season. Red Head and Naufrague Harbours are very close to the beach house. After the season closes the lobster can be found at the nearby St. Peters Bay fish market.
During your stay at this PEI Beach House you will experience breathtaking sunrises and sunsets …
Deep-Sea fishing and tuna charters can be found at North Lake, which is considered the "Tuna Capital of the World." Other harbours offer these experiences as well. If you are interested in doing some trout fishing contact www.ontheflypei.ca for a personalized fishing experience.
