Destination guide

Welcome to Prince Edward Island, the birthplace of Canada

Gracing Prince Edward Island's north shore on the Gulf of Saint Lawrence, the tiny town of Sea View offers just that -- more sea views than you could ever want. The sandy beaches and outdoor activities are rivaled only by some of the best seafood you've ever tasted in your life (mussels, anyone?). A Sea View vacation rental puts you in the heart of history, on the island where the country of Canada came into being in 1864. The rolling hills and windswept shores are also the home of Anne of Green Gables, one of the world's most adored literary figures.

Things to do

Delight your inner child in the home of Anne of Green Gables

Anne of Green Gables is beloved by millions around the world, and a Sea View vacation rental puts you in the heart of where it all began. There are plenty of sights related to the books scattered around the island, including a historic house, farm, and museum at Green Gables Heritage Place, set inside scenic Prince Edward Island National Park. For a taste of museums and historical sights, as well as galleries, performance venues, and festivals, explore the island's Arts and Heritage Trail. History buffs will want to head to Charlottetown's sights to learn how Canada became a country.

Activities

From the links to the seas, many options on one small island

Biking is one of the best ways to explore the island, and there are plenty of rental shops that will set you up. Set out for the sandy beaches and warm ocean waters where you can frolic in the waves, build a sandcastle, or wok on your tan. Venture into the water for some canoeing, kayaking, parasailing, and fishing, not to mention snorkeling and seal watching. Golf lovers will be in heaven with more than 25 courses on the island. Walk the boardwalks or pull up a blanket on the beach for some killer sunset views.

Weather

Enjoy the warmest waters north of the Carolinas

The sea rules the climate on Prince Edward Island, making the weather more moderate than you'll fine further inland. Even so, you'll want to pack layers when you're heading to your Sea View vacation rental, because the weather is known to vary widely from day to day. Temps from December to February are the coldest, dipping well below freezing, with plenty of snow and ice on the surface of the Gulf. Summers are significantly warmer, seeing highs in the 80s or even 90s from June to August. The sea waters are surprisingly warm given the northern latitude.

Natural features

Green gables, red cliffs, blue waters, and white sands

The name Sea View implies ocean, and Prince Edward Island doesn't disappoint. Nearly 7,000 miles of coastline are dotted with windswept beaches, red sandstone cliffs, and rolling dunes. The island's interiors feature rolling hills and wooded forests, home to red foxes, blue jays, and coyotes. Prince Edward Island National Park on the north shore has both freshwater wetlands and saltmarshes, and has been designated a Canadian Important Bird Area, home to some endangered species. Rich farmland produces plenty of vegetables, fruits, meat, and dairy products, while the waters produce seafood the island is so famous for.
