Before you even arrive, you’re already our friend. That’s just how we roll Up West, where there’s always a pot of tea on the go, a story to share, and no one’s in a hurry. You’ll find unwinding comes easy, especially if you stay awhile. Relax at a family resort with world-class golfing, spa services, and an aquaplex. Or find a secluded cottage by the ocean and do absolutely nothing. Trust us, you won’t miss your cell phone.

Find Something Delicious
From paper plates to world-class dining
Known as The Canadian Oyster Coast, shucking and slurping are a way of life in Western PEI. Here, we prefer platters over pretense. Fresh, salty, and full of personality, you’ll quickly discover why Malpeque oysters are world-renowned. And be sure you find time to savour the other tastes of the West – potato fudge, Acadian tourtieres, craft beer down a red dirt lane, deep-fried clams, bannock cooked in the sand, and more.
Plan Your Trip Up West
Buckle up and get ready to explore new frontiers. Here on the west side of the Island, every day offers grand adventures. Pump the Stompin’ Tom tunes as you drive along the stunning coast from West Point to North Cape. Scan the waters for phantom ships as you explore The Island Walk. Discover how it all goes down when a tiny village hosts a giant music festival.
Our region covers the whole western part of the Island and is home to PEI’s second largest city, Summerside. The city is just 20 minutes away from the Confederation Bridge, making it a starting point for your next Island getaway.

Make the Most of your Day
Beach goats that surf. Historic lighthouses and jaw-dropping lore. Houses made of glass bottles. Soaring windmills that carry the ocean breeze. Alpaca smiles and soft sweaters. Quill work by the Mi’kmaq. While you may not find actual nuggets of gold in the North Cape region, we can promise you’ll unearth plenty of treasures. And you don’t even need a shovel. Unless you’re digging for clams, of course.
