Once you’ve picked a hotel, start planning some unique things to do with our P.E.I. activity guide.

Prince Edward Island things to do
Go to the beach. With so many stunning beaches, you’ll want to make sure you set aside some time each day to explore the waterfront. Ride bikes along the waterfront paths in Victoria Park, or hike the dunes at Greenwich Beach. Grab some fresh, locally caught seafood for lunch while you’re there!
Hit the spa. Visit the only Nordic spa in Prince Edward Island, Mysa Nordic Spa, where you can relax in their hot pools, sauna, steam room and cold plunge pool. Make a trip of it and stay in one of their onsite cabins, catch the sunset from the hot tub and enjoy locally-inspired meals at their on-site restaurant.
Eat at Blue Mussel Cafe. The top recommended restaurant in P.E.I., their twist on a classic clam chowder is a must-try, and they have the freshest sea-to-table oysters and mussels. We totally get why everyone says you have to eat here!

Getting to your Prince Edward Island hotel
Prince Edward Island is such a small island there are only 100 taxis for the whole island. Besides that, we hate waiting in rental car line-ups at the airport, so we always suggest booking a ride with Turo whenever possible. Turo is a car sharing app where you can book a car from a community of hosts around Canada, U.S.A., the U.K. and Australia.
Unlike traditional car rentals, with Turo you can select the vehicle make and model that is best for your needs.There is a huge selection of unique cars from Toyota’s to Tesla’s, and as new hosts join the options continue to grow. You can also choose whether you want to pick up the car or have it dropped off. We had our host drop the car off at the airport so once we had our baggage we were able to hit the road!
Prince Edward Island hotels are so unique, and the east coast hospitality is one to rival. We had so much fun on our visit to Prince Edward Island this summer, and we can’t wait for our next visit!
