Prince Edward Island (or simply PEI or P.E.I.) is a Canadian province coextensive with the island of the same name. Known as the "Garden of the Gulf", the island is located in the Gulf of Saint Lawrence north of Nova Scotia and east of New Brunswick. It is part of the Maritimes and is one of the Atlantic Provinces.
It is the nation's smallest province in terms of land area. People from PEI are called Islanders and refer to people not from the island as being "from away." The island's namesake is Prince Edward Augustus, Duke of Kent (1767-1820), the father of Queen Victoria. The capital city is Charlottetown, situated centrally on the island's southern shore.
PEI is known for its beautiful sandy beaches all around the Island and is a popular destination for golf. The island's landscape is predominatly pastoral. Rolling hills, pristine forests, white sand beaches, ocean coves and the famous red dirt.
The beaches, dunes and sandstone cliffs consist of distinctive red sand, unique in the world to Prince Edward Island. The geological properties of the white silica sand found at Basin Head are unique in the province as well, and the grains cause a humming noise as they rub against each other when walked on.
The towns and villages resting between the two main cities of Charlottetown and Summerside proudly retain a slower-paced, old world flavor, something that factors heavily into Prince Edward Island's popularity as a destination for relaxation.
In 1997, the Confederation Bridge was opened, connecting Borden-Carleton to Cape Jourimain near Shediac, New Brunswick. The bridge replaced a ferry service operated by Marine Atlantic. ()
