Highly recommended to visit it! Drive from Halifax or Darmouth to Digby, take the ferry across the Bay of Fundy and drive to PEI. Don't miss Brier Island for whale watching tours!

Located on the peninsula jutting into the Gulf of St Lawrence above Greenwich and comprised of an interesting parabolic (rare, U-shaped) dune system, this modest section of the larger PEI National Park is well worth a visit. Visitors can choose between three hikes (along well...More

Rent a car. There is no specific "place" that an Uber can drop you and with $CN, cars are cheap. Put on a good credit card and don't get CDW. For one day, might cost you $70CN.
