Island Geography

The geography of Prince Edward Island reflects the province’s overall uniqueness with beautiful rolling hills, pristine forests and amazing beaches. The coastline is indented by numerous bays, coves, and small inlets where you can often see the red sandstone cliffs that are a hallmark of Island scenery.

The Island is 5,620 km2 (2,170 sq mi) in size, making it the 104th largest island in the world. It is 224 km long and between 6 km and 64 km wide. With over 1,100 km of shoreline, you're never more than 15 minutes from the beach.

The highest point in the province is found on the southern coast and stands at 142 m (466 ft) above sea level.
