We stopped here on a cross country road trip and were impressed with the view and the friendly staff at the Interpretive Centre. We enjoyed the North Cape Coastal Drive and recommend it to anyone who enjoys good scenery.

I grew up on the island until I was about 11. I've made a few visits back since, I am now 25. I came here and was just in such awe of how beautiful I remember it all. Absolutely love coming here. So breath taking.

It is like the end of the world. The lighthouse is still working. There is an easy trail nearby. The view of the ocean is great.

Cape North is the north-western most point of land in Prince Edward Island, and if you're on the island it's worth the visit. Prince Edward Island is not large; so getting to Cape North isn't difficult and it is a very pleasant drive. Located near...More
