This camera-ready combination of patchwork fields, sandy beaches and beautiful coastline is renowned for its hospitality and warm summers, the island was perhaps made most famous by Lucy Maud Montgomery’s book Anne of Green Gables. The lush foliage and charming small towns all add to the relaxed atmosphere of the ‘Gentle Island’, a place where the pace of life reflects its easy natural beauty. Perfect for walking and cycling, with gently sloping hills making it easy to explore, there’s also kayaking, fishing and plenty more to keep you busy.
