You go here because it is here. The northwestern most tip of PEI. There is a lighthouse, a restaurant, a beach covered with inukshuk, a gift shop and a wind museum. But mostly it is the northwest tip of PEI.

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.

I really enjoy going to North Cape and seeing the view from this area that includes a Lighthouse. You can walk out to an island if the tide is down and if you are really lucky you can see seals. It was my second time...More
