Prince Edward Island - the gentle island
You only have to say one word for Prince Edward Island to pop to mind - Anne. The fictional red-haired girl of Green Gables put Canada's tiniest province on the world's tourism map decades ago. And the Island has stayed firmly in the minds of visitors because of its green rolling landscape, red sandstone cliffs and miles of sandy beaches. Whether you fancy music and history in Charlottetown or oysters from Malpeque Bay, Canada's 'gentle island' is just the right size for an unhurried tour.

Island Chocolates is located in an old general store and, with an ancient (display!) cash register filled with chocolate money, you'll instantly be transported back in time.
