Points East Coastal Drive

Cultural experiences and activities are abundant in eastern PEI.

The eastern end of the Island offers its own brand of “Down East” culture and experiences that include theatre, Ceilidhs, artisans, museums, six lighthouses open to the public, and over "50 Phenomenal Beaches". Here, you can also explore the history of the Island’s vanished railway, bike the Confederation Trail, fish for giant Bluefin tuna or learn how to dig bar clams or tong for oysters. Experience artisans and craftspersons at work in beautiful coastal towns. If you plan to take the ferry from Nova Scotia to PEI, the Points East Coastal Drive is where you’ll arrive.

Pastimes PEI Rug Hooking & Wool Shop

Charming traditional hooked rugs for collectors and hand drawn patterns for rug hookers are the specialties of the Tweedy sisters whose ancestors came to PEI as early settlers. From their home studio, they create traditional geometric patterns and original PEI landscapes and seascapes, large and small, for floors and walls. We offer rug-hooking supplies, wool fabric, yarn, and plenty of Island hospitality.
