One of best things about Prince Edward Island is that you can take off for a super scenic drive at any point, while the weather is warm.
Doing the Eastern Bays Discovery Drive (Cardigan to Rollo Bay) as part of the East Coastal drive from Charlottetown to Souris was about 2 hours, when considering the photo stops along the way. The Souris, Fortune and Boughton Rivers have created a series of bays separating woodlands, farms and coastlines.
Built in 1880, Souris East Lighthouse is a wood-constructed tower on Knight Point overlooking the town of Souris. Visitors can climb to the lantern room, walk out to the balcony, and discover the panoramic seascape views of the harbour and town of Souris. The lighthouse also houses an interpretive centre with the history of sea glass, the lighthouse, the port, and the Town of Souris.
