Whooshing Wind Turbines at the Wind Energy Interpretive Center at North Cape in Prince Edward Island National Park. Sunshine yet cool because of the winds Informative interpretive trail along the coast with details about the marsh and the local fishing industry. Erosion of Elephant Rock and the coastal cliffs. Fascinating!

Cape North is the north-western most point of land in Prince Edward Island, and if you're on the island it's worth the visit. Prince Edward Island is not large; so getting to Cape North isn't difficult and it is a very pleasant drive. Located near the town of Tignish, the cape boasts a lighthouse, a gift shop, a wind turbine... More

While this lighthouse is still in active use, its very ordinary. No great photo ops, the lighthouse is fenced off by a high chain link fence. There is a huge cell phone tower erected right next to it. Would be a great spot for night sky watchers, as no light pollution anywhere around. There is a restaurant and gift shop.... More

Great view from the Northwestern tip of PEI. Well worth it to get out of your car and head down towards the water. On the way back, be sure to drive through Alberton!

We went on a rainy day, so the view wasn't the best but it was great to have stopped here ! This place is known for the Wind Energy Institute.. at this location there is also... More

We were staying in Tignish and it had rained so we decided to drive to the North Cape. We spent two hours walking the Black Marsh Trail that is right beside the North Cape Lighthouse. The informative plaques on the trails and the easy walk made it a perfect day. We walked along side the eroding coast and listened to... More

​Very scenic place and easy to navigate by foot. Warm water in the summer, beach area is a bit rocky. Cairns (rock piles) left by locals and visitors add charm to the place. The most scenic spot would be at the back of the lighthouse, offering panoramic views of the lighthouse, the nearby wind farm, and spectacular bluffs touching the... More

Take the time to visit. The light house and the windmills are an "AWE" moment. Very impressive site. The trail is one of the best and the walk along the water is breathtaking. There is a gift shop,restaurant and a museum to enjoy.
