How does the water temperature of the North and South Shores compare?

Water temperature differs depending on where you are staying along either shore. Bodies of open water on the North Shore are cooler than open water on the South Shore; the Gulf of St. Lawrence, located on the North Shore, is a much larger body of water than the Northumberland Strait on the South. Properties on a large river or inlet on either shore are comparable.

What is PEI’s weather like in the fall?

Globally, weather trends can be unpredictable, but the weather on PEI has been consistent with beautiful warm fall days and cool evenings. The fall is a prime time to take in some of the Island’s seasonal festivals and world-class golf courses. According to the provincial government’s website, fall temperatures can range from 8-22 degrees Celsius (46-71 degrees Fahrenheit).
