This photo taken from the deck of the Point Prim Chowder House, a famous seafood restaurant next to the oldest lighthouse (1845) on PEI, this is a well known place for the spectacular sunsets and it is recommended you go, if for no other reasons but to see the Sun setting into the Strait of Northumberland. It is only 30 minutes down the road from Charlottetown, so stay for dinner at the Point Prim Chowder House, the food is the best and highly recommended.  http://www.chowderhousepei.com, they are open from Noon Time to 8pm so you can have lunch or dinner, half of the restaurant’s tables is on the deck facing the Hillsborough Bay. You need reservations to dine here, usually 24 to 48 hours notice. I was told that the Steamer Pot on the menu is highly recommended, it is composed of  jumbo crab legs, quahogs, mussels, and fresh fish steamed in a ratatouille stew. They also have a lot of daily specials, fish and lobster. The restaurant is only open from June to end September being exposed to the sea it would be too rough and cold in winter.


Church at Point Prim, typical Island architecture for a church not made of red sandstone, the steeple is always two tones in colour, making it distinctive.

Point Prim is truly a magical place, so quiet and rugged, you just don’t want to leave.
