Getting There 

Several of the island's main roads, including Highways 1, 2, 3, and 4, connect Kings County with Charlottetown and the western flank of the island. So it's easy to get here; get out a map, plot a cool route, and point your car north and west. If you're coming from Nova Scotia, the Woods Island ferry docks up on the southern coast, though fewer and fewer travelers seem to take that route anymore.

Visitor Information 

There's a provincial Visitor Information Centre at 95 Main St. in Souris (which is also Route 2; tel. 902/687-7030), open daily from mid-June through mid-October. There's another VIC at the head of pretty St. Peters Bay, on Route 2 at the intersection of routes 313 and 16 (tel. 902/961-3540); this info center, which borders the lovely Confederation Trail, opens daily June through October.
