A little more than 55 kilometers (34 miles) from Charlottetown is the Point Prim Lighthouse, Prince Edward’s oldest lighthouse, built in 1845. Make the 18-meter (60-foot) climb to its top for views of Northumberland Strait and Hillsborough Bay. About 69 kilometers (43 miles) from Charlottetown, Wood Islands Lighthouse, built in 1876, sits at the southernmost tip of Prince Edward Island. There are 54 steps to the top for a panoramic view, but take time before the climb to visit the interpretive center and its exhibits.
