Victoria by the Sea

The lovely Victoria by the Sea, a picturesque fishing village on the southern shore is only 4 minutes away by car.

Victoria by the Sea has many things to see and do, and the protected warm waters make it the perfect place for coastal exploring. The best way to take in this charming village is by meandering your way along the historic tree-lined streets, where you’ll discover:

  • Palmers Range Light: A trademark red and white lighthouse, which houses the Victoria Seaport Museum and the Keepers of the Light exhibit.
  • Victoria Playhouse: PEI’s longest running little theatre is housed within the Victoria Community Hall. It dates back to 1915 and has been a gathering place for entertainment and fun ever since. Offering up a series of plays, comedies, and concerts, this is a great way to spend a night in rural PEI.
  • By the Sea Kayaking: Rent a kayak or paddleboard and enjoy Victoria from the sea, or book an excursion with an experienced guide. All abilities are catered to.
  • Clam Digging: You can do as the locals do and join in on a clam-digging excursion. By the Sea Kayaking offers a Clam Digging Kayak Tour for a true Island experience. A guide will lead you to the Tryon Shoal during low tide where you’ll dig for the tasty molluscs before enjoying clam chowder cooked right on the beach.
  • Mike Stanley Pottery: Explore pottery inspired by the vibrant colours and gentle landscape of PEI with one of a kind red stoneware and porcelain pieces.
