Introduction to the Atlantic Coast
Canada's Atlantic Coast contains the Maritime Provinces of Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island and New Brunswick, which together were founded as New Caledona in 1621. The sea is always present in these beautiful locations which offer the visitor many historic towns and country sights.

Prince Edward Island is Canada's smallest province and one of the last to join the new country of Canada. Famous as a tourist destination it offers many golf courses, lush farmlands and a sandy coast. It also has the highest ratio of Scots of any Canadian province at 37%.
