Prince Edward Island Warnings and Dangers

  • Careful When Renting A Private House in...

    If you are thinking about renting a private home/cottage in PEI - be careful. We rented two this summer (one from a local) who was fabulous and the house was fabulous.And one from an owner based in Montreal - who mislead us on his property - particularly the beach on the property (we emailed back and forth to confirm details because his pictures...

  • Mostly harmless

    Generally a very safe place, however, a few cautions:1) no you can't leave your car unlocked even if it seems to be a deserted rural area - locals are just waiting to see some dumb tourist walk off and leave a bunch of expensive cameras or cash in their car2) if you buy a cottage, count on it being broken into and robbed over the winter - eg....

  • Beach safety

    At many of the beaches, there are sand dunes, but don't walk on them. They are created by a natural process, and stepping on them destroys them. Also, some endangered birds lay their eggs in the dunes so you don't want to crush the eggs. And don't pick the maraam grass on the dunes - the grass is what anchors them and keeps them from being blown...

  • Coyote's will attack

    My Rottie/Pit got attacted in our yard. We have 2 boy's 9 & 6 thank god they were not out at the time. The Coyotes are comming in our yard at night, but this was at about 9 a.m. Our poor dog was bet up bad, no stiches, but his face was tore, and he has 2 puncture marks in his neck. (I never thought they would go after a big dog) He saved our boys...

  • PEI highway traffic

    Traffic isn't very bad, but here are a few things you might want to watch out for on the highways:-If you see a vehicle moving slowly with an orange triangle sign on the back, it will NOT speed up no matter how many times you honk at it (the orange triangle indicates that it is a slow-moving vehicle). Most of these are farm tractors. Just pass it...

  • Winter

    In winter (especially after Christmas), PEI is completely dead. The weather is snowy and cold, and many shops and restaurants are closed until summer. It gets boring, and I always anticipate the summer - that's when the province comes alive. If you're planning a trip to PEI, don't come in the middle of winter - you'll get bored out of your mind...

  • Do never attempt to climb the coastal...

    Prince Edward Island cliffs appear to be easy to climb but they might transform into deadly traps! Me and my brother-in-law decided to climb one to work as a shortcut to above. We soon regretted our foolish mistake- not far from the top, we discover that the rock (clay) is not very solid to grip on. Pieces of rock start rolling down from the places...

  • PEI Foxes

    There is an abundance of foxes on PEI .In the early 1900 there were fox farms on the island . The industry no longer exists but this was probably the source of the foxes that now populate teh island .They are quite bold and one even came onto our deck while we were using teh BBQ.

  • Slow moving farm machinery...

    If you happen to be driving around PEI, be careful of all the tractors and other farm machinery using the roads... A "traffic" jam can often occur in the middle of nowhere simply because the road isn't wide enough for cars to pass a combine or tractor towing a plow.....reminds me of back home in Indiana....

  • One thing to be careful of on...

    One thing to be careful of on the island, especially in park and wooded areas, is the presence of wild animals. They aren't present in the city areas, but if you're out in the country then beware of deer, foxes, wild rabbits (not really a threat but they are quite common!) and most importantly the coyote. The coyotes on the island are starting to...
