Truth be told, Canada’s smallest province has a multitude of seafood-centric towns known for their shellfish, especially oysters. But Charlottetown, the largest city and provincial capital is where it all comes to a head. No oyster bay is more than a 90 minutes away in any direction. Compare the many oyster varieties: Malpeques, North Points, Raspberry Points, Summersides and more. Many an oyster fanatic calls the briny, nutty and sweet Colville Bay oysters the best; go to the source on the Island’s southeast shore. Charlottetown’s PEI Shellfish Festival takes place in September, where you’ll be in the company of celeb Food Network chef and proud Islander Michael Smith.
