Climb Point Prim — PEI's oldest lighthouse, built in 1846. You'll be rewarded with unimpeded views of Hillsborough Bay. Or head to Wood Islands, another historic lighthouse with an interactive museum that has 11 differently themed rooms. Wash the day down at the Rossignol Estate Winery for pairings of wild blueberry wine and PEI's best cheeses.
