Connected to mainland Canada by the Confederation Bridge, Prince Edward Island is mostly low-lying, tree-covered land punctuated by rolling hills. There are a few barrier islands on the northern coast.

The island's coastline is indented by numerous bays, coves and small inlets. Beaches are plentiful, and they're often fronted by salt water marshes.

The red soil of Prince Edward Island is exposed (rather dramatically), along most of its beaches, and along the grassy sand dunes and low-level sandstone cliffs facing the Gulf of St. Lawrence.

The highest point is a hill near the southern coast named Glen Valley. It stands at 142 m (466 ft.)

There are dozens of very small rivers on the island but none of them are large enough to really be classified as same. Most are streams that flow into estuaries. There are no large lakes.
