Pelee Island

A vacation on Pelee Island allows you to get away from it all as well as to satisfy your appetite for adventure in beautiful natural surroundings.
Start off your visit on the 22nd (Thu): stroll through Fish Point Nature Reserve, then learn about winemaking at Pelee Island Pavilion, and then tour the pleasant surroundings at Lighthouse Point Provincial Nature Reserve.

Plan my Pelee Island trip by asking Inspirock to come up with tips and suggestions.
