Morell Travel Guide

Morell is a Candian village located two kilometres inland from St. Peter's Bay, a sub-basin of the Gulf of St. Lawrence. It is a warm-hearted and attractive village located in Kings County in eastern Prince Edward Island, Canada, just east of Bristol.

The local economy is centred on farming (wild blueberry farms), fishing (Lobster), aquaculture (Mussels), and tourism. Most of the area residents are of Scottish, English, Irish, or French descent. The first inhabitants of the community of Morell were Maritime Archaeic Indians followed by the Mi'kmaq Nation. The Morell River was known to the Mi'kmaq as “clam ground river”. The community was named for Jean Francois Morel who settled in the area in 1720-21 having arrived from St. Malo, France. Attractions include an annual strawberry festival in July, and the nearby Crowbush Golf & Beach Resort, the only five-star resort in Atlantic Canada.
