Learn More About Murray Harbour, Prince Edward Island

Murray Harbour (2011 pop.: 320) is a municipality that holds rural municipality status in Prince Edward Island, Canada. It is located in southeastern Kings County.
Located in the township of Lot 64, the community is named after General the Honourable James Murray, (1721–94), Governor of Quebec (1764–66).

With an area of 4.1 km2 and an extensive waterfront facing a large natural harbour (also named Murray Harbour), the community's primary industry is fishing, most notably lobster and scallops. It also hosts some secondary industry in the form of fish processing and a growing tertiary service economy centred on tourism.
The community has a car repair station, a fire station, a grocery, 2 restaurants, a number of churches, a marina and a number of wharves. The Community Centre hosts many events throughout the year, including plays, music and comedy shows - including Small Halls Festival - ceilidhs, suppers, painting classes, seniors' events and more. Behind the Community Centre is a large double dog park and an outdoor rink/ball hockey rink. Soon (summer 2017), a huge playground (for ages 5 to 13) and a skate park will be added.
The majority of the community's fishing fleet is berthed at the South River Harbour facility which is operated by Fisheries and Oceans Canada. Other wharves include the Murray Harbour wharf, Machon Point wharf, and Beach Point wharf, as well as the Bowridge Landing Marina.
In recent years, Murray Harbour has attracted a large number of retirees. The climate is a maritime one with only two or three months of cool/cold weather. The summers are very pleasant and there is a very active arts and social events community.
