Warm, sandy beach with great swimming

Crowded, vibrant - an upbeat place for a PEI summer visit. Have a swim, build a sand castle and have a stroll in the sunshine.

If you're not staying in the park and don't have a pass, this is the beach for you. Park near the wharf or on the street in North Rustico and take the short walk to the beach. Saves you the $19.40/day it costs to access the provincial park. This beach is clean and quiet. Water is shallow & cold like... More

Beautiful beach. The kids loved playing on the beach and walking along the water. There is an old pier that you can walk along. Very nice way to spend an afternoon.

Beautiful boardwalk along North Rustico's shore with great views of the town over the water. The boardwalk is in great condition and it was really lovely to see that various seats have been maintained in memorium of locals.

We enjoyed this beach a lot! We drove to N Rustico, walked the small boardwalk to the wharf, ate at the Blue Mussel, hit the souvenir shop and then walked a short distance to the beach. Clean, not very populated, bathroom. Lovely to sit and listen to the sound of the waves. Too many jellies to swim, but a lovely... More
