Close to our cottage we walked it every night and visited for a whole day as well. Lots of room for privacy and sandbars to put your chairs. Protected from the wind on cool days in late August.

Although it was cool and damp the day we visited North Rustico Beach, we enjoyed the warm sand, and fresh breeze coming in from the Gulf of St. Lawrence

Nice beach to take long walks on and see the sights. Great little shops and marina to check out. You can find used lobster traps for $10 around here.

Great Beach... you don't have to be in the park and nice restaurant and souvenir shop are close by! Good beach for walking, and you can watch the fishing boats coming and going from the port.

We always enjoy coming to this beach while vacationing in PEI. It is not as crowded as Cavendish and my boys enjoy beach combing for seashells and rocks.

Enjoyed this pretty little town and our walk along along the harbor. The boardwalk path has great views of the harbor and shore. Worth a stop.
