After labor day the park is free. There is a parking lot with washrooms and a bathhouse. From there you reach the beach by a path through the dunes. You... More

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 recently enjoyed this beach on our trip to PEI. It is less crowded than Cavendish Beach and it has beautiful sand. There is a washroom at the entrance to the beach and a place to rinse your feet when you leave. The only issue we had was getting onto the beach. My senior mother had a hard time as... More

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.

Loved walking along the shore bare foot... one of a kind experience, The lighthouse and old fisherman shacks give it a truly unique look that makes amazing backgrounds for photos.

We just stumbled upon this neat little place. It's not fancy, but it's just as it should be. A quaint harbor with an excellent gift shop, and some beautiful scenery. You won't regret stopping here for a bit and stretching your legs.
