We have been traveling to PEI for summer vacations for quite awhile. This is the place we go for groceries and shopping for souvenirs. If you are ever there on the 1st of July, go to their fireworks display at the harbor. It is fantastic!!!!! No charge and they do a phenomenal job for such a small town. Big cities... More

The beach was just lovely...soft sands, big sand dunes,where we saw a bald eagle perched, sun sparkling on the water and very few peopl because we were slightly ahead of high season.

We took a brief stroll on tis lovely beach after walking the boardwalk. There is a nice lighthouse, gift shop with pier, bike and kayak rentals, great restaurants and all within walking distance. Not many people around and the wave action was great on this windy day. Hint: At the intersection is the bakery not to be missed with home... More

The area still remains in operations of its generation to generation of past down fishing tradition, old original Shanty's, lobster boats with use of traditional wooden traps, right next to the best know beaches of PEI - Cavendish! Also go Blue Fin Tuna fishing or seafood all you can eat, or try a home cooked meal or bring a cooler... More

This is a picturesque beach which is less busy than the beaches around Cavendish. It also abuts on a picturesque fishing village. Definitely, a beach to enjoy.

Visited the end of July. We parked our car, in a parking lot, past the boat tour/other buildings. I stayed near the Harbour area, while my husband, daughter and her friend walked to the beach. They had a lovely walk along the beach, and loved it as the waves were crashing in, and they enjoyed the breeze coming off the... More

This is a great family beach. The water gradually deepens so the toddlers can play near the waters edge. There is a guarded area and the beach is very deep. Souvenir shopping is close by as well are washrooms. I dont recommend a walk on the breakwater as it is quite a challenge even for adults. The beach is long... More
