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.

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.

Beautiful red sand. Water is cool on that side of the island, but it was a nice quiet beach, unlike Cavendish. The only issue I had, was that I did not see a washroom, so we only stayed for a short time.

North Rustico Beach was a great place to spend the day. The beach was not crowded and the water felt great. Our children had a wonderful time splashing around. You definitely don't want to miss it!

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
