We still remember the unique orange colored beach since our visit last summer. We enjoyed walking barefoot along the sandy beach while enjoying the warm sea breeze, the pebbles, the washed up jelly fish and the blue colored sky. A must-see PEI attraction.

Make sure to pack extra socks and something to clean your shoes with Because obviously closer to the water is very muddy. Shoes got wet socks were wet so had to change before getting back into the car. But if you’re prepared enjoy 👍

During my trip in August 2018 I was very pleased with this beach, having to pay a per person entrance fee was annoying to get into the area, but overall the beach was very relaxing and the water was great.
