We were here on a cold day so we didn't swim, though the water was surprisingly warm. This is a great place to just enjoy being near the water, and we enjoyed wading, and walking along the beach.

We had the best time exploring this and several other PEI beaches. What a surprise to find awesome beaches in the North!

Loved our stroll along the boardwalk. So many tributes to our Gallant "kin" here! We enjoyed stopping to see each of the beautiful sculptures and read the inscriptions.

Visited the beach with my children (ages 9 and 12). Parked at end of boardwalk and walked to beach end. Too bad a nasty storm sprung up and my husband had to run back to get the car. Well supervised with life guards when we were there.

Got to the north end of the island and saw the most gorgeous views here. Put our feet into the ocean and got some great pics. Too bad the rain fell and cut the visit short

Nice place for peaceful ocean views and sunsets. We were there in springtime, so did not go in the water.

We were fascinated by the fishing in the area - people were so friendly along that area. We talked to many locals that walk the beach - some fisherman and even a fish market in the harbor area - get fun - we enjoyed that area - even bought a few buoy's and couple lobster traps to take home.

This beach is not as well known as many others in the area, but is one our kids constantly ask to go to. The beach as a fairly long and shallow progression into the ocean, which makes walking along the shore ideal.

Being part of a convention gave us a special opportunity to see and hear about the area from the mayor and a fisherman's wife, as they showed us the boardwalk, and how the lobster trap nets were woven.
