North Rustico Beach was quite,peaceful and nobody around. The red sand beaches and the power waves of the Atlantic make this a site you must visit. Bring a lawn chair and a book.

This beach is fantastic. Once you find it. It can be found to the north over the dunes away from the North Rustico harbour, accessed by car via Church Hill. Washrooms available via gravel road.

This was truly a beautiful beach but I would like it to stay that way. There was a sign that stated no dogs on the beach during the summer months and of course there were many dogs on the beach. Why are these owners not being ticketed and fined large. It ruins it for others. Last thing I want is to step on dog pee and poo.

Access is via the National Park walkway (with bathroom facilites) or via the sandy path closer to the wharf. Parking is limited but most people were parking in either the wharf area or nearer the restaurants. Great beach! There are numerous small businesses and restaurants within 3 minute walk.

I wanted to try a new beach while in the area. I expected much more. It is an ok beach,showers , toilets,no soap in the bathroom.I will definitely go to Cavendish again since it's beautiful landscape is not even comparable to North Rustico .

My first trip to PEI I stayed with friends in North Rustico. I was blown away by the red rocks and sand of the beach. This was just after Hurricane Dorian, so I did not know what to expect as far as storm damage. There was some damage in areas, but the beach was left in great condition. I had a marvelous walk on the beach. There were many birds gathering and swooping along the shores putting on a marvelous display. The red shoreline contrasting with the blue ocean and sky made for magnificent photos. Some of my best memories will be of walking North Rustico Beach and ending my walk in the charming village with a great meal at the "On the Dock Eatery".

There are so many postcard spots to stop in PEI. This was one of our favs. Not a lot of other tourists the day we were there and the water was crystal clear. North Rustico is a wonderful fishing village to stop and relax.

Most beautiful wild flowers on the way from parking lot to the beach. Water is super clean but a bit on colder side, calm waters of the bay was perfect for kids riding skim boards. Red cliff on left side adds to the beautiful scenery of this unique beach.

Beautiful big beach to go to right in town. We paid to get in at the official park entrance and later realized that you can enter at the other end of the beach for free. A perfect spot to spend an afternoon.
