The $8.50 per person was fair for how nice the beach was and I don't mind contributing to Parks Canada. Shaw's Beach and Brackley Beach are connected and you can walk to one from the other. We found prime parking right out front along the road by the boardwalk entrance to Shaw's Beach.

Brackley beach is gorgeous and a bike path runs right next to it. I sat on the beach while my husband had a long ride on the bike path. As in all Canadian parks they had excellent, clean services, wonderful parking and easy access. Loved it!

Excellent beach, very clean and nicely maintained by Parks Canada. The area has ample parking, washroom facilities and lifeguards on the beach. The water is shallow and you can walk out for 100 ft in some areas and the water is still only to your calves, thus very safe for children. Brackley Beach stretches out for a long way so there is plenty of room for families to spread out. The sand dunes are quite breathtaking. The sand is soft and a light red colour. We were there on a very hot day 🏖in August and it was a fantastic experience, it felt like we were in the Caribbean. If hot weather permits, go to Brackley Beach and enjoy this natural wonder in PEI.

This is a beautiful long sandy beach with life guards. It is a safe place to swim in the Gulf of St. Lawrence but the water was not warm when we were there in early July.

Clean and fun,,,busy on the beautiful warm and sunny afternoon but what a beach ! The handicap accesability ramp makes it a joy to get over the dunes to the beach.

Beautiful beach but this time we were there, it was quite busy and very windy there. It was hard to really enjoy ourselves this time given the cold wind. Even the lifeguards were all bundled up with their gear for cold conditions. Lots of parking (with EV charging stations). Washroom & change facilities available.

The weather was overcast while we were there so we had the beach mainly to ourselves. It is huge. We enjoyed walking along the water and watching the waves. It was still warm. Not sure if you can swim at this beach

There are a number of places to park and walk down to the beach along the main road leading from the main beach to the Dalvay Resort. The views. are spectacular and the sea air invigorating.

We go to Brackley Beach every time we come to the Island. There is lots of parking and it’s a great place for a walk or bike ride. There is a gift shop/canteen along with washrooms and changing rooms.

The beach itself is expansive and the sand is very fine. There were National Park staff there that taught us about dune formation and how not to destroy the dunes, and also what sea life can be found in the local waters.

An excellent beach that we prefer over Cavendish Beach due to the fact that the sand extends well into the water, whereas at Cavendish there are areas where there is hard sandstone under the water that you can step on and hurt your feet.

As always Brackley Beach is a slice of heaven on earth.
Due to Covid the crowds were non existent.
There is a lifeguard for one section and a wheelchair accessibility to the water.
