The sand is beautiful, white and fine. The sea is calm but still has waves. It is not too deep and its perfect for children to play. A place that cannot be missed at PEI. Very close to Green Gables.

Nice clean beaches. Washrooms could be cleaner but not surprising considering location. Great beach overall. Would visit again. Don't forget your beach chairs. Winds can be breezy and therefore lots of sand blowing around and laying on towels not always best.

Beautiful beach, red sand, great view. We camped right on the shore and it was a wonderful experience. The only downside was the amount of people but that's the problem at any nice beach. Great place for a sunset

The beach was great. White sand, hot weather, clean beach and clean facilities. Not much more you can ask for. One recommendation is to bring a beach umbrella, it gets hot!

Blue waters splashing against the red rocks, makes for a unique view. A very clean beach with no trash in view.

It was a hot July day (around 28C) when we visited in the early afternoon and the beach was well busy but there was still plenty of unexplored spots. There is a fee for entering but worth it, you can get a day pass which...More

Not only is the beach fantastic but the town itself is phenomenal. We absolutely loved Cavendish the most out of all the places we visited and we traveled the whole Province. A must stop if going to Prince Edward Island.

During our PEI vacation we got a beach pass from our motel and hit up the beach. A beautiful long coastline awaited us and there were only 2 people there when we arrived that morning in search of treasure. The little waves were so much...More
