We were only in P.E.I. for the day, so we couldn't stay long, but I had to see the beach that inspired me in the movies (Anne ) & book. It was breathtakingly beautiful! The rocks are gorgeous & fun to walk on & explore....More

Just love the beach - clear water, soft sand, never feels crowded close to Abby Lane Cottages- and Cows Ice Cream after the beach.
