Came to P.E.I. for the fall colors but seeing this park and beach was an added bonus. Striking views and lively red sand and cliffs.

What a spectacular view! We could have stayed for hours. The site is very user friendly. You can drive very near, or park and enjoy the scenery to the site.

One if the prettiest spots to get out of your car and enjoy the view if these red sandstone cliffs. It is lovely to drive along this northern coastline and stop to enjoy the beach and sand dunes as well.

This was a gem we just happened upon. The drive on the Gulf Shore Highway is beautiful. Be sure and get out along the way or you won't truly see the beauty of the cliffs. The patterns in the red soil are amazing. We even...More

Margaret is correct - you can take either entrance. There are a couple of look out points along the way which are worth stopping at quickly to see the view. The Cliffs that you can walk down to the beach are named ‘Orby’
