Visited after season closed. No one else on beach. Amazing sunset. Amazing color of the sand. And really cold water. At least for this southerner. Just gorgeous.

Beach is gorgeous, lots of space, red sand and tucked away. Its free to go to, water is shallow for quite a ways out. Definitely worth a visit to relax.

Nice fluffy red sand beach with shallow water where you can walk out far. Busy, but far from overcrowded.

Go to Brackley Beach in the PEI national park. Far prettier than Cavendish. Go to Richards Restaurant in Covehead for the best fish and chips! Brackley has a drive in theatre too. A trip into Charlottetown is a must! So much... More

I was a traveller there. You have to call the resort directly. I only know it is a beautiful place and a must see. You will simply love it. Sorry could not help you.
