Amazing beach, very popular! When walking on the sands you can hear them sing, which is very cool to experience! Further down there is red cliffs to enjoy and explore. There are some amenities - food and such - available at the beach. Highly recommend!

This must be one of the best beaches in Canada. We must have walked 5 kms north along the beach and enjoyed our selves immensely. Worth the drive from Georgetown.
