Spent a wonderful afternoon jumping, floating in the stream, and tromping on the sand to make it sing! Great facilities for changing clothes and snacks. It is a bit of a downward slope to the bridge and beach, therefore not barrier free for the elders...More

The beach area is beautiful here and has a canal you can jump into the ocean off of. One thing I noticed was there seemed to be a lot of jelly fish in the ocean this time of year, so be aware while swimming.

This is one of the best beaches on PEI! Try rubbing your feet in the sand it will make a sound . It’s called a “sibging sand beach” for a reason!

The entire family loved this beach! Great sand strip, perfect for kids. Go early though. In the summer time, it gets pretty packed starting at 11am. Nothing is open before 10am, but you can get an almost uninterrupted dip before 930am. When we were there...More

The sand was amazing and "squeaky". Beautiful place to relax, suntan and enjoy the scenery.You can walk along the rocky shoreline or stroll in the white sand. A lovely gift shop up from the beach.
