Great for kids and families. The beach is a short walk from the parking area and is serviced with clean washrooms. There are food stands and benches up from the very crowded beach with lots of action and activity along the waterfront. This is a...More

What a great beach! You do have to walk down a long path to get to the beach (and to go back up!) The sandy bar goes quite a distance out so makes it nice and shallow for little ones (just watch the tide). They...More

Teapot Beach (National) was my favourite in PEI but this Provincial beach is an interesting spot! However, I really question its position as best Beach in Canada! Parking was a nightmare, it was crowded and the sands didn't sing for us! It did have good...More
