Typical north shore beach that rivals all. 25 km from Charlottetown makes it a great local beach so it can be busy. No matter it is never too crowded because of its shoreline that stretches to Covehead, Stanhope, and Tracadie heading east which as well all rival any beaches on the island.

This beach has got to be one of the most picturesque I have ever seen. As you emerge to the crest of the boardwalk entrance, you will see about a km of white sand; blue sky overtop of whitecap blue water as far as the eye can see. This is a bucket list type beach.

We've visited here three times, and the facilities, view, sands, dunes, rocks, everything is lovely, as long as the weather is right. There are change rooms, washrooms, and a little snack bar, lots of parking, and there is a ramp, so it's nearly barrier free...until you get down to the beach level, and then the sand is rather loose and...

If you are near North Rustico, make a point to spend some time at nearby Brackley Beach. It's a National Park so there is a small entry fee but it's worth it. The beach is long and wide with well packed sand that makes it perfect for walking, swimming or playing in the sand. You follow a brand new boardwalk... More

It's a short car ride from downtown Charlottetown. If you're in Charlottetown get on Route 15 a.k.a Brackley Point Rd. The parking lot is free. There are bathrooms & showers. There's a foot shower to clean off your feet outside (near bathrooms) before you put your sandals on and get in back in the car. There's a wooden walkway/ramp that... More
