Brackley Beach

Brackley Beach is just 20 minutes from Charlottetown, located within the PEI National Park. This beach is part of a protected area that stretches from Rustico harbour to Brackley, continuing west to Stanhope and Dalvay. Altogether, six beach areas dot this coastline with Brackley Beach the largest and most popular among them. The Gulfshore Parkway runs 10km along the coast parallel to the bach and it meanders over salt marshes and alongside sand dunes. Just like Cavendish, Brackley is a wheelchair accessible beach and a special beach wheelchair with fat tires can be booked ahead through the visitor centre.

Insider’s Tip: Need a quick rinse of the salt and sand before heading to dinner? The ample showers & change rooms in the beach complex are a great place to make a quick change from your beachwear to your dinner attire.
