Plan Your VisitMust-See PEI Beaches
Prince Edward Island is a beach destination with more than 800km of beaches along its 1,100km of shoreline. It’s the perfect place to join in the ritual of worshipping where the ocean meets the sandy shore. And it’s definitely sandy here! The Island’s geology is mainly sandstone, easily eroded by wind and water. Where time has had its way with the sandstone, beaches and dunes roll out to sea from the cliffs and out from under the Island’s greenery. The beach dunes are alive, barely held by the dune grass that grows along the shore. Where the grass ends, the dunes are free to change and drift with the wind and water.
The beaches here are surprisingly diverse. Each offers something different than the next – whether supervised or unsupervised, vast and placid or quaint and bustling, fine golden sand or vibrant red earth. There is a beach for every taste. The hardest part of your day might be deciding which beach is right for you!
