Beaches

Lakeside Beach

Lakeside Beach, located just 30 minutes east of Charlottetown, is the choice beach for many Prince Edward Island locals, known as “Islanders”. This gorgeous mile long white sand beach sits nestled next to the fairways of the award winning Links at Crowbush Cove Golf Course.  It is a perfect spot to enjoy a simple beach experience (you know the basic type, without the facilities/amenities and parking lots).

Insider’s Tip: It’s free! The locals park on the road leading to the beach. After a relaxing day at the beach, head to the nearby Riverside Diner and try some pizza by the slice.
