We visited the beach on a rainy day so we did not stay for too long but the beach is very beautiful and we are hoping to go back on a sunny day.

Fun beach. Sand wasn’t as red as I thought it was going to be. Could see jelly fish in the water. Most of the crowd stays in one small area so you’re able to walk down the beach and sit in a more private area.

You just can't beat summer on Prince Edward Island. We have some of the best beaches on the eastern seaboard. Brackley is a very nice beach but it is not the best one on PEI. It is clean and the Dunes are beautiful to see.

Really enjoyed that beach. In a provincial park and near Charlottetown. Crossed the dune with few steps and get on that great beach. A very good place to get with kids. Not deep, clear water.

This beach is a lovely spot for families, couples, or anyone wanting to enjoy nature. My wife and I walked two of the trails and took too many photos. Quiet, secluded and beautiful!

Miles of beaches that have warm ocean breezes. Even the water was warm. It takes a walk to get into the deeper water but that makes it safer for kids to play.. What a place to relax.

Dogs are not allowed on national park beaches but they are allowed on the walking trails as long as they are on leashes.

Yes. It is free but you do have to pay to get into the national park as most of our beaches are on park land.
