Nice little Eco-Center with some interesting information about the area and the history. On a clear day can just see PEI from the center. Boardwalk has been partially rebuilt since it was destroyed by storms. But nice area to walk along boardwalk or beach

Set on the bay a walk along the broad walk takes you to the centre which had a small exhibition of interest and relevance to ecology but needs new materials and an update.

If you love the beach make a point to visit .....you can walk on this beach for hours without the crowds . Watch for the sand piper they do a lovely dance on the sand by the water. Tranquility and nature at it's best .

Every natural aspect of this beach is phenomenal. The beach features fine sand, warm, calm waters and measures several kilometers in length, stretching out in both directions from the Eco Centre buildings at the entrance. Irving has gone to great lengths to safeguard the sensitive...More

If you have the chance to take the time, take a few hours to walk or ride a fat bike beyond the walkway. We did this last summer and the lighthouse at the end of the dunes was our reward. Secluded and spectacular!

Unfortunately we were running late and the buildings were closed and staff gone. However, the information boards along the boardwalk were very informative. One set of information boards was especially good in that it showed the changes in the dunes due to storms and erosion...More

Very informative staff, great walk way with informative plaques along the way. Stairs for beach access. Peaceful setting, only sound was the waves and birds

A gorgeous, quiet beach. There has been very little foot traffic every time I've visited throughout the summer, which makes this place so much more appealing to me than the busier beaches farther south. The signs along the boardwalk are informative and worth the read,...More

Boardwalk for ease of walking but you can still access the beach. I've been here a few times. Always great photo ops.

Pets are not allowed on the beach. There are shaded kennels to keep your pets, so you may enjoy your day on the beach.
