Went with family from Massachusetts. They were very impressed. Beutiful day and could see PEI on the horizon. Property spotlessly clean, staff friendly and helpful. There are sandy beaches. Property privately owned and operated by J D I Ltd and admission is free.

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

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