While a simple beach on Lake Ontario, it is right next to CFB Picton Training area where in the 1950's, models of the Avro Arrow were launched to test wing shapes.

Excellent place to watch a sunset! You have to walk from the road to the shoreline but it's worth it. If you have an all terrain vehicle, you can take it closer to the water, otherwise I'd recommend leaving your vehicle at the road area...More

Great walk along the stony lakefront but very difficult to get to. Go to the end of the Army road and you end up turning into what looks like someones backyard to park your car.

We found this place by following other cars and it is somewhat hidden as you need to walk through a grassy path to get to the water. It is not packed as a result and the swimming there was great!

Too far from the regular attraction points - not much to see unless you are interested in solidarity.

Point Petre is a relatively hidden gem in Prince Edward County. There are no signs to the water. Drive or walk down one of the lanes that lines the main road and at the end you will discover a wide open view of the lake...More
