Many areas to explore, miles of whiter sandy beaches, dunes that tower 5 stories high. Lovely natural area.

What an incredible surprise to be found right in Ontario (Prince Edward county). Just beautiful, and going in October meant no touristy noise so you can enjoy the serene beauty. Highly recommend going in October!
