I grew up going to this beach and still love it. The tide goes out really far providing lots of sandbars on which to walk and beachcomb but you can also walk a long way on the shore as well. There are showers and lots...More

A perfect spot when the tide is out for families to go and relax. With a lot of red sand beach to explore, the Confederation Bridge as a backdrop and ocean water to swim in, it was perfect. Change rooms, washrooms and a water hose...More

We wanted to avoid the crowds at the more popular beaches so we picked this one. It was perfect. During the day at peak season there are lifeguards, and they have washrooms, showers, and changing rooms. At low tide you can walk pretty far out....More

Nice beach with a lifeguard and great views of the Confederation Bridge. In mid July we swam here when there were too many jellies on the north coast. It was also nice for poking around at low tide.

This beach is not well-known, so it's not very busy. The is host to crabs, and snails, so the kids and grownups had fun watching the wildlife. There are also different birds (sandpiper?) that pop around in the sand. We would recommend this park, but...More

We spent several days at this beach. Free, not crowded, and good forge kids. Really fun when the tide goes out. There was no odour unlike other free beaches. Lots of hermit crabs and snails to keep the kids busy. Would recommend it to others.

Dirty and smelly. Had to wade through about 25 feet of smelly gross seaweed and dead fish to get to where the tide went out. No dry sand. "Lifeguard" was lying on the sand/grass at the back nowhere near the water "sunbathing". Yes that's right....More
