“Worth the drive from Cavendish ”

Basin Head Provincial Park
Ranked #1 of 19 things to do in Souris
Attraction details
Reviewed 19 September 2017 via mobile

This is my favorite beach in PEI. The sands are white and sing. The ocean is warmer than other beaches and we enjoyed jumping off into the canal. The beach had multiple lifeguards on duty and the facilities were big and clean. There were places to get food and even a museum. Worth the 2 plus hour drive over from Cavendish.

Basin Head is considered one of the choice beaches in this eastern area of Prince Edward Island. Very popular place for the locals to go swimming.
On the sand dunes above the beach is the Basin Head Fisheries Museum, so you can combine swimming and learning about the local fishing culture. Do both for a couple of very enjoyable hours.

Not sure about the singing, but the beach is fantastic! Soft, white sand that's perfect to walk in. We arrived around 9:30, hardly anyone was around at that time. The water was a great temperature for swimming.

All of the amenities you need are a short walk away. There's a boardwalk to take you from the parking lot to the beach area. And showers part way up to rinse off before reaching the car.

This park has all the amenities to spend a fun-filled day with family and friends. A great beach to relax and enjoy the sand talk to you. You can also be adventurous and jump off a bridge and let current take you out to sea.

Even with high winds, the air temperature was just chilly for our September 4th visit. Not very many people this visit but we had fun trying not to be sandblasted and blown off the pier. Lunch was good.
