Amazing beach, very popular! When walking on the sands you can hear them sing, which is very cool to experience! Further down there is red cliffs to enjoy and explore. There are some amenities - food and such - available at the beach. Highly recommend!

If you can only hit one of the beautiful beaches in pei, make it this one! It is so cool, with a bridge joining the two sides that kids and adults jump off into the waters below, depending on the tide. It was packed the day we went but still lots of room on the huge beach with the singing sands!

Along with Inverness Beach on Cape Breton, and Sandy Cove Beach in NL, this is among my favorite beaches in Canada! Didn’t hear the sand singing but no matter; it’s a beautiful long beach you can walk for miles on, and the sand is soft and beautiful. I liked being here in October without the crowds; too cool for swimming, but pretty much had it to ourselves to listen to the crashing waves.

Known for its' singing sands...they had the day off as we did not hear them. The museum was also closed (on a Sunday) HOWEVER, they did open to accommodate a tour bus. Also known for sea glass....we did not see any....may have been picked over prior to our arrival in late morning.

The beach is quite nice and long. There are several good facilities for people to change their clothes and rid themselves of the saltwater residue.

Nice place for people to spend a day at the beach...and no entry charge.

We were there in September so the shops were closed but there were still a few persons enjoying the beautiful beach of nice golden sand. There is a bridge that the young at heart jump from into the water. Just walking on the beach was perfect for us. I don't know how long the beach is, but we walked for more than an hour and we could have gone on for a while. And it's free !
