What a great beach to spend the day. Basin Head is located on the far east side of PEI; probably about a two hour drive from Charlottetown. It literally has miles of sandy beach, and the further you walk, the less crowded it is.The sand on this beach isn't as red as at some others, so you won't have to worry about staining your towels or clothes. As you can see in the photo there is a bridge, which you will probably see lots of kids jumping off of. They have a lovely gift shop that sells all kinds of bandanas, serongs, souvenirs, candy, etc and I believe there is also a restaurant. This was a truly pleasent place to spend the day.
OK. Walking on beaches i s something everybody does in PEI . Every beach is different . some crowded , some deserted .
Visit a different beach every day .
Two that stand out are the Nat'l Park beach near Greenwich and Souris Beach Prov. Park on the east coast . Souris means " whistling or singing ". When you walk on the sand there is a whistling , singing or squeaking sound. SO. Figure out what creates this sound ,
the beaches at PEI are great - just fun the walk there , especially if there is a lighthouse there as well
