Went with family from Massachusetts. They were very impressed. Beutiful day and could see PEI on the horizon. Property spotlessly clean, staff friendly and helpful. There are sandy beaches. Property privately owned and operated by J D I Ltd and admission is free.

Pets are not allowed on the beach. There are shaded kennels to keep your pets, so you may enjoy your day on the beach.
