What a surprise! The north shore of PEI is incredible! October is a great time to visit- no crowds but still enough restaurants open.Worst thing about the island is the $46 toll for the bridge! What a rip.

We stopped at several PEI beaches. Each one is a little different...different plants, even color of sand. Beautiful!!

Great spot that avoids the throngs of cavendish. Clean beach and amenities, crisp water and great biking trail if you're so inclined.

We found this hidden gem of a beach on our third trip through this area. This beach isn't as crowded as Cavendish. It also has free parking and no entry fees. Another advantage is that it is close to a good restaurant, the Blue Mussel...More

Go to Brackley Beach in the PEI national park. Far prettier than Cavendish. Go to Richards Restaurant in Covehead for the best fish and chips! Brackley has a drive in theatre too. A trip into Charlottetown is a must! So much... More
If our daughter gets married at your resort would her niece who is 3 yrs old be able to stay here? And if so, do you have a swimming pool that she would be allowed to use? Thank you for your time.

I was a traveller there. You have to call the resort directly. I only know it is a beautiful place and a must see. You will simply love it. Sorry could not help you.
