Are these two areas close to each other? and what part of PEI are they in? What is the difference?
Quest, if you're looking for accommodations close to Basin Head, I would suggest looking in Souris, East Point, Bay Fortune, or if you wanted to drive a little further (40-50 minutes) Cardigan, Montague, Georgetown. Enjoy your stay!
If you need any further assistance, please feel free to contact our Tourism PEI vacation planners!
Thank you. That sounds great because we are leaving from Souris to Magdalen Islands.
I stayed at a cottage for 5 days inbetween Souris and Basin Head. It was wonderful. See if you can't find something like we did. Our beach was private and was called Robertson's Beach. It was one of the nicest beaches I'd ever been on. Simply beautiful. Everyday we'd watch the ship head of to Magdalen Islands. Have a great time. I hope to return someday soon as the gentle island keeps calling me back.
PS - I stayed in Rusticoville for a couple of nights as well and it was a nice area but I really loved the Souris area best.Edited: 19 August 2012, 10:49
I loved seeing all those similar names krp, just wish they had population on the signs. I'm sure many of them would say 10, 15, maybe 25. LOL Rarely could you drive for more than a km or two without seeing another community sign. And you couldn't drive 10 kms without seeing at least one church and cemetery.
I own a cottage in Anglo Rustico. It's a small village off rte 6 that entails a large church, community center, Inn, School and a museum. One of the best secret beaches is hidden in this area. It's called Barachois Beach. What I love about this area is it is still very quiet, with a great beach but still close to everything if you get bored or like to do stuff.
Souris and that area is beautiful if you don't want to do anything but go to the beach. I did look in this area for a cottage but decided it was too secluded and too far from anything. So it really depends what you are looking for, all areas of the Island are great!!!
The East end of the Island for SURE has best beaches!!!Edited: 29 December 2012, 22:59
