Make sure to pack extra socks and something to clean your shoes with Because obviously closer to the water is very muddy. Shoes got wet socks were wet so had to change before getting back into the car. But if you’re prepared enjoy 👍

PEI is full of potatoes and beaches. This one of the nicest (beaches). Even off season it is impressive.

What a way to spend an hour of peace and quiet time together as a couple, strolling along the beach and enjoying the wonders of natural view.

So clean and beautiful! Gorgeous sand and dunes and views. Water was pretty chilly at the end of September, but it was a lovely visit!
