Unique Destination Series: Red Clay Beaches, Prince Edward Island

Over the years Prince Edward Island in Canada has received an increasing amount of tourist attention. This small Canadian island offers a chance to getaway and enjoy a truly charming and unique vacation. There is a lot to see and do on the island, from visiting the Anne of Green Gables home to touring the rolling countryside, but one experience that should not be missed is the red clay beaches of PEI.

While most beaches are covered in sand, maybe rocks, Prince Edward Island is home to beaches of clay. These clay deposits have colored the sand, providing a distinctly different way to view the water and the sunsets. These beaches are all along the coast of PEI, and are often home to festivals and community events due to their unique and pleasant nature.

Of course, as with any beach, this type of vacation comes with the opportunity to swim, boat, or get involved in watersports, all from the vantage point of the red sandy beaches. There are provincial maps for anyone looking to tour several such beaches, and the locals are more than friendly about helping you find the best spot to view.

There are some sights people never forget seeing, that places become known for, and Prince Edward Island has become truly known for its red sandy clay beaches. So what are you waiting for? Get your ETA Canada, passport and favorite swimming clothes, you have a visit to plan!
