Northumberland Provincial Park

Mis à jour par The Swim Guide

This beach is right by the Wood Islands Ferry Terminal, meaning that it is a popular first or last stop for many visiting PEI. The large campground has fun amenities like multiple playgrounds, a bandstand, basketball court and a volleyball net, along with the essentials like washrooms, showers, telephones, laundry and picnic areas. There are lifeguards on duty during the summer. Northumberland is a great spot for nature lovers as it is an excellent place for clam digging and bird watching because of the burrowing cliff swallows in the area.

Visitors can often find sand dunes at PEI beaches and parks. Dunes are fragile and easily damaged. It can take as few as 10 footsteps through the same area to destroy a marram grass colony. The roots of this protective plant cover act as a net, shaping and containing the sand. Wind blows away at the exposed sand, turning small depressions into giant holes called blowouts. Blowouts turn stable dunes into constantly shifting hills that are unable to support vegetation or wildlife.

Please use the boardwalks and carpeted foot paths at designated beach access points and stay off the dunes to prevent further damage.
