Panmure Island Provincial Park

Administrado por The Swim Guide

Panmure Island is an island off the island, connected to PEI by a causeway. The causeway has beaches on both sides meaning visitors have two beach options. On one side is a white sand ocean beach with beautiful panoramic views of the ocean, and the other is the sheltered red sand St. Mary’s Bay beach, a prime spot for clam digging. The beach has lifeguard supervision in the summer and a scenic watchtower. The provincial park campground has washrooms, showers, laundromat, picnic tables and change rooms. Visitors can go for a tour at the historic lighthouse on the island, the oldest wooden lighthouse in PEI. The island has an annual Pow Wow held by the First Nations people, which has a drum band, a sweat tent and crafts.

SOURCE INFORMATION

Prince Edward Island does monitor recreational water quality. Please use caution if visiting these beaches and look for signs posted in the area indicating whether the water is clean enough for swimming.

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.
