Pointe-aux-Anglais

About

14 miles of fantastic beach on the St. Lawrence River. The parking is literally on the beach. The water is warm enough to swim in; if you’re lucky, you may see whales pass by.

Nearby Attractions

The Musé Louis-Langlois is nearby. This ancestral home dates back to 1873 and features exhibitions on Admiral Walker’s British fleet shipwreck in 1711. Take advantage of this stop, and be sure to also relax on the fine beach next to the site.

Cape Egmont

About

The views were spectacular. Stunning cliffs on the ocean on 3 sides and a beautiful lighthouse on the other side. We were by ourselves the evening and night and, to top it off, had a memorable sunset.

Best Sites or Attractions Here

Cape Egmont Lighthouse is situated on the extreme point of Cape Edmont, 30 meters (100 feet) from its south and west banks. The lighthouse overlooks Northumberland Strait on the southwest shore of Prince Edward Island. This was the only beacon in the 46-mile-long dark expanse between the lighthouse at West Point and Seacow Head.
