Beachcomb on the long pebble beach for driftwood and fossils or swim off the big flat limestone edges. It's an excellent place to watch the sunset and have a picnic.
No so much for swimming (unsupervised) but for the interesting rocky shore
One of our favourite swimming spots. Bring your aqua shoes (a Giant Tiger essential) for the rocky terrain.
“Nice place to eat, generous portions, friendly staff, great local craft beers and ciders”
“Steeped in history and rich in natural features, this Conservation Area, located atop a 20 metre high limestone bluff, commands a panoramic view of Prince Edward Bay and the rugged shoreline of this southern reach of the county. Take the pathway to the cobblestone beach below and view the high bluff from a different perspective. There are 1.5 km of trails at this 28 hectare (70 acre) site. This quiet shoreline is actually a barrier beach, effectively protecting a small wetland from the windswept waters of Prince Edward Bay. Here, Canada geese, mallards, great blue herons, bitterns and Virginia rails find the protected habitat they require. A Little History This area contains the remains of a grain storage and docking facility where schooners once loaded barley destined for Oswego. During the 1860s to 1890s, all of Prince Edward County reveled in the wealth realized from the prosperous “Barley Days.””
