Brackley Beach – PEI National Park

There’s something for every type of beach-goer at Brackley Beach. Cyclists, swimmers, explorers, and sunbathers will all find their piece of paradise along this area of the PEI National Park. An easy and enjoyable 25-minute drive from Cavendish, all your beach-y dreams will come true at Brackley! 

Featuring miles of protected pristine sandy beaches and majestic dunes, Brackley Beach stretches from east from Rustico Harbour all the way to Brackley, and includes Rustico Island. While this section of the park includes six beaches in total, the main beach at Brackley is the most popular amongst both visitors and locals.  It features washroom facilities, ample parking, and wheelchair accessibility. 

Besides mesmerizing sand dunes and uncrowded beachfront, you’ll find cycling paths, and hiking trails along the main stretch of Brackley Beach. The beach is also handily located to various nearby attractions, including the Brackley Drive-In, a must for families and lovebirds alike!

And be sure to visit the eclectically-designed Dunes Gallery comes complete with a gallery of Island art, craft shop and cafe which offers a delicious menu of avant-garde cuisine. You can’t miss it if you head towards the main entrance via Route 15.

As with all areas of the PEI National Park, Brackley Beach is a protected area. Please note that pets are not permitted and walking on the dunes is not allowed. This is to protect the nesting habitat of the endangered Piping Plovers and help reduce the effects of erosion.
