About the Area
East Point Lighthouse

Stroll along the dunes to your own semi-private white sand dune beach. Great swimming, walking, sunbathing and relaxing.

Shipwatch Dune is less than 5 minutes driving time from East Point Lighthouse "where the tides meet", and 5 minutes from North Lake, the "tuna capital of the world".

The famous Basin Head Beach with its "singing sands" is 10 minutes away, and the Links at Crowbush Cove, a world-class golf course, is approximately 45 minutes. The Town of Souris is approximately 20 minutes and has restaurants, supermarkets, gas stations, hardware store, hospital and various other services. The provincial capital of Charlottetown is 1 hour and 15 minutes.

Numerous tourist attractions, scenic drives, restaurants, etc. are available in the Eastern Kings County area. A variety of brochures for attractions in the surrounding area are provided.

Eastern Kings has not suffered from the level of intense development experienced by some other popular PEI beach destinations. The recently opened Greenwich National Park (approximately 1/2 hour drive from Shipwatch Dune) celebrates the unspoiled beauty of PEI's coastal parabolic dune systems. Its walking trails and interpretive center are aimed at an evolving type of tourism focused more toward the natural features of the Island and its ecology.

Visitors are increasingly attracted by these natural wonders as well as the pure fun of the Island beaches in the summer. The Eastern Kings area offers a delightful combination of the elements of natural beauty and the fun of a summer vacation on Prince Edward Island.
