Argyle Shore Beach

Open from mid-June to mid-September, Argyle Shore is a day-use park on the central south coast of Prince Edward Island within the Red Sands Shore Touring Region. Overlooking the Northumberland Strait, the beautiful terracotta sand beach is backed by sandstone cliffs with waterfalls after rain.

It is adjacent to Argyle Shore Provincial Park. It is unsupervised but has some good amenities for families including a playground, picnic tables, showers and flush toilets. Pets are allowed on the beach as long as they are on a leash.

Argyle Shore is located just off Hwy 19 and is accessed down a flight of steps. If you’re arriving from New Brunswick or Nova Scotia, you will cross to the island along Confederation Bridge, a graceful 13 km long structure that is one of the longest in the world, delivering breathtaking views.

The beach has plenty of typical fun activities when the weather is warm such as building sandcastles, fishing, swimming and sunbathing. On cooler days, beach combing will reward you with pretty sea shells, stranded star fish, sea glass, crabs, jellyfish, oysters and clams.
