Blooming Point Beach
Located on the north coast of Prince Edward Island, Blooming Point Beach is a stunning white sandy beach edged with rolling dunes. It extends along a natural sand spit that partially blocks the entrance to Tracadie Bay.
The beach is fairly hard to find and consequently is beautifully quiet and peaceful. Access is from Route 218 (little more than a dirt road) at the end of Macdonald Street where parking is available. Paths lead over the dunes to protect them from erosion as they are only held together with a fragile root system of marram grass.
Visitors can enjoy a peaceful stroll along the water’s edge or enjoy a summer picnic. Blooming Point Beach Trail is a 4.2km out-and-back hike that is ideal for all fitness levels as it has an elevation of just 16m total. It offers some stunning sea views and occasional birds and wildlife.
This off-the-beaten-path beach is popular with nudist sunbathers and swimmers, just so you know. They tend to gather at the far northwest end of the beach.
There are no lifeguards and no restrooms or refreshments at Blooming Point Beach. However, it is a lovely beach for campfires, shelling, building sandcastles, playing frisbee, sunbathing and paddling. There are some big waves at times. This dog-friendly beach is also pretty remote so be prepared to bring everything with you.
