Shipwatch Dune Beach House offers all the comforts of home in one of the most beautiful natural settings in Prince Edward Island. The house is nestled in a grove of spruce trees at the edge of a pristine sea of spectacular dunes. The house has two screened decks overlooking the dunes and the Gulf of St. Lawrence. Seven acres of land with 320 feet of beach frontage, affording total privacy to our guests. The restful quiet is often enhanced by the soothing sounds of the surf rolling in from the Gulf on the North or the Northumberland Strait to the Southeast - part of the 'land's end' experience. The path to the beach winds through the dunes and affords vistas of ponds, forest and pastoral beauty. The private beach is one of the most magnificent on PEI. It's great for sunbathing and the clean sandy bottom slopes gently to provide excellent swimming. There are literally miles of beach to explore. Shipwatch Dune Beach House enjoys a prestigious four-star rating from Canada Select.
