When Prince Edward Island’s railway was abandoned in 1989 Islanders were quick to notice a unique opportunity. The idea of a tip-to-tip shared use walking and cycling trail in the summer and a snowmobile trail in the winter was born. With beautiful rolling hill scenery, quaint villages and broad bay seascapes, the Confederation Trail is Prince Edward Island’s portion of the Trans Canada Trail.

The 445 kilometres of rolled stone dust trail has gentle gradients which never exceed 2% (up or down). This Island wide exploration corridor is ideal for visitors of all fitness levels. The Main Trail starts in Tignish at kilometre 0 and ends in Elmira at kilometre 273. Branch trails extend into the heart of Charlottetown and to the waterside communities of Souris, Georgetown, Montague, Wood Islands, Murray River and Murray Harbour, plus the link to the Confederation Bridge in Borden-Carleton. Along the trail, you will find a convenient selection of accommodations, food and services. Not all accommodations are directly on the trail and do require roadway travel. For safety concerns please check with the accommodation providers regarding distance. While exploring the trail, take advantage of the opportunity to discover the many charming villages along the way.

Basin Head Beach was named the top beach in Canada in 2015 by the Globe and Mail. Nicknamed, The Singing Sands, because if run your feet through its sand, it will actually sing! Really, we’re not kidding.  Though it seems magical, the singing is the result of the high silica content in the sand making it squeak underfoot when heated by the sun. And there’s plenty of sun! The beach is kilometers long with the whitest sand on the Island. A narrow channel running to a small inland pond divides Basin Head Beach. Depending on the tide, water in the channel can be fast moving, posing a hazard to swimmers. During the swimming season, a lifeguard is posted at the channel to keep those braver swimmers safe.

This beach is one of Prince Edward Island’s provincial parks and with that comes bathrooms and a canteen. Basin Head Provincial Park is home to a rare type of Irish Moss that can only be found within the area. That’s pretty rare! Because of the moss, Basin Head watershed was established as a Marine Protected Area. It is a supervised beach.

Location :Located off route 16, east of the town of Souris. Basin Head is a day use park featuring a supervised white sand beach, play area, food on site, washroom and shower facilities.

Wheel Chair Accessible : The park also features a beach mat that will allow access from the wharf to the water and a floating wheelchair. The floating wheelchair is available daily from 10 – 6 and is first come, first served. When surf conditions are at Caution or Danger the floating wheelchair is not be accessible.

Myriad View Artisan Distillery Est. 2006


When our family first moved to the island in 2003 we soon found ourselves being invited to many social gatherings. At every event, from family reunions to weddings, wakes, births, deaths and everything in-between, homemade moonshine would make an appearance. It seemed every family had a still!
Coming from away, I naively asked if everyone drinks shine, why isn’t it available in the liquor stores. With hoots of laughter and a slap on the back people told me to try and see if it was possible. The idea was set. Three years later and with new legislation drafted around us to permit distilling on the Island, we opened our doors. 
With PEI having endured 48 years of Prohibition, we can’t claim to be the first makers of moonshine on the Island,  but we do claim to be the best!
Situated in Rollo Bay overlooking The Northumberland Strait.
With an ever-changing view that gave us our name.
The Myriad View.
