Prince Edward Island is famous for Anne of Green Gables, delicious seafood, and plenty of beaches. Canada's smallest province boasts an impressive 23 beaches, so while in PEI you are never more than a few minutes away from a beach.\nWhile in Prince Edward Island, you have to visit one of their stunning red sand beaches! The beaches are unlike anything you've seen before. Instead of the typical white or golden shade you might expect, they have a rosy red colour. The red comes from the abundance of iron from the red sandstone that has eroded onto the beach. As such the intensity of red depends on the amount of iron present.\nView this post on Instagram Weekend getaway A post shared by Matt Chisholm (@mattchisholmm) on Sep 5, 2017 at 4:45pm PDT\nIf you want to see red sand, one hidden gem in Prince Edward Island is Thunder Cove Beach. The beach is only a short drive from the famous Cavendish Beach which attracts Anne of Green Gables fans and is an excellent spot to escape the crowds. Here you can often have the entire beach to yourself!\nView this post on Instagram Drifted to this location A post shared by DD (@donnie2much) on Jul 19, 2016 at 12:55pm PDT\nThunder Cove Beach has spectacular large red sandstone cliffs along the water's edge, tall stone columns and plenty of red sand. The off the beaten path location is the perfect spot to take photos of an amazing rock formation, Tea Cup Rock, and explore the nearby sea caves.\nThunder Cover Beach is located in Darnley, between Cabot Beach Provincial Park and Cavendish Beach. From Charlottetown, it is an hour drive.\nView this post on Instagram The love of traveling #princeedwardisland #thundercove A post shared by Shadie Ballard🌙🌎🌸 (@shadieballard) on Aug 8, 2018 at 11:22am PDT\nView this post on Instagram My happy place 💛 A post shared by Haley Perry (@hales.perry) on Sep 24, 2017 at 7:59am PDT\nFor more information about visiting Thunder Cove Beach, visit Prince Edward Island Tourism website.
