Panmure Island Provincial Park
Panmure Island features one of the most popular white sand beaches on PEI. The park provides life-guards for its supervised swimming areas. The location along a causeway gives water access on both sides of the highway with the sheltered St. Marys Bay on one side and an ocean beach on the other. The sand dunes on the ocean side provide a secluded atmosphere with long stretches of shoreline and a vast view of the ocean makes Panmure Island a beach lover's haven. Tours are offered at historic Panmure Island Lighthouse.
The First Nations People hold an annual Pow Wow at Panmure Island. This spiritual/cultural event, attracting visitors from Eastern Canada and the New England states, includes drum bands, native crafts and a healing sweat tent.
Nearby Attractions include Deep Sea Fishing, and Kings Castle Provincial Park
Panmure Island Provincial Park is located within the Points East Coastal Drive touring region.
