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 the historic Panmure Island Lighthouse.
Each year, the Mi'kmaq host a Pow Wow at Panmure Island. This spiritual and cultural event, attracting visitors from Eastern Canada and the New England states, includes drummers, native crafts and a healing sweat tent.
