Basin Head Provincial Park
Location: Points East Coastal Drive
Park Type: Day Use Park
Supervised Beach: Yes
The Basin Head day-use park features a supervised beach, fisheries museum, play area, on-site concessions, washroom and shower facilities. The beach is supervised and split into two sections, divided by a channel, known locally as “the run.” The pure white sand of the area is geologically unique. Because it actually "sings" when stepped on due to its high silica content, the beach is nicknamed "the Singing Sands".
A beach mat gives access to the water from the wharf and a floating wheelchair is available when surf conditions are safe.
LIFEGUARD NOT ON DUTY at this time. When beaches are UNSUPERVISED, visitors swim at their OWN RISK.
