Green Gables Shore Brackley Beach Parks & Beaches Seasonal

Brackley Beach, the largest beach in the central Brackley-Dalvay Region of Prince Edward Island National Park, is just found 20 minutes from Charlottetown. Just like all beaches within PEI National Park, this is a protected area. The dunes that dominate the area landscape are critical to the health of the ecosystem and the dune grass that holds the delicate dunes in place is particularly sensitive to trampling. Keep your feet on designated trails and boardwalks!

Supervised during July and August, Brackley Beach has outdoor showers, washrooms, a snack shop (seasonal) and is equipped with accessibility features: mobility mats, ramps, and special beach wheelchairs and buoyant beach wheelchairs that can be ahead reserved ahead of time.

The popular multi-use trail, Gulf Shore Way East, is a paved pathway frequented by cyclists, hikers, and runners that parallels the roadway for 10 km along the coast from Brackley Beach to Dalvay. The trailhead for the Robinsons Island Trail System found just at the western end of this Region can also be found at Brackley Beach.

Just like all beaches within PEI National Park, visitors must remember this is a protected area. Stay on designated trails and boardwalks and use only designated beach access points. No pets are permitted on the beach from April 1 to October 15 annually but pets on leashes are welcome on the trails.
