https://innatbayfortune.com Chef Michael Smith's business located in Fortune about a 20 minutes drive from the cottage. I love Fortune and it's worth the drive to Fortune to see the beautiful Inn. The Fireworks Feast dining is booked for summer 2021. There are woodland trails, inn grounds & gardens that you can visit. The trail map is on the wall inside the inn or you can ask for a book. There is also a little gift shop with lots of cookbooks.

Located at Souris Beach, might be the best LOBSTER ROLL on the Island (according to my Dad!). There are also amazing fresh oysters from Colville Bay Oyster Co. Johnny Flynn is my old neighbor growing up in Souris. He is a local fisherman & with his family started this business making amazing seafood dishes right on the Souris Beach with bounty from his own nets & traps. Great service, nice views with a deck overlooking the water & delicious takeout seafood. You can't go wrong stopping here for a bite! https://colvillebayoysterco.com/lobster-shack/

https://richardsfreshseafood.com Located on Covehead Wharf (this is the best location!) it's gorgeous at sunset with the deck overlooking the fishing boats and the Covehead Harbour bridge. The lighthouse is located across the road so after you have a delicious fresh seafood dinner you can check out the sunset on the beach. Just amazing!! It's a busy & popular location so please be prepared for a line-up but they move fast and have the best service! Highly recommend! *****

Best Beaches Around
This is a gem of the eastern part of the Island! A must see at least once. It does get very busy with parking and there is a bit of a walk down-hill to the beach & wharf so depending on your mobility you should keep this in mind. However, there is the Fisheries Museum located just off the parking lot, a viewing area, bathrooms, take-out restaurant & a few gift shops. On the walk down to the beach, there is a children's play area & covered shaded areas with picnic tables. It's very exciting to see people of all ages jumping off the bridge & wharf into the run. Once you cross the bridge, check out the singing sands. The beach is gorgeous and views are phenomenal.

Secluded, endless white sandy beach. This secret gem is truly a dream! Stunning with some of the best wind swept dunes, and beautiful scenery including piping plovers. There are no amenities and parking is minimal. Intersting Fact : There is an open run near Bothwell which drains South Lake; it shifts east or west each year depending on the winter’s storms and tides, and has consistently been moving east for the past hundred years or so.

Red Point Beach is a really nice beach about a 3 minute drive from the cottage. You can walk to it from our beach (Sandy's Beach) but it would be a long walk for young children. There is parking, facilities, a playground and a lifeguard on duty.

Splash Pad - Souris
SPLASH PAD - if you want a little change from the sandy beach. The splash pad is super cute, there are amenities and a children's playground. The beach is just beyond the splash pad so you can do both. Really well kept.
