This is our beach! It's a public beach with access at the end of Panting Shore Road. Of course you will just walk over the sand dune to get there. At low tide the seals will be basking and can make quite a ruckous. Head to the point and try your hand at creating an Inuksuk to tell the world you were here.

We love this restaurant! It's located in Georgetown - once a ship building centre - on the waterfront. Chef Terry has transformed this seasonal place into a must do destination for Islanders. While in the town, check out the Maroon Pig and Shoreline Designs, and take a stroll through the gardens next to the Playhouse. 30 minutes drive.

So I have a special tid bit of info for guests who love strolling beaches. Wood Islands is one of a very few beaches that you can collect Island sand dollars. You need to go at a super moon low tide (I can help you with that) to collect these rare sea urchins. The most unusual ones are purple. If you do collect them, make sure you dry them out really well before storing them because they will stink really badly!
