Prince Edward Island is the most wonderful of locations to spend your summer vacation. Summer visitors have been coming to this paradise in the gulf ever since the advent of readily accessible commercial travel. The coastline is perfect for the construction of beach homes and cottages and in most areas there is easy access to the 1000 or more miles of coastline. There are however a few places where the land rises sharply from the sea to form red cliffs. Along the ocean frontage on the Belfast Highland Greens Golf Course, the highest cliffs on the Island are found. As a golfer stands on the 7th green he is able to gaze across Orwell Bay from a height of 170 feet. The cliff system running along along the golf course was given the name "Megwasa" by the Miq Maq people which means "red cliffs". PEI is home to some of the most fabulous beaches, and visitors come by the thousands to play and splash in the surf on the North Shore and soak up the summer sun on the inviting sand. The sandy beaches of the island come in two distinct colours: the sand on the North Shore and extending around East Cape and towards Souris is lighter in color and in some places is white; the shores along the Northumberland Strait have reddish sand, much the colour of the soil of PEI.
