15 of Canada’s most unique beaches


Singing Sands, Souris, Prince Edward Island

Size: 8 kilometres of beach.

Location: Basin Head Provincial Park.

What makes it unique: The sand sings! According to tourism and visitor testimonials, this P.E.I. beach makes a “squeaky singsong noise” when you walk on it. Although scientists have said they’re not completely sure what causes it, studies have shown that spherical quartz sand can produce a similar noise under pressure.

Fun fact: P.E.I. is known to have the warmest beaches north of the Carolinas.
