Location: Magdalen Islands (Iles de la Madeleine), off the northern coast of P.E.I.
Size: 8.5 kilometre stretch of sand. (Combined, the Magdalen Islands are home to more than 300 kilometres of beach.)
What makes it unique: Plage de la Grande Echouerie is one of a dozen islands that make up the Magdalen Islands and the cluster has been described as a Canadian archipelago reminiscent of the Greek Islands.
Fun fact: When the tide is low, visitors have the opportunity to explore the surrounding caves and cliffs.
