~ Keppoch Beach ~

Keppoch Beach is an Island secret. Bounded by private land, the beach is primarily accessible only by land owners. Lying  on P.E.I.’s South Shore, the Beach borders the warm waters of the Northumberland Strait. It is probably the warmest, good swimming, sandy beach on the island. The sand flats and tidal pools soak up the sun’s heat during low tide and as the tide rises, the warm waters of Hillsborough Bay flow in over the sand and the pools raising the already warm waters to very pleasant temperatures.

Directly below the property lies a natural spring dispensing fresh, cool water from the rocks that form the cliff.
Stick a shell into the side of the cliff and a stream of clear refreshing water will cascade into your cupped hands.
For generations upon generations this spring has provided beach-goers with refreshment.
Here a couple of girls take advantage of natures canteen as their dog wades in the water.
