During Peak-Season Portside rents Sat-Sat from July 6 to August 24. Portside cottage rests 75 feet from a 1000 foot long deep clean red and white sandy beach. The cottage faces the Northumberland Strait on the southernmost tip of PEI, with the warmest waters and calmest seas on PEI. We have 3 cottages on 20 acres and a completely private lane. You will share the beach with one other cottage whose property borders near Portside. If you love the beach, you will be right at home here. There is a big change in the tide every day. At high tide you can swim or walk along the shore and search for sea glass and other treasures. When the tide is low, you can swim, and take advantage of all the sea life on the sandbars and tide-pools. You can walk for miles on the bare sandbars at low tide or dig some bar clams. There are plenty of chaise loungers, small wooden tables, and umbrellas on the beach to catch some shade on hot afternoons.
