Our next stop on our quiet luxury adventure was to Picton to visit Sandbanks Provincial Park. After loading up the MKZ, sliding back the panoramic glass roof, and inputting the destination into the navigation system on the control panel, we were ready to embark on our journey.
Once we arrived, we discovered the world’s largest baymouth barrier dune formation that the Sandbanks are famous for. This small climb allowed a truly spectacular view of the area, with Lake Ontario as a backdrop. With three expansive sandy beaches, I must say these were by far the best I’ve seen in Canada.
The Sandbanks are also quite well-known for their bird population, as it’s a hot spot for migration in the Spring and Fall. With various bike and walking trails throughout the park, it’s easy to spot all kinds of Canadian wildlife in their natural habitats.
Whether you want to do some bird watching, get your tan on or just take a relaxing drive by the lake, Sandbanks Provincial Park is definitely a must-see in Prince Edward County.
Last, but not least, stay tuned for part three of our adventure, as we dine and play at the chic Drake Devonshire Inn.
