Beach (off season) at Sandbanks Provincial Park

Joseph Hollick

Prince Edward County is an island on the north shore of Lake Ontario near the City of Belleville connected to the mainland by several bridges. It consists of numerous towns, villages and hamlets such as: Ameliasburgh, Bloomfield, Carrying Place, Cherry Valley, Consecon, Demorestville, Milford, Northport, Picton, Rednersville, Waupoos, Wellington and West Lake.

The County is home to artists, farmers, nature lovers, cyclists and Sandbanks Provincial Park. The County also offers galleries, shops, and a growing wine industry. 

The quiet roads connecting these towns offer great cycling opportunities.  Aside from cycling or camping at Sandbanks, BEWARE: there is nothing to do!  All shops close at 5 pm.   Most restaurants offer mediocre, overpriced food, which makes one wonder why they insist on reservations and closing their doors before 8:30.  One restaurant in particular, the Devonshire in Wellington, is especially unwelcoming.  For such a beautiful area, one might expect hiking trails, cycling paths, farmer's markets, and water access to dot the countryside - this is not the case.

Prepare to be disappointed in Prince Edward County.
