The North Cape, Prince Edward Island, is desolate and wind-swept. Exposed to the full force of storms in the Gulf of St Lawerence, Its red shale cliffs are slowly eroding, and nothing besides hardy grasses can survive.
Darnley, on the north coast of Prince Edward Island, is an area of sandy beaches and eroded red cliffs, topped by sand dunes. Although there is a little bit of agriculture inland, the area is more suited to tourists and leisure. During the winter, the area is wind-swept and cold. The cliffs show dramatic erosion, with caves and free-standing rock formations. The beaches are sandy, and make for a fantastic stroll.
