Hi,

Going to PEI soon and have read about the Red Cliffs and seen some really nice pictures of them. However I can't seem to find where they are. How do I get to them?

Hi thanks for the info.

While reading that site, I don't think it was talking about the Red Cliffs that I have seen pictures of.

Here is one of the pictures I saw.

From the link I gave you.

There is a warmth that envelopes you here, and it’s embodied by the colour
red: the red sand beaches that await your footprints and castles, the
red jutting cliffs that will both impress and humble you
and the red
clay roads that disappear over hills and beckon you to follow. These are Mother
Nature’s imprints on Red Sands Shore.

The dirt on the ground in PEI is red clay. You will definitely see red cliffs if you go to most any beach.

Basin Head beach on the Eastern tip of the Island is THE most beautiful beach I've ever been. The sand 'sings' when you walk on it :-)

This. Clay is easily eroded and those cliffs are the result of years and years of storms. As for the particular picture you posted, it could be a bunch of places. It could be Argyle Shore PP (south), Red Point PP (east), Darnley Beach or Cabot Beach PP (north), Tignish and North Cape (northwest), Cape Wolfe (southwest). I don't think it's Cavendish although parts of it are set to a similar background.

Heck, I know Shutterstock says it's PEI, but it could very well be the Iles-de-la-Madeleine, which is where you should be headed if the only criterion is red sandstone cliffs:
