Hog Island and the Malpeque Sand Hills Professional Review and Guide
"This part of Malpeque Bay is tailor made for coastal kayaks. You will need to paddle some long distances, often with the effects of the wind, although equally on calm water behind the sheltering hills. The dunes here can reach 50 feet in height. The Sand Hills — a long barrier that stretches for miles north to Alberton — have bordering marsh grass that afford the perfect environment for many species of shorebirds. Be sure to have your binoculars handy. These barrier dunes protect the bay and the Narrows and remind us that the mainland of PEI once stretched to the gulf side of the hills. The waters are rising, so at some time in the future, these hills will disappear into the deep."
