For someone who has lived in Canada for most of my life, I've travelled and criss-crossed this country many times. But most of my trips have been to cities, lakes or mountains. I've very rarely made it to beach. Surprising, huh? It's especially surprising when you learn that the world's second biggest country has some 260,000 kilometres of coastline. We have more beaches and coastline than almost anywhere in the world! One of the little known facts about Canada is that it has one of the longest coastlines in the world! It's only when you look at the map you notice all the wonderful coastal destinations. From Prince Edward Island to British Columbia, you can enjoy amazing coastal scenery with either pure wilderness or a cottage, a luxurious inn or a rental home nearby.
