WhitePoint Beach Resort 2021

We traded in our annual PEI vacation for WhitePoint Beach Resort the last 2 years and we have no regrets! We LOVE PEI and will most definitely be returning at some point but for this time in our lives WhitePoint has been such a great pairing.



Last year we decided to make the switch based on the Covid situation and we had such a ball we decided to do it again this year and make it 4 nights stay vs last years 3! (we had tried to extend our trip to 4 nights last year too but they were all booked up)

The first great thing about WP is how close it is to home but the far away feel. 
Elliott is great in the car but can sometimes feel car sick (nothing gravol can't handle but still not fun for him) the girls can be hit or miss depending on how tired they are (and won't fall asleep!) etc. 

A tiny 1.5 hours to our destination is perfection!

We like to stay in Cavendish when we go to PEI, because it has everything!! SO fun!!
but with the kids ranging from 1.5-7 it can be tougher to find something that we all like doing all day. 
Ex: Elliott will go to the amusement parks in Cavendish from dawn to dusk but that same plan won't fly with Nilah.

Another thing we love about WP: the Beach is fun for all ages, all day long! (if you're us! hahaha WE LOVE THE BEACH)

Our first day at WhitePoint, we were in a giant heat wave, like, 40+ degrees!!
We arrived to our destination right around the 3pm check in time and immediately hit the waves.

We left everything at the cabin, dropped our phones, pulled on our swim suits and I can honestly say that first day is some of my most favourite memories from my entire time of being a mom.
The smiles on the kids faces are something I don't ever want to forget.

Sandy everywhere, frizzy haired, sunscreen smelling, smiles exposed from ear to ear and laughter barreling down the length of the beach.

We all went in the ocean, the water was clear blue and the waves were the perfect size.
Nick and I took turns being in the ocean with the older 2 and Nilah frolicked in the sand, building hills and digging holes for hours upon hours.

I remember it was shortly after 3 when we hit the sand and at 5pm I started looking at my Fitbit. 
We didn't take our phones to the beach, a good choice but man, I hope I can remember those smiles and laughs. I have a horrible memory, its dull and weak and I truly feel like I have something wrong with me because its so hazy.

 My sisters have the exact same thing so I don't know if that makes me lucky because we are all in this together and its 'normal' for our family or if that makes it worse because it means I will forever be forgetting all this magical moments and there's no real reason why other than bad genes. 

I remember looking at my watch then but we didn't go home to our cabin until well after 6pm.

We all slept well that night; and every night! 
I couldn't keep my eyes open past 10:30 every night of vacation, which is so strange for us!
Nick and I are night owls and when at home rarely climb in bed before midnight.

The next day was a similar experience, we ordered breakfast to our room, I did yoga by the ocean with Whitepoints yoga instructor. 
 
We went to the big cabin where they hosted a paint class for the kids to paint with sponges. 

Then we hit the beach!



Between all the fun we would feed the bunnies.
We saw many more bunnies this year than last!
They were always outside our cabin and we were in the cabin next door last year so they must have had a bunny spike in 2021!

Nilah LOVED the cabin phone, she would not stop "talking" on it.
We had to keep it unplugged most of the stay. 








We went to supper in Elliot's Dining Hall (that's what its called, Elliot's :)) 3 times total, although the first night they lost our reservation and well, it was quite the upset, mostly me: I am a drama queen. 

It was just shocking because they had our other 2 reservations (we heard they lost a couple of reservations this night) and it was smack dab in the middle of supper time after a day on the ocean and we had got all dressed up for our big first supper out.  

We tried to sit at the bar but we weren't allowed to sit together because of our family size, and they suggested we sit on the sofas in the lounge but there's no way the kids could eat on a sofa (there were a lot of younger workers at WhitePoint this year. I think that's great!! but I don't know that any of them had kids as they were very young kids themselves and I laughed to myself, no way would a 2 year old eating on a couch be a good idea LOL).

 We were hungry and exhausted, it was Canada Day so everything was closed or booked at capacity. 

We decided to leave and take a drive, we tried a place = booked.

Then we ended up at Seaside Seafoods, a little take out spot just a few minutes passed WhitePoint.
Fantastic Food!!! SUPER busy and by the time we got home we were well into the 9 o'clock and a little sour.

I'm telling you all this because its what happened and we were sad about it but I made a choice not to talk about it on insta stories.



Partially because I was barely on my phone while on vacay lol
and also because it was no ones fault, it was just a bummer, a mistake and it was ok!
It felt sucky in the moment, it would have been easy to make an insta post about but in the scheme it was nothing.

Well lo and behold the next night at our booked supper at Elliot's restaurant we found out after we ate that our entire meal was going to be comped!

This was our first big meal and we went all out, I had wine, Nick had a beer (this is 'all out' for us LOL), we were going to get dessert. 

The waitress came over around dessert time and let us know the GM recognized us and he felt so bad about the night before he was comping the meal and sends his apologies.

We were able to chat with him afterwards and he said he was looking for us the night before and was going to order in a pizza or something but we hustled out so fast he missed us. 

This gesture meant SO MUCH!

We had been bummed out but decided not to let it ruin the vibe (I had also had a moment with an exploding kettle in our cabin, so we were kind of bad vibin' the day before. LOL a story for another time!)

In this moment I was so glad we had kept the experience to ourselves, glad we decided the good vibes were the theme and we carried on the rest of the vacay having the BEST time!

(I know I told you now but.. its a part of the story.. loll)



The next day the rain started and it was colder, no ocean on these last two days but we did book the indoor pool! The outdoor pool was too chilly so we skipped that all together but we booked the indoor pool
for at least, 3-4 sessions and the kids had a BALL.

We blew HUGE bubbles in the outdoor area, hosted by WP of course and the kids went crazy for it!! 
We stayed almost the entire hour and every one of the kids was living their best lives!

Elliott popping all the bubbles, Noelle chasing them, Nilah blowing them (the ocean wind technically blew them so it was easy haha).










We wandered down to the ocean every day, rain or shine.
We played in the sand and strolled near the crashing waves.




The final day came and we had to check out by 11am, we went for one last swim in the pool from 9:30-10:30. We packed as fast as we could and we were all so sad to leave. 

The kids were pretty much devastated to leave, Noelle said she wasn't going and Elliott asked how much it would cost to stay there every night of the year. 

Thinking of it now, only a few days later.. I have to say this was our best vacation yet.
I don't know if its because the kids are getting a bit older and they can play independently while having thoughts on what they would like to do next and they can pretty much 'go' as long as we can! 
Nap time is only an issue with Nilah these days and she's pretty flexible with it. 

Plus the pure joy they emit is contagious, the running, skipping and hopping to and from every event. 
Something as simple as the ocean and some bunnies makes them giddy; at night Nick and I watched old DVD's that WhitePoint keeps in the rec space and sipped wine while listening to the crackle of the fireplace and waves crashing off the rocks outside our door. 

Already counting down to next summer!

  1. I have always wanted to go to White Point Beach Resort. A few summers ago my best friend and her husband went and they loved it. I've lived in Nova Scotia for almost 25 years and have never gone. I think we tend to overlook things in our own provinces. I have been to the Liverpool area and have gone to Carters Beach in Port Mouton but never White Point. It looks beautiful!

  2. My wife came to me one day and said she needs a divorce, She said she was in love with someone else and was tired of the marriage. she filed for a divorce and we left each other but I couldn't sleep, eat or drink, I was heartbroken and started seeking for help online, I saw different testimonies of people appreciating Lord Bubuza for helping them in restoring their relationship so I contacted Lord Bubuza on WHATSAPP: +1 505 569 0396, I told him my problems and he promise to help me with his spell too. He said my wife will come back begging within 12 to 16 hours after he has finished the casting of the spell. I provide his requirement and did as he instructed me. I was shocked when my wife came crying and begging me on her knees to forgive and accept her back. Lord Bubuza is a man of his word contact him for help via WhatsApp: +1 505 569 0396 or via e-mail: lordbubuzamiraclework@hotmail.com or via website: https://lordbubuzamiraculouswork.com
