Teacup Rock at Thunder Cove Beach is one of the most photographed rock formations on Prince Island and has been there for decades. Teacup Rock is best seen early in the morning, when the water is calm and the sun is low in the sky. Teacup Rock is a sandstone formation that is extremely fragile.
Thunder Cove is 66 kilometres from Charlottetown via the PE-2W. Take the PE-20 exit toward Darnley from Kensington. Turn left on Lower Darnley Road, then right on Thunder Cove Road. It’s best to park along the beach’s 90-degree turn. Remember that because Thunder Cove is not a Provincial or National beach, there are no restrooms.
Well off the beaten path, but a must for PEI visitors to visit.
About Mike Adams
Mike’s mission is to encourage more diving in the Maritime province of New Brunswick. He also makes historical videos in addition to diving videos. This year, he’ll be documenting aviation crashes in the province of New Brunswick. In this province alone, there are over 300 recorded accidents, and he has teamed up with the Canadian Aviation Historical Society to record the history and stories of the pilots who perished in some of these crashes. Mike has also partnered with the “Hammond River Angling Association” to create a series of videos for them about salmon and the protection of one of our local rivers, the Hammond River.
Mike’s adventures will be accompanied by The Scuba News Canada, which will cover his work in the coming months.
