4) Singing Sands, Prince Edward Island

Singing Sands Beach made it onto our list of the best beaches in Canada not because of its size, or its facilities or even the quality of its sand but for its unique sound. Yes, Singing Sands located at Basin Head Cape in Prince Edward Island in Canada does exactly what its name implies, it sings. A bizarre aural phenomenon that scientists are still working towards fully understanding, singing sand occurs on quartz sand beaches that contain silica where the grains are spherical and a very specific diameter in size. Although it didn’t make it onto the final list Singing Sands beach was recently shortlisted to be part of Canada’s Seven Wonders.
