Cavendish

Known to fans of writer Lucy Maud Montgomery as the setting of "Anne of Green Gables," Cavendish represents a top destination on Prince Edward Island. The charming beach town on the island's northern coast offers quick access to a long stretch of sand dunes, several world-class golf courses, and a number of kid-friendly theme parks. Few tours of Cavendish skip a stop at the Green Gables House, where the celebrated Canadian author spent her childhood. If you get tired of searching for places described in Montgomery's book, explore the beaches of the area's national park, an ideal place to walk, sail, swim, and bird-watch. Make the most of your holiday in Cavendish by finding out about its attractions and choosing what to see using our Canada online travel route planner .
