Cavendish Beach, Cavendish
(4.5/5 based on 550+ reviews on the web)
Hike, swim, or stroll at Cavendish Beach, a long stretch of coastline within a national park. Extending for 8 km (5 mi), the broad natural sand beach offers a variety of car-accessible points with supervised swimming spots. Dip into the clear blue waters, warmed by the Gulf stream, or trek along the interpretive nature trails to learn about the local ecology. Backed by red sandstone cliffs and dunes, the coastal area has an auburn glow to it. Grab a drink or ice cream from the onsite shop, and rent a beach chair to relax and take in the view. A paved path above the beach makes for scenic jogging. Make Cavendish Beach a part of your Cavendish vacation plans using our Cavendish itinerary maker.

  • This is a nice beach that isn't over crowded. The whole province of PEI is very charming.The sand is silky soft. It feels like a retro-province. (From a simpler day and age.) 
  • This is such a beautiful beach. Most everything was closed in the area when we were there but we were able to drive right into the park to the beach. We had great weather so we're able to put our feet...  more »
  • Cavendish beach is part of the natural park of PEI which includes 3 separate areas (all on the northeast coast) and as always, you can go with a single entrance ticket in and out at will (as long as you do during the day). You enter the Park and you can leave your car in the set points and then set off on foot. Cavendish beach is just 2 steps from one of the parking lots. It is a beautiful beach in red clay and can be accessed via trails to walk or rest while admiring the ocean.
