Venture into Prince Edward Island National Park to discover a striking natural landscape of wide beaches, sandy dunes, saltmarshes, and freshwater wetlands. The area was the inspiration for Lucy Maud Montgomery's "Anne of Green Gables" novels. Take relaxing walks along its numerous stretches of sand, or choose to trek one of the scenic hiking trails. Visit the Queen Anne Revival mansion, a National Historic site of Canada. Wandering the picturesque park--a designated Important Bird Area--you might see an array of bird species, as well as raccoons, red foxes, weasels, and beavers. See if you can spot the endangered piping plover skittering along the shore.

  • A beautiful area. The Anne of Green Gables park is nicely done and admission is inexpensive. Also make sure you check out the unique red cliffs. 
  • Prince Edward Island National Park is easily a highlight of the island. With stunning stretch of beaches, dunes, walking trails and beautiful East Coast scenery, this park is really worth the small entrance cost. If in Cavendish for any stretch of time, consider the weekly or season pass options. The most popular beach is the main Cavendish Beach, but driving along the coast it's easy to find smaller less crowded beaches as well. There's many trails as well for biking or walking. We did the homestead trail which is a great mix of forest, field, and ocean view.
  • Serene beach views, the sound of waves crashing, sea breeze. What more could you ask for? Awesome park with white sandy beaches. Most of the large beaches have good facilities for showering and changing. As a National Park you will pay an admittance fee...what's the big deal? It costs $$$ to maintain these beautiful parks folks!
  • Very beautiful park. Great beaches and lots of fun activities for the kids. Within easy driving distance of many attractive parts of PEI.
  • A must visit if you're on PEI. Beautiful walking paths and breath taking beaches. Singing sand can be found here!
  • Paid $20 to drive a highway along the coast. Some beautiful views and nice beaches but more expensive than Ontario's 407. Nicer, free beaches in Nova Scotia.
