National Park
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 paradise of natural beauty, relaxing solitude and green/water as far as the eye. Ever since I came to this magical place that the background on my smartphone has become the Dunes National Park at Greenwich, portion of the National Park, an area with remarkable dimensions that will include a variety of paths. I was here last July, then in one of the warmer periods of the year but would be in ten people. The fresh air, the sea beyond wonderful. Water chilly but not impossible. While no suit I managed to take my bath and then there was you, the shoreline. Endless walks and more. I can say in all sincerity that you have made to Prince Edward Island National Park the best jogging in my life and I could go on for hours to run (without meeting a soul). In this "portion" of the Park is accessed via a long walkway over water. Then, here is the show of the sand dunes, then climb into the Chair the silence and nature. With already one week Canadian travel behind, at this place are entered literally ecstatic making me become one with the words of David Lee Roth that chanting: "This must be just like Livin' in paradise/And I don't want to go home".

  • 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.
  • I went for a morning run on the shorter 6k loop. Excellent trails. Well marked. Fantastic diversity of views and habitat over such a short distance.
  • A must visit if you're on PEI. Beautiful walking paths and breath taking beaches. Singing sand can be found here!
