National Park Nature / 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. Put Prince Edward Island National Park into our Stanhope tourist route planner to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Stanhope.

  • One of a kind beaches. Ocean was beautiful for swimming in August. Nice place to go and have a picnic and get some great pictures. For bird lovers there were some great bird nesting sites as well.  more »

  • Beautiful views of the Gulf of St Lawrence. Excellent bike paths well suited for all ages. Sandy beaches. Our favourite is Dalvey Beach as it is not crowded, even at the height of tourist season.
  • Beautiful views!! Camped at Cavendish Beach, be aware that there is no privacy on the camp sites, however the sites are within view of the ocean. Nice beach and updated shower facilities.
  • My husnand and I didn't really know what to do or expect from this National Park at first. Soon after arrival, we learned that you can rent a bicycle and bike along the coastline. It was so peaceful with breeze to keep you cool enough and quite flat road that won't tire you out so much. Along the way, you can drop by beautiful Stanhope Beach and many other attractions. Also, there is a small seafood snack place right before you cross a small bridge where we had the best fish n' chips! This is a peaceful, quiet place surrounded by endless beautiful scenery with open sky. If I have a chance to visit PEI again, I would definitely come here again!i
  • Relive the Anne story through the trails. Great tour guides. Jaw dropping scenery. Free admission for 150th Canada birthday.
  • Miles and miles (or Kilometers and Kilometers) of pristine beaches. And in 2017, the National Parks in Canada are FREE! Go enjoy.
