Prince Edward Island National Park, Prince Edward Island
(4.5/5 based on 340+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • I have already reviewed other areas of great natural park of PEI but I can't find a specific area on Greenwich and its dunes, whereby I review here. In summary: is outstanding and just for that PEI is well worth a visit! You park in the parking lot and then walk along "the path of the dunes", about 5 Km return. initially the trail is pleasant but not hits, but just come towards the end, near the sand dunes, then it takes your breath away! A gorgeous landscape with this wooden floating walkway that meanders over the lagoon in the distance, the dunes and the contrasts of colors: blue water and sky, the white sand and the green of the grass and plants. The peace and tranquility that are not often found. Surely we were lucky, meteorologically speaking, but this place has really Bewitched.

  • 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!
