    Excellent Park
    This is a beautiful Canadian National Park. We spend a lot of time in National Parks of the US and this ranks right up there with some of the best. This is a lovely place to visit and well worth your time. PEI is a special place. My only regret is not spending more time here.

    Great park, especially the Anne of Green Gables site!
    I reviewed the Anne of Green Gables site, Avonlea, elsewhere, but I do wish to say it is a must see and very impressive. We also visited the Oceanview site in the park, and it contained nice views and hiking trails. Very nice!

    Great Beaches
    Entered at Brackley Beach and drove towards Covehead Harbour. For such a great, almost wild place there are nowhere near enough parking places along the road. Then when you get to the car park at Covehead Harbour, you have to pay another $2 to a really grumpy woman on top of the $16.75 entrance fee. Lovely beaches though.

    This park was my favorite attraction in Prince Edward Island.
    North Rustico Beach and Cabendish Beach had the classic red cliffs and red sand. The Green Gables House was not open for tours, but I was able to hike around its grounds. The beaches were very cold in November, but I bundled up. I was able to take a scenic drive along the Atlantic Ocean. Everything was free when I went to this park.

    Nature at it's best
    We stayed at the Cavendish Campground, just outside of Cavendish, PEI. I fell in love with the entire location almost immediately. The campground itself is located just outside of town. There was a main gate house for checking in, which was fast and efficient. The park itself may look a little rough, but with all the storms that go through, there has been some damage to the flora and fauna, but its the location that is incredible. We had a site that was very close to the ocean and the beach. Waking up every morning to the sound of the waves, and the smell of the ocean just can't be beat. The park we clean, and well maintained (again, there was some storm damage, but that's nature), laundry facilities, thoughtful lot layout and nice sites for any size camping equipment. The town itself was incredible. A complete Florida beach feel to it, on PEI. Loads of shopping and attractions just minutes from this location. I would highly recommend this location to anyone wanting to explore PEI and see what there is to offer. Stunning views, friendly people...an amazing Canadian location that I will go to again.

    Beaches and Lighthouses
    My husband and I explored this park while in PEI. Much of the park was closed at the end of April, including the visitor centers. However, we still were able to see a few things such as lighthouses, red shores, and beaches. Hardly any traffic was a definite plus too.

We had our Canada Parks Pass so made a quick stop at Greenwich Beach. The boardwalk was nice to walk to the water. There are bathrooms there. Nice place and well kept.

With a drizzle, we headed to PEI National Park's lookout. With a water temperature of 16°C, it would take some courage to swim in the sea.
On September 23, 2022, Fiona’s ferocious forces left an unprecedented wake of destruction across the province. There is a significant erosion of the park’s shoreline, including sand dunes due to the storm.

One of the neat things that their park has is a floating boardwalk that takes you through a marsh so that you can see all of the wildlife and plant life around you without destroying it. Make sure to bring bug spray.
You can walk up to the top of the Dune on the designated path and then down onto the beach to take some lovely pictures. It was empty with the day that we went there.

Some of the best beaches in the world on Prince Edward Island, The island basically has a beach around the whole Island. Just drive towards ocean on any road there will be a hidden beach. The National park is great although busy so get there early for a good spot.
