Although the Confederation Trail may get a lot of publicity, the bike trails through the PEI National Park get my vote. There are actually two "pieces", one which starts in the Brackley Beach area and runs east to Dalvay. We looped down from there and came back on highway 6. The second route left from North Rustico and went to... More

We saw many lovely beaches in PEI, but this was one of the loveliest. The visitor center and boardwalk are very nicely done, blending into the countryside. We took a hike; about 4 miles RT IIRC, through fields and along the bay, then into the woods and over a curving boardwalk crossing a pond, then up a sand dune to... More

Can't say I've ever stayed at a campground where not all sites had fire places. What is camping without a fire? luckily the place was empty and we were able to pay $10 extra a night for a site with a fire pit. Great beach, hit and miss camp sites (ours was good), careful lots of poison ivy. We'd go... More

The coastal NP's are incredibly beautiful. The season and our preferences mean that spending time on a beach is just not high on our interest list. The beaches were small and plentiful in the NP in Cavendish . A bonus of travel in the cusp season is that all the parks entrance booths were boarded and allow free entrance. It... More

You can't visit PEI and not drive the 3 scenic drives - the first from Cavendish to North Rustico, the 2nd from Brackley to Delvay and the last the parabolic sand dunes at Greenwich. My husband and I did all 3 in one day, primarily because we didn't plan on stopping at the beach to walk or swim but just... More

DEFINITELY a worthwhile stop for their 12 minute free video. You would pay lots of $$ to see a theater like that anywhere else. It's not only "surround sound" but "surround video" as well. Observation tour is also worthwhile for great photos.

We camped at the Cavendish section of PEI National Park for 6 nights. We camp every summer and so far have tried a different location each year – this is the first that we would absolutely return to, no hesitations! Overall this was the best camping experience we’ve ever had. We stayed on site #2 - the bathroom close to... More

A view that never stops.......... this is a "must" on the list of visits while on PEI. A bit of walking but not much and the trail is so easy. It is busy on the trails but if you walk down to the beach and down...there is nobody. The views are amazing so take along a good camera. Also, wear... More

there are several beaches along the PEI National Park. We stopped at Brackley (to use the facilities and change room, and to look at the beach - which had quite a few people) then at Stanhope, which was nice, but had too much seaweed and people.. beautiful view. However, Dalvay was the gem of them all.. less people, and such... More

My wife and I spent a week in PEI and two days down on the beach. It was a little cold but warm enough to go in the water. The beaches are long and seemed to have lots of room even if I could imagine a busy day. It seems to cater a lot to young families and older couples.... More
