I do not understand why you have to pay to drive into this National Park. To get to Covehead Harbour before 6:00 you must pay $15.00........not amused when I'm heading there for a feed of fish and chips. Having said that, I do recommend the drive and stopping along the way to dip your toes in the Gulf of St.... More

Prince Edward Island National Park allows you to access beautiful coastal areas, but it was much busier with beach-goers than I expected. The Cavendish and Brackley areas of the park were crowded with people sunbathing on the beach, which distracted from the landscape that we wanted to see. I expected quiet, natural beaches, so I was surprised to find them... More

Having heard fabulous things about the park, my husband and I decided to check it out. We love sightseeing and looking at gorgeous scenery and when looking at the photographs, I definitely wanted to go. When we got there, we had to pay a toll to get in. Driving down the road, I didn't see very much scenery at all.... More

I've heard nothing but good things about pei namely this park so I decided to check it out. Along the shore there are some areas with red rock formations. These look beautiful in pictures. The red rocks are not everywhere though which made me rate the park average. I felt people gave the park a little more credit than it... More

This was the best experience of my life. the red beaches and blue sea made it absolutely breathtaking. You could just sit and listen the ocean hit the beach all day long. Well kept and easy to get to.

We were in New Brunswick for the week and just had to see PEI. The drive was wonderful, the vistas were magnificent, Brackley Beach was very pleasant. The sticker shock came when we had to pay the toll to leave the island...$45.00 for our Jeep Patriot.

The place is very interesting and the dunes and the beach (unsupervised) are great. However the trail is very exposed to the sun and on a hot day like it was when we walked it was very unpleasant. After arriving to the beach and enjoying the cold water, the way back was easier. Even our youngest (6 years old) said... More

Mid week visit to this beautiful section of the park. You have room to park and then a short walk to the beach over a wooden boardwalk. Hardly anyone there as it was windy and later in the day. We saw a fox and mate on the roadway which made it a neat experience. Looks like there is plenty of... More

This was a stop on our bus tour of PEI, and all of us ended up wishing it had been longer. We kicked off our sandals, rolled up our crops, and walked in the North Atlantic. It was amusing to find that the water was warmer than we are used to in Maine! An added plus were benches to sit... More

We came in May 2014, before the tourist season begins. The park has 3 portions, western, central, and eastern. We walked trails in the central and western portions of the park. Entrance is free before Father's day, hurrah! However, perhaps as a consequence, some of the bathrooms were locked. The visitor's center in Cavendish just down the road from the... More
