The park is the best stretch of the Island's North Shore. Lots of variety in the views and experiences. Do take your walking shoes and explore a trail, or walk barefoot along many of the beaches. Ideal also for cycling. Camping is available.

Wonderful park! We stayed in site 54 which was amazing. Private when compared to most other sites. Nice and close to the beach and bathrooms. The beach was beautiful. But beware of jellyfish! There's a nice playground right by the ocean for the little ones. The park is in a perfect location. Close to Green Gables, gorgeous beaches and pretty... More

We were looking at a couple of different sites in the Cavendish area and we are really glad we held out for the PEI National Park Campground. Really cool campers all around, great site right on the long sand beach, really clean. Definitely recommend

The greenwich Dunes are good to see how erosion and nature has moved the sand over the years. If taking the walking tour which I'd recommend- if you're wantibg to see the dunes and beach go the right trail not the loop. The loop is good if you're able and want to see the head of the dunes. More mosquitoes... More

I frequently go to the Cavendish and Brackley Beachs. I also ride my bike a couple of times a week on the bike bath near Cavenish (and on the Homestead trail). From the bike route you see fantastic cliffs and views of the ocean

The bike paths were well marked and very educational. They had interpretive signs that highlighted the history of the area. The beaches had good public washrooms and change rooms.

Take a few moments to go off the beaten path and you may just find a totally untouched white sand beach with the perfect view. A must see while in PEI

I did not find anything special about this park. My wife and I love beaches, particularly those in the Caribbean. The beach here is different. You must be a lover of beaches in colder climates to appreciate this beach. We actually saw people in June wearing bathing suits on the beach. I just don't get it!

Lots of great beach walking and combing. We saw a fox, coyote, and lots of sea birds just within 100 feet walking the beach.
