A great natural beauty in a slightly different colour pallet

We drove through the park and spent a little time on each of the beaches. They are impressive because they are large, clean and coloured red by the red sandstone and clay. Framed by the light green grasses and vegetation and it makes for an great photo op. Facilities are adequate and there is an impresive walking and bicycle path... More

West of the main PEI park, on St. Peter Bay, is this one, dedicated to the parabolic sand dunes. There is a decent interpretation center at the entrance. For $3.90/adult, you can hike one of 4 trails--to Greenwich beach, St. Peter Bay ( with info on mussel farming), or to the dunes. Bring insect repellant, as the mosquitoes are large,... More

We visited a little early this year and probably the coldest weekend in May (May 22 and 23) with snow still on the ground, but that didn't deter us from enjoying the beautiful beaches, dunes and sights! We absolutely love birding in this area and caught sight of 5 Bald Eagles sitting on the beach between the Dunes as we... More

The dunes at Greenwich are beautiful, but one should be prepared to be devoured by mosquitos on the walk to the dunes. Come as covered as possible and use insect repellant. You will regret it if you do not.

The PEI National Park is a treasure and not to be missed on any trip to the island. We were blown away by the beauty of the coastline, and recommend stopping every chance you get because the coastline changes dramatically as the road goes on. There is biking, running, hiking trails (but bring BUG SPRAY because the mosquitoes will eat... More

We went at the beginning of June and entry was free. We stopped by Cavendish Beach to enjoy the dunes and the ocean. We greatly enjoyed the beauty of the beach and spent much time walking it, collecting seashells, and taking in the scenery. Just a bit of advice, since it's the off season, National Park restrooms are closed. There... More

I stayed at both Stanhope and Cavendish on my trip to PEI. Both sites had great staff and accommodations were as expected from the online forms. Definitely remember to specify if you want electricity / water / etc. Cavendish was much more beautiful than Stanhope in my opinion. Book early (2-3+ months in advance) for the summer, especially if you... More

We drive through the park and stopped at every spot we saw, they were all beautiful views and/or beaches. Wish we had more time to do the trails along here, maybe next time!

"Anne of Green gables" was set here. Enough said!. The island certainly trades heavily on this connection and be that as it may, whose complaining? Its interesting how misconceived my ideas were about the place. I saw it as a rural backwater, unaware that it harbours some of Canada's best beaches and without a doubt an unparalleled park. You might... More
