We were here during the off season so we pretty much had the place to ourselves. The views along the beach and dunes were great, I would like to come back when the weather is warmer.

We did see a few lighthouses and some nice ocean views driving thru the park. Some nice beaches for a stroll. Not your idea of a rugged National Park, but enjoyable in areas.

My friend and I really enjoyed our day walking through the park. Great sand dunes, marsh lands, trees.... you name it we walked through it. That place is absolutely amazing!! Very peaceful! One of the best places to visit on the Island!

Have to say I was a little disappointed in all three of the coastal routes on PEI. WE hardly ever saw the coast but did find quite a few lighthouses that we viewed, some on private property and others just not open due to the time of year. But you have to drive some extra miles to find them. All... More

The panoramic view of the Atlantic (well technically this is not the wide-open ocean, it's the Gulf of St. Lawrence) was simply breathtaking as our tour bus drove through the park to the Cavendish Beach, and added to the picture was also the red-brown sandstone cliffs jutting out into the ocean along the island coast line. I came here with... More

It's a shame that this was the least visited park in the PEI National Park. It was simply peaceful & beautiful. We walked the floating boardwalks up the sand dune. Once you're at the top of the dune you can see the gulf on one side & all of the floating boardwalks on the other. You can walk down the... More

Prince Edward Island National Park is fairly narrow, as it runs along the northern coast of Prince Edward Island. However, what it misses in girth, it makes up for it beauty. This place is certainly work visiting. I was here in October 2014, so it wasn't exactly peak season. There wasn't anyone at any of the booths, so I entered... More

We toured the beach, braving the brisk wind to photograph and seek shells and sea glass. Because it was past the end of the season, we encountered very, very few people and had the beaches to ourselves.

We camped two nights this past September at the Cavendish camp ground. It is a wonderful campground. We have a pop up and had our choice of many nice sites. The park has a laundry, showers, flush toilets and you are steps away from a beautiful beach! Most sites have electric and water. Many nice drive thru sites for larger... More
