Paid to enter park around Delvay, as part of the Green Gables central coastal drive. Was intent on swimming, and our stop at Stanhope Beach area was fortituous, as their facilites (changing areas, showers, toilets) were some of the best I've seen. Walk to beach was on a boardwalk, but short. Beach was not white sand, but reddish (OK). Some... More

This Park is a must see/experience! We drove to the Brackley Beach access around 5:30 p.m. And oh my, totally didn't expect the warm wind, the golden red colours, nor the sand dunes that are at a minimum 15 - 20 meters above sea level in places! The beach goes on for many km, should be called long beach. Red... More

PEI National Park has many beaches and scenic areas, but my favorite (BY FAR) was Greenwich Dunes. The trail includes a very long floating boardwalk and a pristine beach with "singing sands" is at the end of the trail. The views are absolutely gorgeous. Cavendish Beach and Brackley Beach are popular areas so they get quite crowded in the afternoon.

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
