To really enjoy this park, you must visit just before sunset and stay for the whole show...Watching the sun go down over the water is a holy experience. And the best part of the show is after the sun actually goes down, watching the sky change colors. There's nothing like it -- each night is different. It's amazing. And we... More

Stayed for 3 nights at the Cavendish campground on a site right on the ocean, which was really beautiful. No privacy between those sites, but others have trees around - we wanted the view so didn't care. Bathrooms are a bit of a walk, but just fine - very clean like all Canadian parks! There is a laundry house and... More

Don't skip the visitor center, compact but loaded with information and things to be learned about wildlife, vegetation and the rare type of dunes. The boardwalk mostly floats, great views of the lake and marshes. We found leopard frogs in the mud at the far end. Use the handrail if others are walking on the boardwalk... it floats therefore it... More

I camped here when I was very young and one thing I remembered was how beautiful it was. I was finally able to return with my wife and daughter and was not disappointed. We camped at one of the oceanview spots at Cavendish campground for one night. We were able to wander up and down the beach and the "squeaking"... More

We set out for a visit of harsh coastline as a variation on our other Canada experiences to date. The Park dud not let us down. Magnificent views over beaches and coastline pounded by the waves. Worth a visit - take a bicycle as there are plenty of easy tracks to follow.

Visited the museum/center first then on to the hike out to the dunes. Level path, clean and well marked, plenty of benches for resting. Came across the floating bridge over Bowley pond and up over the dunes (designated areas only). Beautiful, serence and peaceful. Visitor center full of info on the history of the dunes, the furst natives and the... More

We stayed two nights at the Cavendish campground with a site overlooking the ocean. It was a little chilly during our visit, so we were not able to swim. The sunsets were exquisite. The sites were a bit close together but the facilities were clean and well stocked and our site had a fire pit and picnic table. Campground/national park... More

We drove the entire length of the East and West Parks. First thing we noted was the quality of the road, which is vastly superior to the normal roads in PEI. The signage is excellent for identifying points of interest along the route. Parking is abundant at most points of interest, especially today, midweek after the schools return. The park... More

Beautiful scenery everywhere you turn. We started at Greenwich. It was a little buggy out...lots of mosquitoes from the car park to the bridge over the pond, but once you reach the sand...just beautiful! The beach was clean and missing all of the seaweed that you'll find near Dalvay by the Sea. We did spot jellyfish but they were few... More

My family and I visited this park in July. We had a great time and were able to capture many breathtaking photos. The red sand was something I had never seen before. We would return.
