Cavendish Beach is a great beach for swimming, sun bathing and long walks. We have visited many times and are always impressed, except when it rains !! The weather can change from warm and sunny to cold, cloudy and windy in a matter of minutes. Keep you eye in the sky and beware of changing clouds. It's no fun getting wet and cold.
Overall a great place to vacation, lots for everyone to do and see.

I happened to visit Cavendish Beach sand dune area the day before the remnants of hurricane Irene hit the area. I enjoyed the dunes and the trails were well maintained. My visit was cut short due to torrential down pours but would definitely go back and explore further. This particular Beach has surf attendants and swimming area for the public to enjoy. Lots of parking and choices.

We were fortunate to be there in 'off-season' so didn't have to pay the entrance fee. Parks Canada should reduce the rates... after all, it only costs $4 to see each of Lucy Maud Montgomery's 3 REAL places ('Anne of Green Gables' house isn't real). Regardless, this is an amazing beach. Clean, expansive, soothing... no wonder this was one of Ms Montgomery's favorite beaches.

TIP: If you want to go to a FREE beach that is just as nice, and another of Ms Montgomery's favourites, go to Park Corner. Drive along Route 20 and turn down Cousin Shore Road to the beach. See the attached google map. And while you are in the area, the Anne of Green Gables Museum at Silver Bush is one of those 'REAL' places to lean more about this amazing author. Highly recommended.

We were a little annoyed at first that no one had mentioned that you need to pay to get in. We grudgingly paid our entry fee and parked the car. But as soon as we got to the boardwalk, we realized it was well worth the money.

The beach is impeccably clean and there's plenty of room to stretch out. The rich red sand makes for some outstanding pictures. It's the perfect place for a romantic walk. And when you get tired of the sand, there's a scenic trail off to the east.

This would be a great place to bring the kids for a day. Just don't forget the sunblock! We did.
