PEI National Park
Miles of sand dunes, barrier islands, sandstone cliffs, wetlands, and forests. The beaches of Cavendish and the Dune Shores are part of Prince Edward Island National Park. The Park offers walking trails and fascinating interpretive programs on beach ecology, geology, evolution, wildlife, and archaeology. The road through the park leads you to a choice of many access points to the beach which offer a safe place to park and walkways to the water, with supervised beach and swimming area.
The National Park is also home to Green Gables House and Dalvay by the Sea National Historic Sites. Green Gables is the farm that inspired the setting of the classic novel Anne of Green Gables. Dalvay by the Sea was constructed in 1896 as a summer home by a wealthy American industrialist. It now serves as a hotel and dining room.
