Cavendish is the best family destination for all ages! From beautiful golf courses, stunning beaches and friendly hospitality– we were never disappointed.
Want to know the best Cavendish Beach activities and attractions that will top any family vacation and make you the best Grandparent in your grandkids eyes? We’ve got some hints below!
10. Getting There
Getting to Cavendish, PEI was such an amazing experience in its own! We took the Northumberland Ferry to PEI – there was live entertainment, we watched the grandkids play on the deck and even enjoyed COWS Ice Cream. We can’t wait to take the Confederation Bridge home so we can get the true Island experience!
9. Cottage Life
With so many amazing accommodations to choose from – we couldn’t pick just one! The two weeks we spent in Cavendish we stayed in two different destinations. A cottage with a beautiful view in the heart of Cavendish Beach and a cozy cottage in nearby Stanley Bridge with tons of green space and a playground for the grandkids to play. With such great and friendly hosts, always looking to make your stay PEI perfect, we loved the cottage life.
We walked the trails – there are so many to choose from. Some were shorter, some were more challenging – but the grandkids loved it! We got to spend quality time with them enjoying nature – the best kind of time!
They’re not kidding when they call PEI Canada’s Food Island – and Cavendish Beach is no exception! With so many great places to try fresh PEI seafood, local delights and classic favourites – Cavendish is the best place to get something Nan and Pop love as well as the kids!
6. Summer Days
The sun was shining when we were in Cavendish – thank goodness you are surrounded by the beach! We could go for a quick swim at Cavendish Beach or enjoy the sun as the grandkids squealed with excitement at the amusement parks.
5. Boardwalks and more boardwalks
What’s a trip to Cavendish without stopping at the boardwalk – wait, there are two! Cavendish Boardwalk = shopping and eating. Mariner’s Cove Boardwalk = more family fun attractions for the kids! Local shops are scattered all around Cavendish to enjoy locally made products and food. We love all of our photos captured with our “I Love PEI” shirts.
You couldn’t talk about Cavendish without mentioning the beaches! You can walk miles, the scenery is beautiful, and best of all it’s not too crowded! We enjoyed a picnic on the beach, the kids swam safely in a life guarded area, and we made the biggest sandcastle my grandkids had ever seen!
3. Ice Cream
Okay, so maybe Ice Cream is a weird one to put on here but there are so many options! I think we had 90% of our meals out of a cone but it was so worth it – especially on warm days.
We snuck away to enjoy a round (or two) of golf. After all we are in Canada’s #1 golf destination. With the top golf courses Cavendish offers, we almost forgot to keep score because they were so beautiful! The kids joined us for a few rounds later in the week and loved learning how to play.
Cavendish has so many fun adventures around every corner, it’s hard to believe that this was the most relaxing vacation we’ve ever had! The scenery is so beautiful in every direction, it’s the perfect backdrop to a relaxing vacation and great way to make lifelong memories with our grandkids.
