Dalvay Beach – PEI National Park

Fit for royals and everyone else too, Dalvay Beach gained a wee bit of fame when Prince William and Duchess Kate visited it in 2011. They even enjoyed a lobster bake in the sand! Located just east of Stanhope Beach, Dalvay Beach features impressive sand dunes, gentle waters, and nearby bubbling brooks. Shorter in length than Brackley or Stanhope, Dalvay is nevertheless another jewel in the PEI National Park that offers a quiet escape from, well, everything.

Notably, this area of the park is also home to Dalvay-by-the-Sea National Historic Site. Located just across the parkway from the beach, this incredible building was once a summer home to an oil tycoon. Featuring luxurious and stunning Victorian architecture, the historic property now operates as a hotel and cottage property. The grounds are a treat to walk, and the hotel restaurant is well-known for offering a high tea experience. 

A reminder that pets are not permitted on the National Park beaches, in an effort to protect the endangered Piping Plovers that nest in the beach sand and dunes.
