Cavendish Beach, Cavendish

4.4
#1 of 47 in Parks in Prince Edward Island
Hike, swim, or stroll at Cavendish Beach, a long stretch of coastline within a national park. Extending for 8 km (5 mi), the broad natural sand beach offers a variety of car-accessible points with supervised swimming spots. Dip into the clear blue waters, warmed by the Gulf stream, or trek along the interpretive nature trails to learn about the local ecology. Backed by red sandstone cliffs and dunes, the coastal area has an auburn glow to it. Grab a drink or ice cream from the onsite shop, and rent a beach chair to relax and take in the view. A paved path above the beach makes for scenic jogging. You can plan Cavendish trip in no time by asking Inspirock to help create your itinerary.

  • Randomly came across this beach and it was so busy and was not expecting to have to pay but it turned out to be a great adventure can’t wait to go back and enjoy it longer.  more »
  • we went early in the morning so not yet the tourist crowd. You can walk a lot on the sand. Beautiful landscape with dunes and footbridges. Expect a wind break at the beginning of the season as a lot of chilly wind.
