Prince Edward Island National Park

The PEI National Park extends along 40 kilometres of the Island’s north shore. Perhaps the foremost reason to visit lies in its beauty – an area filled with sand dunes, barrier Islands and beaches, sandstone cliffs, wetlands, and woodland featuring remnants of Acadian forest. There are many ways to enjoy the park: walk on one of its white-sand beaches, build a sandcastle with artist Maurice Bernard, grab a seafood lunch at Covehead Harbour, cycle the seaside Gulf Shore Way, rent a sea kayak in North Rustico, explore the Greenwich Dunes Trail or watch for birds like the spectacular bald eagle or the endangered piping plover. The park also encompasses national historic site Dalvay-by-the-Sea, an elegant Queen Anne Revival style home, and Green Gables Heritage Place, inspiration for the setting of L.M. Montgomery’s famous novel Anne of Green Gables.
