Cavendish Beach National Park

Location: Green Gables Shore

Supervised Beach: Yes

Cavendish Beach, with its signature views of rugged, red sandstone cliffs, is world-renowned for its connection to author L.M. Montgomery and her novel ‘Anne of Green Gables’. Spend a memorable day swimming, building sand castles and soaking up some vitamin D. Return as the sun sets for a stroll along the water’s edge. You’ll daydream about your Cavendish Beach days long after the sand between your toes has washed away.

At the main beach entrance, there is safe and designated parking, accessible washrooms, beach wheelchairs and mobility mats.

An entrance fee applies at PEI National Park locations.
