The easternmost region of PEI National Park, Greenwich is home to Prince Edward Island’s largest sand dunes, including a rare, horseshoe-shaped parabolic dune system. Greenwich is rich with both natural and cultural history as a habitat to rare plants and animals and holding connections with French, Acadian and Mi’kmaq cultures. 

Trails at Greenwich are full of stunning views, including the ones surrounding the iconic floating boardwalk on Greenwich Dunes Trail - a treasure that should not be missed! 

Greenwich Beach is a jewel with its expanse of pristine, white sand. Low tide uncovers wide sandbars perfect for beach walks and ideal for exploration among the tidepools. There are washrooms and a picnic area for visitors along with surf guard services in July and August.

An entrance fee applies at PEI National Park locations from June to September annually.

Visitors are reminded that pets are not permitted on National Park beaches from April 1 to October 15 annually. Please plan ahead! 

LIFEGUARD NOT ON DUTY at this time. When beaches are UNSUPERVISED, visitors swim at their OWN RISK.
