PEI National Park - Cavendish Beach
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 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 Prince Edward Island National Park locations.
National Park Beach Safety
Lifeguards are on duty at PEI National Park locations between July and Labour Day. They aim to post surf conditions each day by 11 am.
