Prince Edward Island National Park

Location:

Supervised Beach: Yes

Discover extensive walking trails, boardwalks and a paved multi-use trail for cycling. Meander across floating boardwalks and along field edges and hedgerows, through varied coastal terrain, from saltwater marsh to Acadian forest. Marvel at the spectacular vistas and varied species of birds and wildlife.

Of course, the park is renowned for its beaches. The beautiful dunes are protected areas that are critical to ecosystem health. Dune grass, that holds dunes in place, is sensitive to trampling; only walk in designated areas. Beaches are also nesting areas for the endangered Piping Plover; pets are not permitted in summer.
