Prince Edward Island National Park is known for its beaches, sand dunes, and red cliffs. It’s also home to Green Gables, the inspiration for L.M. Montgomery’s beloved novel series, “Anne of Green Gables”. A visit to this picturesque national park offers visitors a chance to swim at the beaches, wander through the marshes on floating boardwalks, and cycle or walk along the cliffs. The park protects the beaches, sand dunes, and wetlands that are an important part of the ecosystem and a nesting habitat for birds. The park is divided into three areas along the island’s north shore in the province of Prince Edward Island, Canada. The Cavendish area is where you’ll find Cavendish Beach and the Green Gables Heritage Place, as well as sand dunes and the red rock cliffs. The Brackley-Dalvay Beach section is home to the Covehead Lighthouse and Covehead harbor, along with several beaches. It’s also where the Dalvay-By-The-Sea historic site is located. The last section is Greenwich, which is where many great trails are located, along with a floating dock. The park spans multiple areas of land including salt marshes, Acadian forest, sandstone cliffs, sand dunes, and beaches. While the national park is open year round, many of the activities are only open seasonally during the summer
