Venture into Prince Edward Island National Park to discover a striking natural landscape of wide beaches, sandy dunes, saltmarshes, and freshwater wetlands. The area was the inspiration for Lucy Maud Montgomery's "Anne of Green Gables" novels. Take relaxing walks along its numerous stretches of sand, or choose to trek one of the scenic hiking trails. Visit the Queen Anne Revival mansion, a National Historic site of Canada. Wandering the picturesque park--a designated Important Bird Area--you might see an array of bird species, as well as raccoons, red foxes, weasels, and beavers. See if you can spot the endangered piping plover skittering along the shore.

  • This isn't as impressive as some of the other national parks, but it is worth a visit too. Plenty of things to do and a surprisingly active beach scene.  more »
  • Red sand beaches along the shore with wind-sculptures dunes, salt marshes and inlets. Shore birds abundant.  more »

  • It's breathtaking, if you enjoy outdoors - this is the place to check out. Photographer can spend days capturing it, amazing sunsets and sunrises, hiking at it's best. Plenty of space to explore, different levels of hiking, but it's mostly flat, some trails can be long and during sunny days it can be a bit of problem.
  • We visited here just this passed summer and PEI was beautiful!! I cant wait to return!! This park was gorgeous!
