The best beach in all of Canada

I've been to Cavandish several times, the last time was just before the Victoria Day long weekend. And luckily the weather was nice and warm, and we had the beach all to ourselves (of course the water was cold). If you go in the summer, keep an eye for the red jelly fish. They are all over the place on... More

This is a lovely place to visit, but be warned - it can get very crowded in the summertime. Try to go just before or after peak season.

Cavendish beach is one of the best in the area. Not too crowded and a great beach all around. Will be there again in the near future.

This is a nice beach that isn't over crowded. The whole province of PEI is very charming.The sand is silky soft. It feels like a retro-province. (From a simpler day and age.)

This is such a beautiful beach. Most everything was closed in the area when we were there but we were able to drive right into the park to the beach. We had great weather so we're able to put our feet in the ocean. Just gorgeous and worth going to.

We enjoyed a day at the beach and walking/running the trails. The sand is abundant, the shoreline is gorgeous and the water was refreshing. What a great day! The onsite facilities are excellent with changing rooms and washrooms close by.

Went here because of the Anne of Greene Gables movies and were not disappointed. Rock and sand beaches are very picturesque. The Green Gables home that inspired Montgomery, is very close by and well worth the visit.

Mid Ocober and the weather was 18 degrees. Dunes, shoreline were amazing. Many tourists took their shoes off to walk. Along the beach!

We were here yesterday on a sunny but cool day (our kids were crazy enough to just wear swimming trunks though!). Beautiful, clean sandy beach with views of cliffs to the east and loud surf. At one point we amazingly had the place to ourselves! As the season ends quite early, be warned that there are no toilets/facilities open this... More
