Forgot how beautiful it is!

Our visit was in May, although cool, the sun was shinning. Look out at the red sand and ocean takes your breadth away. Want to return someday.

Stopped by on a Sunday road trip. Even though it was the off season, the area is very pretty. I can imagine this being a great place to do wedding pictures.

One of the most famous beaches in the country, and it gets packed accordingly. It is part of the Cavendish experience, and while it is a nice beach, it suffers from overcrowding. There are better beaches elsewhere on the island, or even in the national park, and they won't be packed like this one.

This beach is a great visit however it is a bit disappointing that they charge you just to enter the area even if you are just going to the beach.

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.
