Nice sandy beach & view of the dunes (not for walking on!) Plenty of parking and a walkway around the back of the beach off the road. Good picnic facilities and clean washrooms as well.

This is a good example, especially to American visitors, of the way a national park beach should be built and maintained. Clean, accessible, informative all apply.

Went here at the end of August. The day was incredible. Sun was shining. Water was warm. The trip in the water felt great on the skin. I'm used to swimming in lakes. This was my first time actually visiting the ocean. Absolutely loved it!...More

Ride your bike or walk through many km of trails, self guided walking tours, clean restrooms and cafe, and not to mention gorgeous red sandstones and sandy beaches. Take the drive to see this place, you will be glad that you did😍

This beach is just too gorgeous with all the red sand & cliff views. I just can't explain it enough to really convey how awe-struck I was with the views from this beach. Water for September was warm and surprising! I only put my toes...More

A very pleasant swim at Cavendish Beach is possible once you make your way over the rocky beach and into waist deep water. Water was warm but you had to keep away from jellyfish. Would have loved to have stayed longer in the warm water.

Why not check it on Google? I am not sure and would not want to send the wrong information. The Cavendish area is very beautiful and you certainly will enjoy it.
