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 in since it was just not warm enough for a dip.

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.

Stopped at Cavendish Beach as part of the visit to the area, which included Anne of Green Gables heritage site. The beach is part of PEI National Park, access is free in 2017 with the Canada 150 celebration. The place includes old dunes, great cliffs a red-sand beach that goes for long stretches. The water is rather cold, so not very good for bathing

Beautiful beach and stalls for changing. Although the beach was closed to swimming due to the waves/surf and no lifeguards, you could still see how nice it would be of the weather was better. The walking trails around are also very nice

Cavendish is gorgeous.
Lots of tourists coming to check out the red sand ;)
The boardwalk to the beach is well kept and large enough for the crowds.
Keep in mind, there are many more gorgeous beaches on the island. Go out of your comfort zone and start exploring!
