Swimming and Beach Activities

Ultimate Beach Experience

Ready for a little fun in the sun? PEI National Park is famous around the world for its spectacular beaches, but that’s just the start! Kids will love our all-new Discovery Dome where they can get up close and personal with a lobster in the touch tank! Ready to build some waterfront property? Bring the family and join renowned sand sculptor and art teacher Maurice Bernard to learn the tricks of the trade for building spectacular sculptures in the sand. Finish off the day at Oceanview where the setting sun paints the red stone cliffs of Cavendish in colours you’ll see here and nowhere else.
