Prince Edward Island National Park

Prince Edward Island National Park is a 60-kilometre stretch of the Island's north shore. Home to Cavendish Beach, the Gulfshore Parkway and the breathtaking landscape of Greenwich, the national park brings you up close and personal with some of the Island's most iconic natural treasures. Whether it's a day at the beach, a night camping under the stars, or a cycle tour of the north shore coastline, PEI National Park offers something for everyone.


The park is divided into three regions (Cavendish-North Rustico, Brackley-Dalvay, and Greenwich), which are separated by bays and not directly connected by highways.

Skmaqn–Port-la-Joye–Fort-Amherst National Historic Site (Rocky Point)

Originally established by the French in 1720, Skmaqn–Port-la-Joye–Fort Amherst commemorates the first permanent European settlement on Île Saint-Jean (today Prince Edward Island). After falling to British forces in 1758 it became the site of a major deportation of French and Acadian settlers. A Grand Alliance was forged here between the Mi'kmaq and French - one of only two locations in North America where this was celebrated annually with speeches, gifting and feasting. The fort’s grassy ruins are still visible, and interpretive panels explore its rich history. The grounds also offer superb views of the surrounding countryside and Charlottetown Harbour.

East Point Lighthouse (Elmira)

Built in 1867, this lighthouse is one of the Island’s last manned lighthouses. It is also one of the busiest aids to navigation for both deep sea traffic and the inshore and offshore fishery. The light station consists of a lighthouse, cottage, fog alarm, radio, beacon station and an oil shed. As one of the Island's itinerant lighthouses, the East Point Lighthouse has been moved several times due to poor positioning of the light and continuing erosion of the coastline. Today, the old fog alarm building houses crafts and an interpretive centre.
