Greenwich Beach is part of PEI National Park and is the least visited of all the Park’s beaches. That’s not to say it isn’t well loved. Greenwich Beach is one of those star attractions that Islanders try to keep for themselves. It has the largest sand dunes on the Island with boardwalks and trails that roll across the marshes and grass like something out of a storybook. The pristine sand seems to go on forever making it paradise for anyone who loves a long walk in the gentle waves.
Insider’s Tip: Pick up a map of the nearby walking trails when you visit the PEI National Park visitor centre. A good sunhat is recommended for longer walks as most trails are only partially shaded. Pack a beach lunch! The canteen serves snacks and cold drinks but a proper meal is a drive back to the town of St. Peter’s.
