Fodor's Expert Review Greenwich Beach

Prince Edward Island National Park Beach Fodor's Choice
Seclusion and stunning scenery is your reward for taking the walk to the beach here, and there are various access points involving varying amounts of walking (the shortest is from the parking lot at the end of Wild Rose Road). But take a longer hike along one of the Greenwich Dune Trail loops and along the way you'll enjoy wonderful views across the dune system and ponds, including sightings of the rich birdlife. Once there, the beach is an unspoiled expanse of fine pink sand that makes a curious sound beneath your feet. It's well worth stopping in at the Interpretation Centre at the entrance, too. Note: the dunes are extremely fragile, so keep to the beach, boardwalks, and marked trails. Pets are not permitted at any time. To access the beach, you need to pay a fee to enter the park. Amenities: lifeguards; parking (free); showers; toilets. Best for: solitude; walking.
