Love Greenwich!
Aug 2021 • Friends
Love Greenwich! This is definitely one of my favourite places to visit on the island. Beautiful hiking trails and beach area. Interpretation centre is great also although I’m sad to hear it may be closing - my kids and I enjoyed going through when they were younger. It is a clean accessible area with washrooms and stunning views. I would highly recommend!

Skip the interpretation site
Jul 2021 • Family
The interpretation site was disappointing. There were four employees sitting behind a desk the whole time, one without a mask, another playing cell phone games, and two others just chatting loudly about life. Zero engagement or attempt to talk about the exhibits. We felt like we were very unwelcome. The only time they was to say good bye. Not a typical national park visit.

love the boardwalk trails and the views are amazing! It's a great place for a picnic, but not much else to do other than walk. Would definitely go again soon!

Biking in Prince Edward Island
Aug 2019
My wife and I biked in the National Park. It was very scenic and interesting. We took the floating bridgeway from the park to the seashore. The seashore was beautiful.

Super nice boardwalk experience, bringing you closer than you ever imagined to nature!
Sep 2019
When we arrived, it was just after Hurricane Dorian had swept away much of the beach and some of the trees of the world famous Greenwich Beach National Park near St. Peter's Bay, Prince Edward Island. This magical place was nearly deserted by this time in mid-September, and the cooler weather kept all but the hardiest souls out of the sea. Sadly, some of the infrastructure of the park was damaged, but the heroic efforts of park employees had already re-opened the main trails and boardwalks that access dunes and most of the beaches. Our weather improved such that one sunny, mild day, we felt it was almost like summer out there. Birds sang in the trees, squirrels "posed" for photos, and the subtle roar of the waves behind the dunes played over the wind in the trees. The folks at the interpretive center were very helpful, and the displays of local history and ancient history helped make our time here come alive. The facility is above expectations for it's convenience and services.

Special Place - Greenwich Beach & Sand Dunes
Sep 2019
Must do! Beautiful landscape, great walk. Many people were on the first part of trail which is a dirt/gravel path that runs along the bay, pass mussel farms, through a wooded area - lovely, but doesn't compare to what follows...the floating boardwalk. This winds through a beautiful open lush pond/marsh area - bright blue water and sky contrasts against bright green vegetation. Less people on the boardwalk than dirt path which was nice - enhanced the serenity of the area. At the end of the floating boardwalk is the entrance to the beach and sand dunes which are breathtaking. We spent about an hour walking and relaxing on the beach. Amazingly, very few people ventured onto the beach and no one walked the length of it so we had it to ourselves. Like much of PEI the natural beauty of this area is like no other. Don't miss this!

one of a kind, must do, best natural view on the island.
Aug 2019
Very long flat wide gravel walk to one-of-kind (on PEI) floating boardwalk over the dunes and to the ocean beach. Dragon flies everywhere means no mosquitoes which was great. Walk to inlet and walk to dunes Doable in 1.5 hours, but would recommend at least 3 hours to enjoy all 3 hikes. Nicely shaded picnic areas and latrines near trail head. Mostly suitable for stroller or bikes. Even if you bike, you can only take your bike half the way then walk.
