Prince Edward Island has some of the world's most beautiful beaches. In 2005 Travel and Leisure Magazine readers voted PEI the #1 North American Island and one of the top 10 Islands in the world.

Greenwich National Park (see below) (5 minutes) and East Point (40 minutes) are both superb spots to take the binoculars.

Greenwich Peninsula has become the focus of naturalists from around the world, with the 1999 opening of the new Greenwich, Prince Edward Island National Park. The Inn at St. Peters is the nearest available accommodation to these four hundred hectares of undisturbed sand dunes, wetlands and forests.

International visitors are fascinated by the massive parabolic dunes of Greenwich, constantly in motion and unique in North America. The National Park also provides access to spectacular north shore beaches. A state-of-the-art, interactive Interpretation Centre is located nearby.
