Map of Cavendish

Welcome to Cavendish!

Located in the heart of Anne's Land, the north coast of Prince Edward Island, Cavendish was the hometown of and setting for Lucy Maud Montgomery's beloved Anne of Green Gables books. It's no surprise then that Cavendish is home to the Green Gables House, the site of Montgomery's childhood home, and Avonlea village—an historical amusement park. The area is also famed for Cavendish Beach, whose white sand beaches and dunes cover nearly 40 km (24.8 mi) of coast in Prince Edward Island National Park, a bird-watcher's paradise. Outdoor activities in Cavendish generally move at a gentle pace. Hiking and walking tours are extremely popular and the region boasts several champion golf courses. At a slightly faster clip, bicyclists criss-cross nearby national parks and sailing on the sea's water is a common sight. Other Cavendish attractions include the Cavendish Red Trolley, Cavendish Boardwalk, an amusement park, several museums, mini-golf courses and plenty of shopping.
