To the east of Cavendish, we stopped at North Rustico Harbour Lighthouse in North Rustico and Covehead Harbour Lighthouse within the Prince Edward National Park (fee to access the park). Across the street from Covehead is a small grouping of shops where you can rent a bicycle if you want to further enjoy the park's offerings.

Exploring the island, we came across some fantastic places you must try if you ever get the chance. Of course, there's all of the Anne of Green Gables and Lucy Maud Montgomery sites to visit, including:
- Avonlea Village
- Green Gables Heritage Site
- Anne of Green Gables Museum
- L.M. Montgomery's birthplace, childhood homesite, and grave
- Dalvay by the Sea, used in the movie
