Cymbria to Dalvay
21 km, 6 to 8 hours, rated easy to moderate. Mostly flat terrain with a few rolling hills.
A road walk in the Park, with great Gulf views. Lots of opportunities to beach walk.
As you continue you will re-enter the National Park through the Brackley entrance and walk on the trail following the Gulf Shore Parkway right through Covehead, Stanhope, and finally Dalvay, site of the White sands Hotel in the Sullivan Films production of Anne of Green Gables.
Continuing through some of the most beautiful beach towns on the Island, you will have the option to road or beach walk through the National Park. You may want to have your swimsuit handy so that you can take a dip off the North Shore at either Brackley or Stanhope beach. As you arrive in Dalvay, you’ll have the opportunity to visit the historic Dalvay By The Sea Hotel and enjoy a lovely meal, as the royals have done. As a part of their royal honeymoon tour, Prince William and Kate, Duchess of Cambridge visited Dalvay By The Sea in the summer of 2011.
