After taking in the main Cavendish beach we decided to explore a bit fiurther down the beach by way of the Dunelands Trail. A pleasant half hour walk at most one way. Wash rooms and vending machine at the end.

The best part of the trail was walking on the bridge across the lake. There is so much wildlife to see on either side, even though I couldn’t name the creatures.

What a stunning, serene trail walk! My husband and I ventured out to not only see the Lake of Shining Waters, but also to get to the beach. This trail is a perfect way to start the day and enjoy gorgeous scenery.

I believe so. The trail doesn't actually go on the beach or over the dunes, but on a designated path so you can't harm anything. Part of the trail is a boardwalk across the lagoon.
