Peggy's Cove is a must-see if in Nova Scotia, or even nearby. The beauty of this area is well known to photographers and artists. The lighthouse sits on beautiful, fascinating rock formations. There is a restaurant very close and you can have a great meal while enjoying the great views.

The lighthouse might not be the main part of the view, but it is a great addition. The ocean and the rocks make for good Photo opportunities. When I visited, it was cloudy and foggy, so visibility was horrible and it was as pleasant as I could imagine it could be.

Definitely must see place. Special feeling being there... wind… the sea…. colors of the rocks and the sky… just fantastic. Great place to visit. Lots of activities around as well. Super good time to spend.

I have to admit that driving towards the lighthouse at Peggy's cove, my boyfriend and I were underwhelmed. I had seen many photos and been told that it's a "must see" for anyone visiting N.S. Needless to say the lighthouse itself was quite small and did not strike me as out of the ordinary from any of the other dozens... More

When we lived in Halifax, my husband always made it his tradition to get to Peggy's Cove on New Year's Day. We don't live there now, but do all go as a family to Peggy's Cove on New Years Day as our family tradition. What a great time - even if the weather is bad, it is a great experience.... More

The view and history of Peggy's Cove Lighthouse are amazing. Just remember if the rocks look dark they can be slippery. The ocean waves breaking on the point around the lighthouse offer some exciting pictures.

If you are ever in the Halifax area, please visit Peggy's cove. It is an extremely picturesque area and a perfect example of mother natures power. The sights, sounds and smells are stunning. Include this stop with many other coastal destinations along the south shore.

Everyone stops by the lighthouse at Peggy's Cove and you are encouraged to add this stop to you "bucketlist". The area in spite of the fact there will be many tourist is rather peaceful and quite mainly because the people are so awed by the beauty of the place. It is definitely a spot where you can take dozens of... More

Beautiful setting except when you have to share it with 12 bus loads of people from cruise ships. Highly congested traffic in and out and buzing with people on the rocks.
