A bit off the main road but well worth the drive. There are a number of restaurants along the way if wish to make an afternoon and evening of the trip. Very small fishing village is a fun walk through separate from the actual lighthouse area. Many tourists including tourist bus groups. We were there later in the afternoon so... More

The rocks around the lighthouse can be challenging to young children. I recommend wearing good shoes. This is a very popular tourist spot and you can tell, there was nearly 0 parking spots left, and the people on the rocks were just crazy. You would be very lucky to get a picture without other people in your shot.

What a beautiful spot even if it was a bit crowded. I was able to get some amazing photographs of this iconic area. Would love to visit all four seasons to get the same shots at different time frames - but I'm thrilled that we had a beautiful day to explore this scenic location. Loved walking on the rocks and...

The best place to sit on the rocks with special friends and watch the tide come in. Don't hurry through this amazingly beautiful peaceful place! Also get some lobster afterwards

Very beautiful and scenic area! Worth the visit! You can spend a lot of time climbing amongst the rocks that surround the lighthouse.

A let down after so much talk about how great is was. We walked out to the lighthouse from the tourist information both where we had parked. There were some nice shops along the way and a great little ice cream parlor. I recommend the Mexican chocolate. This place is swamped with tourists. There are so many other places to... More

The view on the lighthouse and the rocks that surround it are iconically Canadian. This town is beautiful! The lighthouse could use some repair, a fresh coat of paint at the least. There are plenty of little shops to pop in and out of. Parking is at the visitor center as is the bathrooms. Arrive early to avoid bus loads... More

For years I hear people talk about Peggy's Cove, I did not think anything special just a light house. Well, I was wrong! It is located on a beautiful hill, very picturesque. Don't forget to bring your camera :-) . We even spend $25 on a 1hr boat trip...it was well worth it. You get to see the light house... More

This area is lovely and there are lots of rocks/boulders to climb around on and enjoy the view. Go early to avoid the crowds.
