My husband and I traveled from CT to Halifax in August 2013 , and we went to Peggy's Cove as part of our site-seeing spree. Really, it is worth the trip out (it's a little off the beaten path, like so many things in Nova Scotia). As one might suspect, because it is on the water, it is windy, and... More

Stopped by Peggy's cove on business to Halifax. Glad I did. Never got to the restaurant as it was very busy, it is a tourist spot after all.

Peggy's Cove is the place I remember the most of all places I visited during my trip to the Maritimes in 2011. It is also a place I would absolutely visit again if I go to Nova Scotia once more. The view is breathtaking. You could stay there for hours, just looking at the water. The lighthouse is beautiful. Not... More

I had been told that all it was was a bunch of rocks. Well, while that may be partially true, there is much more to it than that. Start with the quaint fishing village and all the neat shops. When you do get to the lighthouse, the rocks are what makes the place so spectacular. Many photo ops. Not to... More

We booked a shore excursion here while on a cruise up the St. Lawrence. It is a most scenic place with the waves breaking over the rocks. Be careful on the granite rocks though, especially when it is misting rain. There is a sign there that people get injured or killed there every day. You can believe it. The day... More

A must see! Worth the walk to the peak (parking is limited and you may need to walk a bit to get to the lighthouse). Took our time and wandered over the rocks around the lighthouse enjoying the fantastic view from many angles. Take your time and sit for a spell, listen to the water, pose for a few pictures...

We visited Peggy's Cove during the hurricane on July 5th - a curious time to go for sure but the vistas were spectacular, in a severe sort of way! Watching the uninterupted views of the cresting Atlantic crashing against the giant rocks and the lighthouse standing against the screaming winds was amazing. And the small, brightly painted fishing cottages almost... More

I live in Halifax ns, and we get a lot of visitors from Ontario. This is one of the many places we that our guess. I have had no complaints from our guess. I enjoy going there as well.
