Arrived with our bus, with one other bus parked, able to get some good pics before the throngs came in. When we left there were 8 buses - but still able to get to places without a lot of folks, be patient ! It is a target rich environment for pictures ! Loved it

A lot of reviews are tourists complaining about the amount of tourists visiting Peggy's Cove. There were several buses, but while we were there, as tourists, it never even entered my mind to dwell on the amount of tourists because the place is so beautiful!! The rock formations, the views of the cove and lighthouse, the homes, the history, the... More

Peggys Cove is a small quaint fishing village in the middle of barren wilderness. The lighthouse is at the end of the village and I would recommend parking in the visitor's centre and walking through the village to the lighthouse. Early morning will give the best photographs from the shore looking at the lighthouse and out to sea, but even... More

This is a good photo spot (yes even with all those tourists). When we got there (around 12pm) a bus load of tourists were dropped off. We thought here goes the photo opportunities but it turns out with the expansiveness of the surroundings - the rocks, the ocean, and the sky, the crowd didn't ruin the photos at all. Don't... More

You feel like a kid again climbing up and down over rocks and along the shore. It is such an amazing landscape. We were lucky that it was sunny and warm, which made it even more special. Cant wait to go back.

I visited Peggy's Cove en route to Lunenburg with my Mother last weekend (early september). The classically picturesque lighthouse with the raging Atlantic ocean in the background is exactly what I expected. You can get as close to the light house as you want, and even explore the weather-beaten rocks that surround, just don't get too close to the edge!... More

Peggy's Cove is breathtaking!! An absolute must see if you are in Halifax. We went with an excursion that we booked with our cruise-line. We didn't know if the shorter tour would be enough time or too much time. I could have spent all day there, but unfortunately we did the short tour and I didn't get to stay as... More

We arrived before 10am on a week day. We were there for about 45 minutes before a succession of tour buses arrived. I counted 9 before we left the area. When we got there we were able to get unobstructed views of the lighthouse and the famous rocks. We walked around the lighthouse and down to the water on the... More

A pretty area with a nice lighthouse out on a point and interesting rock formations. Some other interesting photo opportunities with old house and fishing boats and such. Tends to be crowded and the stores offer nothing unusual. Worth a stop and good photo opportunities.
