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.

Peggy's Cove is situated in a little fishing town an hour drive from Halifax, NS. We found it in one of the tour guidebooks and decided to take a visit. I am so glad we did!! The views are stunning and the whole atmosphere is adorable. Bring you camera to get great shots of the lighthouse and the waves crashing... More

I live 45 minutes from Peggy's Cove over on the next Bay, but this to me is always a spot I love to go visit, and also bring visitors. Yes, there can be a lot of tourist in the summer, so to avoid tourist go before 10 am or after dinner. Regardless this is a must see when in N.S.... More

There is more to Peggy's Cove than the lighthouse. We parked at the visitor information centre as you enter the village and walked to the lighthouse, it's not far. It is the most picturesque fishing village with many opportunities for the perfect photo. You must arrive early in the morning, at least before ten o'clock if you want to get... More

Peggy's Cove was one of the stops on a bus tour we took while on a cruise to Halifax. If you visit from a cruise, expect a lot of tourists to be there. Beautiful coastline formed with the help of glaciation and the lighthouse sitting atop the rocky coast were like postcard pictures as we had a clear, sunny day..... More

The iconic lighthouse of Nova Scotia. Picture perfect on massive rocks with the blue Atlantic and a blue sky. There are many great places to take pictures of fishing boats and fishing buildings in the town as you walk (or drive) down to the lighthouse. A souvenir shop and restaurant are located by the large parking lot where people leave... More

Cruise day trip. About 1 hour there was just not enough. Sept, cold and windy and beautiful. Friendly folks who got a BUNCH of folks through the cash registers so they didn't need to just be waiting in line. I could post so many photos, but will refrain
