Well, what can I say? If you are already in Halifax, there is no excuse to not come here. Drive, join a tour, bike, even hitchhike. A must. The views were brilliant, and the place is FREE! Note that some rocks are slippery to climb and could get dangerous near the coast. Parking is not the easiest either due to... More

Another must see. It's a bit of a drive from Halifax, but regardless of locals who are bored of it, it is worth seeing! Beautiful, scenic and amazing at sunset!

This is a spectacular place. Not far from Halifax it's wonderfully quaint and presents views for one beautiful photo after another. The information office do free guided tours- which seem to leave on the hour which I'd highly recommend

This is the iconic lighthouse seen in many pictures of Nova Scotia, and with good reason. It is very picturesque. Take the time to walk around the rocks and take in the beauty of the ocean. In summer, it is quite crowded with people, but it still has an undeniable charm.

On a bright sunny day with high winds the fury and power of the Atlantic really shows. It's truly an impressive sight. On a dark foggy day, there's an eery beauty about the place that adds a vitality to this fishing village, really giving it a different feel. Either way, it's very nice being at Peggy's Cove. The lighthouse is... More

You MUST stop here. It is the most beautiful place in NS in my opinion. Breathtaking views. Lots of history. Great place to eat. The town surrounding it is so quaint. My pictures can't say enough.

Parking could be a problem , so if you don't mind walking parka t visitor center and walk down to lighthouse. A great view of the ocean and plenty of room to walk around and take pictures. A real must see.

My girlfriend and I stopped in Peggy's Cove during our tour of the Maritimes and were surprised to find that the local tourism information office - on the left of the main road as you're entering the village - was offering free tours. I'm not sure how often they run, but our guide was quite knowledgeable and gave us an... More

We did not expect all that much when we visited and were afraid this might be over-hyped. Nope. The lighthouse and all of the park and shops were as pretty and perfect as could be. There was a painting workshop going on and all of the artists were out and about painting and then the art was sold at a... More

Came here on our trip through the Maritimes. Have seen pictures of the lighthouse and the village but pictures do not do it justice - you have to spend some time here to appreciate Peggy's Cove. We were lucky to be here on a relatively clear day with some cloud which actually made for some great photos. Also had lunch... More
