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

Second time here last time all fogged in. So it was a real treat to see the beauty and listen to the ocean while watching the never ending waves. Stop in and check it out.

We went here on our first day in Halifax at the suggestion of the car rental folks. It is not a long drive from the city and all we wanted was to see the sea and smell the sea. Peggy's Cove is a perfect place to do this. There are little shops but we did not take advantage of them.... More

We arrived the day before the full wrath of the Tropical Storm hit Peggys Cove. It arrived in all of its glory the next day, taking out the power where we lodged. Nothing can be said to fully describe the waves and wind other than awesome. Peggy's Cove was beautiful during the storm. Waves crashed onto the rocks and gave... More

We were thrilled to visit Peggy's Cove on a day when it was clear and sunny. My husband and I had visited 17 years earlier but it was grey and foggy. This was the first time our boys aged 10 and 12 had visited the site. They enjoyed jumping on the rocks surrounding the lighthouse and posing for some photos.... More

What an experience this was. They had music and a piper playing here. Worth the visit to see and be part of this area. The music was great to hear - mostly country. The Piper was playing near the lighthouse and provide a great background to the lighthouse. Walk around to see the gift shops and the harbor, great photo... More

We loved Peggy's Cove! Such a beautiful lighthouse and view! There are a lot of neat little stores that you can enter and even go on a boat tour. It is a very neat location that you will not find anywhere else.

When your mind thinks of "lighthouse", you are imagining the Peggy's Cove Lighthouse. It is a picture-perfect lighthouse, set out on high rocks. The day we visited, it was very windy and the ocean was all riled up, creating high crashing waves. The town looked quaint, but we visited on a Sunday evening and all was closed up.

Probably the best lobster we had well in Halifax! It was so fresh, the seafood chowder was outstanding, and the lighthouse was awesome, we had a great time there, must see!
