“Always Beautiful”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2013

Peggy's Cove is always something to see, and not to be missed. This trip I was disappointed to see so many tour buses, but that couldn't take away from the beauty. Since it was so crowded we opted to leave the tourist area to find a meal. A kind local pointed us to a couple of options and the one we picked couldn't be beat. I you want a real lobster experience, travel just a bit west and watch on the left side of the road for Ryder Lobsters Ltd.. They will sell you a fresh lobster already boiled and ready to eat. The lady behind the counter will take the lobster of your choice from a cooler of steaming hot lobsters, place it in a large plastic tray, crack the tail, claws, and body , add a container of melted butter, give you paper plates, forks, bibs and a roll of paper towels. You take it outside to a picnic table and enjoy. A 1 1/4 lb. lobster cost us $11 and some change. They have a big outdoor sink for washing yourself up. You won't find any fresher than this. And don't forget to visit Ivan before you leave the area. He's quite the character.

“Breathtaking & Brilliant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013

Couldn't get enough of those rocks! Spent a good half hour clambering and sliding over them, as well as an endless parade of photographs. We also got photos of the lighthouse and ocean too!
Just glorious, the air bracing.
Can't wait to get back there on a warmer day and spend more time, because the place is so picturesque, unreal, the rocks too inviting to explore.
Television and photographs really don't do the place justice. It has to be experienced.

“Peggy's Cove”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012

Do you like the sea, fresh air, quaint fishing village, and more well you can find it all here in Peggy's Cove. With the large rocks and the sea crashing in on them you will have your breath taken away. Make sure though you stay well enough away from the edge of the rocks or you will find yourself fighting to stay alive in surf and the undertow.Take in a meal while you are there and enjoy some down home cooking that will have you coming back for more. There are shops you can visit and get some great gifts to come home with whether for yourself or someone else. I guarantee you will love the break away from the hectic city.

“Proud to be Canadian!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2012

Spent the afternoon with Ivan Fraser, wow what a wonderful experience! He was so welcoming, kind and interesting. He really made me proud of the Nova Scotia hospitality. It was such an interesting way to spent the afternoon. No appointment required, just stop in and say Hello, you'll be glad you did.
