“Stunning views and lovely tribute”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2012

A truely beautiful place to visit. Tribute to all those on Swiss Air Flight 111. Carpark then a lovely walk out to the memorial, very tastefully done. The views are truely stunning with Peggy's Cove in the distance. The landscape is very unique with smooth rocky boulders typical of Nova Scotia. Definately worth a drive out to visit.

“Tribute to those lost in tragic accident”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2012

A beautifuly designed monument that is a memorial to those lost on the SwissAir flight that crashed off the Nova Scotia Coast near Peggy's Cove.

The memorial is built on granate rock overloking the ocean and picturesque Peggy's Cove Lighthouse.

Well worth the time to visit.

“Beautiful Setting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2012 via mobile

The SwissAir Memorial is a beautifully understated tribute to the people who lost their lives in that tragedy. The setting is breathtaking. This is worth a short visit.
