“See the need for a Lighthouse”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2013

After seeing Peggy's Cove Lighthouse, it readily became apparent as to why a lighthouse was needed. Try to imagine this place without the shops, houses, and other buildings and not to mention without the lighthouse. There would be a large pile of ships hulls on the rocks. This is a picturesque location and perfect for sunrise or sunset photos to stir the imagination. Well worth the trip to visit it!

“Nice location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2013

When visiting Nova-Scotia, remember to check out Peggy's cove. The landscape and Rock formations are truly spectacular. Restaurant features very fresh seafood and is reasonably priced considering the million dollar view.

“Beautiful!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2013

We arrived there at sunset! It was beautiful! Spent about an hour on the rocks just admiring the view. No charge and free parking. Great way to spend some time. The lighthouse is quaint and add in the sunset and you have some great pictures to take!

“Amazing sunset......”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2013

I have visited Peggy's Cove a number of times, but this was my first time at sunset. It was so beautiful and worth the trip. The lighthouse is so striking at any time, but adding the sunset experience was worthwhile. Wear a coat, it gets cold with the ocean breeze!
