Iconic Peggy’s cove and the lighthouse are a must when you visit the east coast. The postcard perfect fishing village has not changed at all ever!!! Charming and Disney couldn’t hold a candle to the natural beauty.

Went with a few friends to check out the lighthouse while visiting in nearby Halifax. It was a nice view. I enjoyed reading the plaques about the geology and how the rocks on the point were formed. We went in the afternoon so the lighting...More

There was a really easy path out to the lighthouse. The views and surrounding area was lovely. There is ample free parking and there is a restaurant as well. Driving up to the lighthouse we took a load of photos of this picturesque village.

The area around this lighthouse is of a small village of restaurants and shops with only one small road that leads in and then out. Definitely a tourist stop on the cruise excursion lists, and yet the village remains quaint like. We were not allowed...More

The leaves were just beginning to turn and air was crisp.... we do not get to see many lighthouses in Texas, so was good to see the area...

Nice to see, yet maybe redundant if you’re from the east coast and familiar with lighthouses, yet overall great view. Food by near by restaurant is mediocre and you are better off elsewhere with fresh sea food.

This little village is so quaint and very popular with tourists. Try to go on a day when the cruise ships are not in the Halifax Harbour if possible but be sure to see it no matter what. Stroll through the little village to take...More

I have been to Peggy's Cove twice and both times the weather and sights were picture-perfect. If you are going to Halifax, don't skip this short drive with a beautiful view along the way. There are also restaurants and picnic areas selling lobster rolls everywhere....More

A picture postcard seaside village steeped in Atlantic sea air. The lighthouse is the most photographed one in the world. The walk to see it is very rocky, so be careful.

We went in Sept. From pictures I would guess 1- you can certainly visit there. 2- it certainly won't be crowded and 3 - it almost most certainly will be cold & icy! If we lived closer - my wife & I would definitely... More

I frankly would not miss it but one always has the chance of fog or rain even if the weather is nice in Halifax.

Yes, its an outdoor experience with the cliffs and the lighthouse. Very beautiful. I recommend bringing a jacket as I was there in August and the wind could get pretty chilly :) The restaurant and souvenir booth might have... More
