We spent 10 minutes here because the area was swamped with tour buses filled of tourists all scampering around to get the best selfie shots- and this was in early June! It's just a lighthouse with large white rocks around. We feel its fine to...More

Lovely old fishing village on picturesque inlet very much in original condition with a light house on the entrance, plenty of photo opportunities but beware of the swell passing over the rocks near the lighthouse.

I know this is a common tourist attraction but I've always wanted to see this specific spot. The winds were strong and it was entertaining to see the seagulls play in the wind while we sat on the rocks to watch the waves. I recommend...More

Pretty place to stop and take a photo of the lighthouse, the sea and the rocks around it. A restaurant and a few shops and a very good info center.

Amazing rock formations at the waters edge and beautiful sunsets. Quaint small fishing village with only 35 year round residents.

Access to the rocky shoreline around the lighthouse is always open. Most of the restaurants and shops should also be open in September.

Depending on the weather and how long you wish to stare at the ocean and lighthouse. We were there on a blustery day so we stayed 30 minutes tops.
If I only have time to visit either Peggy's Cove or the Lunenburg/Mahone Bay area before we head to Wolfville - which do you recommend? Which ever place we visit, we will spend the night.

Such a tough decision. To have more accommodation options I would have to say. Lunenburg Mahone Bay Area. Peggy's Cove is beautiful but I believe it would be much nicer in the spring/fall.
