You can't get to the lighthouse as you would have to cross private land and the owner doesn't like anyone going across his land. Can be seen long distance from King Neptune Camp Ground across the water. It has just been restored.

Certainly not a place for disabled persons or persons with walking difficulties. Once you do get there it's absolutely beautiful though

You can get near the light house by driving on Paddy's Cove Rd. off the main road, but not too it. It doesn't really matter. It's an attractive surprise so near Peggy's Cove and enjoyable for the serenity as well as the beauty on the...More

But the trip along Paddy's Head Road is very scenic offering views of Indian Harbour and the sometimes rougher waters off Mackerel Point and Paddy's Head. It's worth the side trip off Peggy's Cove Road to see it.

This is an automated lighthouse along the coast. You may have to cross private land to get to it, but we had a nice view of it from the King Neptune Campground.

Brilliant white lighthouse on the rocks in a charming little seaside village. I must admit to not understanding the whole Peggy thing but loved the beauty provided by mother nature

This is a pretty cool lighthouse to visit, especially if you have already taken the trip to Peggy's Cove to see the Peggy's Point Lighthouse. Less than a 10 minute drive away - and on a route that will also take you back towards Halifax...More

everyone should go check it out. it is very beautiful. It is also very busy so go early if you can. Importantly, don't go down on any rocks that are dark. Even if the ocean appears calm, waves come up all the time and many...More
