Every visit to Peggy's Cove is amazing, and different. If you respect the ocean, you will be fine. The warning signs are not there as a joke, so do not take them lightly. Black rocks mean wet rocks, which means that the water is actively...More

Not worth the effort to see this tiny lighthouse, unless you have never or will not see another lighthouse. There is nothing distinctive or historical to warrant the dozens of tour buses crowding the tiny area. The gift shop/restaurant has the public restrooms--loooong lines. The...More

We drove to Halifax to Peggy's Cove the drive along the way itself was amazing, the sights are beautiful and Peggy's Cove is most definitely worth the drive. This is a major tourist attraction in Halifax and should be seen by everyone traveling through Halifax.

No matter how often I have seen it in the past, it is always breathtaking to drive to and walk around Peggy's Cove. No trip to Nova Scotia is complete without it.

It was unseasonably warm when we went, causing lots of fog and mist. We could barely see the lighthouse when we got there. Just the rocks and the ocean smashing up against them were cool. We found the humor in the eating and caution signs...More

We drove from Halifax to Peggy’s Cove (about 45min.) for a sunrise in June and it was probably the best time to go if you want the lighthouse all to yourself. When we arrived there shortly before 5am, there was only a couple of other...More

Good stop over in a quaint area. Carved granite wall is quite impressive. Not much foliage mostly smooth rock

I love Peggy's Cove. If you are a lighthouse chaser or photographer you need to see this one. The rocks and ocean are amazing too. There is a great gift shop and restaurant right there too. Dress warm because it can be a bit breezy.

The day we went was rather blustery, but I'm glad we did. The rocks surrounding the lighthouse are amazing. You feel like an ant walking on them, they are so huge. The views from them are great, too. There wasn't much open in the end...More

I’ve never heard of this legend. It would have to be a Mic Mac legend but not one I’m familiar with.
