Great Memorial for the tragic loss of lives in the ocean. Beautiful view of Peggys cove in the distance. Quick stop, close to Peggys Cove. Can hear waves crashing. Free to see.

Details on plaques tell of the crash and the efforts of locals. A very well done memorial site with a long view back to the lighthouse and village.

Worth of stopping by and walking a short distance to the monument. It's nice view over the ocean. I was already forgot this accident so it was a nice refreshing as well.

This memorial is very close to Peggy’s cove. A short walk up a nice trail to the rock memorial. A place to reflect on the lives lost and pay your respects.

I've never been so deeply moved by a monument; perhaps because it happened "in my backyard", and because so many souls were lost so close to landing. Do yourself a favour and read about the flight before you visit. The impact will be profound. "Swissair...More

Wow, what can one say about this memorial. It reminds us all of a very painful event that took place back on September 2, 1998. Swissair Flight 111 crashed and all 229 passenger and crew perished as the plane crashed 8 km from the shore.,...More
