Create an itinerary including Peggy's Cove Lighthouse
The iconic Peggy's Cove Lighthouse beckons travelers by land and sea with its traditional white-and-red facade, as it marks the rugged eastern entrance to the bay. Step along the water-worn, rounded granite rocks that the beacon is built on, and watch the powerful Atlantic break heavily against them. The lighthouse represents a major stop on the region's Lighthouse Trail scenic drive. Be sure to take extra care exploring this area, as visitor can be swept off the rocks by larger waves. Don't forget your camera and capture this lighthouse, renowned for its composition.

  • This was such a beautiful setting. Bitter sweet as it did get over run with tour buses and people. Glad we arrived early. We had purchased 4 live lobsters en route and cooked them in the Peggy's...

  • If your travelling thru Nova Scotia this is a MUST STOP place. Spectacular rock formations and views. Fortunately we drove thru here early in the morning before the crowds arrived. The sea was calm.....  more

  • A National heritage site. The new viewing deck have made the place more accessible to wheelchair and senior citizens. Peggy's Cove always have the same Glamour and excitement across the year and any season. The washrooms are clean and well maintained. Parking has never been a problem. Sometimes it gets windy making it more chilling. Always a picturesque spot. The light house is always closed and climbing to the top is not accessible.
  • Peggy’s cove was a nice place to visit. First time everyone was really traveling this summer so it was extra busy. We were still able to easily find parking and space on the rocks to ourselves. Much more beautiful in person then I thought it would be. Definitely recommend checking it out.
  • Absolutely beautiful place, especially at sunset. The ocean views with the orange skies are just super-serene and calming. Would definitely recommend to go at sunrise or sunset. This is also an amazing place for stargazing late at night with a fabulous view of the sky with very little light pollution. Parking can get full at peak times though!
  • It’s beautiful. It’s picturesque. It’s historical. Whole bunch of touristy stuff to see and buy. Absolutely not enough parking to keep up with the traffic this place generates. We had to park on the highway and walk in but it was worth it because we got to see all the attractions along the road until we got to the lighthouse. The view is amazing and it’s somewhere that you have to visit even if your from the area.
  • So beautiful! It’s amazing to see. Very busy even if you go during the week, however, it’s a must see if you are in the neighbourhood. I love that they let you off the boardwalk and onto the rocks so you can still experience the authentic experience. A must see if you are around - don’t miss this one!
