Peggy's Cove Village and Lighthouse
Peggy’s Cove, South Shore
The image of this famous lighthouse on top of the giant rocks with the sea waves crashing in is just as beautiful as it has been for almost a century. Spend the day watching the waves and exploring around the rocks. Visitors are reminded to exercise caution at all times, as the surging sea is never far away.
Peggy’s Cove is famed for its picturesque and typically East-Coast profile, with houses perched along a narrow inlet and on wave-washed boulders facing the Atlantic. Although this unique environment has been designated a preservation area, it is still an active fishing community.
Just an hour from Halifax, Peggy's Cove and the lighthouse may be reached on Highway 333 from Halifax or Highway 103 from Halifax to Exit 5 and then Route 333. Bus tours are welcome.
