Peggy's Cove Village and Lighthouse
Peggy’s Cove, South Shore
Spend the day watching the waves and exploring around the rocks. Visitors are reminded to exercise caution at all times, as the ocean water around Peggy’s cove is dangerous. Rogue waves (unpredictable, rough waves) commonly splash up over the rocks, even on calm, sunny days. Stay off the wet, dark rocks and do not swim. The safest way to enjoy the view is to make sure you are walking on dry, white rocks.

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.
Located 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.
