Must see · Lighthouse · Tourist Spot
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.

  • Always a beautiful place to visit. I would suggest going in the off season if you want to be able to appreciate the landscapes. Going during tourist season can take away some of the beauty because of the hundreds of people surrounding everything.
  • Absolutely gorgeous! Loved all the pictures I got and had a great time with family. Went here for my Birthday:) No bathrooms with covid! Empty the tank first!
