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.

  • A must see place when in the area but best avoided when crowded or go between coach parties. The new looking boardwalk must be a great help to all generations and reminds one how dangerous the sea...

  • Iconic stop for visitors, and a fun place for the local kids to explore. There is a lot of granite rocks to climb on and around. Just be sure to stay well away from the water. The restaurant on site is great. Fish and chips is highly recommended. The main restaurant building has a gift shop, but with. A few minutes walk there are a variety of other options.
  • A charming old lighthouse built on rocks that roll into the sea. This is a popular tourist attraction. Locate it not far outside Halifax. There's a restaurant and Gift shop. Parking is limited. This is an iconic spots for pictures. Just remember to stay off the black rocks. People have been swept up to sea from there.
