Of the over 160 historic lighthouses located across the province of Nova Scotia, none is more well-known, more visited, and likely more photographed than Peggy's Point Lighthouse located in the quaint fishing village of Peggy's Cove. Built over a century ago, the lighthouse stands tall among enormous granite boulders and the crashing waves of the powerful Atlantic Ocean. Spend time exploring the scenic surroundings before making your way to the charming, active fishing village below where you'll find shops, places to dine, the William deGarthe Art Gallery, and more. A visit to Nova Scotia is not complete without a visit to Peggy's Cove.
Peggy's Cove's accessible viewing deck welcomes everyone to take in the beautiful of Peggy's Cove from a different vantage point.
Stay Safe on Shore
The rocky coastline and 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.
