If you're in Halifax, you must take a trip to Peggy's Cove which is about a 40 minute drive from center of town. We arrive Halifax on a cruise ship and was able to contract a taxi to show us the highlights of Halifax and...More
This place is likely on every traveller's bucket list. It's not too far from Halifax, and there are several things to do there and in the vicinity. The lighthouse itself is beautiful, and that it's built from stone is a little uncommon from what we...More
If you read any reviews then you know this is a very touristy spot. We went with an excursion from our cruise ship. We were one of the big coaches. There were so many people and we were there during sunset. If you take a...More
We stopped here for a return visit and were no less impressed with the beauty of the Lighthouse! The piper playing his melodies greatly enhanced the visit.
The footing is solid (huge rocks) but warrant care.
The black rocks are slick and should be avoided....More
Isolated photos look good but, oh, the crowds! Maybe if we had wanted to clamber on the rocks we might have enjoyed our time here more, but the place doesn’t start off with a lot and has got a most of it left. I wouldn’t...More
We went to Halifax specifically to see Peggy’s Cove Lighthouse as it is supposed to one of the most beautiful lighthouses in North America. I have to say that, compared with many lighthouses in Australia, it is nothing spectacular.
Iconic small Nova Scotian town down right on the ocean, it is located about an hour outside of Halifax. We took a Grey Line bus tour to get there and had about an hour and a half to enjoy the town once there. A few...More

We stopped in Halifax while on a Cruise on the Anthem of the Seas. We rented a mid sized car for less than $50 for the day and drove to Peggy's Cove. We had no problem parking, though it was crowded on the September day we were there. Ton's of bus traffic. We stopped at Shaw's on the way back for lunch and the Fairview Lawn Cemetery to see the Titanic graves (Parking there was super easy and about a 2 minute walk) before parking on the street near the Maritime museum. Hertz was just outside the cruise terminal. It was super easy with a GPS provided you are comfortable driving in unfamiliar surroundings. Leaving the ship as soon as you get in port helps to beat the bus traffic (at least from YOUR ship) out to the cove. You will have plenty of time to see everything out there and make it back well before the ship leaves. Another couple we met from our cruise took a bus tour and regretted not doing it on their own as they spent less time enjoying the cove and more time just sitting on the bus (waiting for others, etc...)
