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

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

Sunset is absolutely stunning for photos! The gift shop is reasonable. We didn't eat there so I cannot comment on the food.

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.

The lighthouse is very pretty but be prepared for lots of tourists. There are some nice other things to see in the area but an hour or so should do it.

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

No, this lighthouse is not open to the public. I didn’t find the lighthouse itself to be anything spectacular. It is the whole scene together with the Cove, harbor, village, sea and the lighthouse that make the place so... More
