- Peggy’s Cove Lighthouse was absolutely gorgeous! It was nice to take pictures in front of the lighthouse; entry into the lighthouse was not permitted. There was plenty of free parking and there was a restaurant with a gift shop. There were also public bathrooms. The houses in this vicinity were truly breathtaking. The Atlantic Ocean was extremely rough, and individuals should use extreme caution when they walk along the rocks next to the lighthouse. It was very easy to slip and fall, and it could be dangerous to end up in the cold and choppy water of the Atlantic Ocean.Written November 22, 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- This is a must see for a few
First, the historic happenings here are astounding. I never heard anything regarding the goings on here during WW 2.
Second, the ocean waves crashing along the rugged coast line is fantastic. You haven’t seen waves till you’ve seen them here.
The only drawback was the parks Canada bathrooms and cafe were closed. Unbelievable!Written October 8, 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- Even though the actual lighthouse and out buildings were closed for entry, the rest of the site was just fantastic to walk around and view the scenery.Written October 17, 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- Cape Bonavista is a beautiful lighthouse. We enjoyed the tour of the lighthouse, and getting to see the light at the top. The gift shop was also fun to visit. There were a lot of whales when we went, so plan to spend a while here to relax and enjoy the sights.
Make sure you bring lots of water. There was nowhere to buy water or fill up water bottles when we went, and it was a hot day.Written July 28, 2023

- Best view is from the shore to the left of the parking lot. And access to the island is down and up exciting metal stairs that are submerged at high tide that can rise 5' per hour! Really beautiful view. And take your bug spray. Mosquitoes are legion.Written August 6, 2023
- We visited this place at sunset and early morning. While I didn't go inside, I enjoyed walking the scenic and easy trails around it. We also spotted whales swimming around the lighthouse. Very enjoyable.Written June 19, 2023
- We hadn’t heard of this fort until it showed up in the list of things to do in Victoria. Spent a few hours there wandering the fort. It was reasonably priced, the weather was perfect and we learned so much about our country’s preparation for war and readiness. Would recommend. There is a lot of walking if that matters to you.Written September 23, 2023

- This one requires a bit of a hike and a walk across a gorge on a walking bridge. The hike is part of the experience. The lighthouse is presently under construction with scaffolding all around it. But the visit is still worth it.Written July 9, 2023
- Very beautiful. Unfortunately I didn’t know the museum was open public. I thought it was just for guests at the inn. I enjoyed the area in general and the beach and wish I had the loot until to visit the museum tooWritten September 10, 2023
- There is plenty to see and do here, and the little water taxis made getting around the entire area as easy as. We spent a half day here and could have done more. There are a plethora of really nice eateries and some really interesting house boat arrangements on one of the wharves. Great place to explore.Written June 11, 2023
- The lighthouse is now disused but still a bit of an icon, located on the headland at the entrance to the bay. There are cliffs adjacent with a dramatic coastline to the north. Also the start of the Lighthouse Trail which would be a pleasant walk if you are so inclined.Written September 1, 2023
