About This Experience

A trip to Halifax isn’t complete without a photo with or of Peggy’s Cove Lighthouse, one of the most photographed and visited sites in the country! There is arguably no site more iconic in Nova Scotia than Peggy’s Cove Lighthouse.

It’s not just the lighthouse, there are plenty of other things to see and do: Browse one of the charming gift shops or take a walk among the dozens of inukshuks standing around the rocks – you can even build your own!

Get a workout climbing the massive rocks to get that perfect view of the sea, or find a spot to lie in the sun and let the soothing sounds of the waves wash over you – but not literally!

Read our blog to find out how to get to Peggy’s Cove from Downtown Halifax.

Locals tip: Visit the lighthouse off season (fall or spring) or in the evenings/sunset to experience Peggy’s Cove without the massive crowds and tourists!
