  • Lovely little park even in November. Good time of year to visit Peggy's Cove
  • Highly recommend going in the Fall. There was a fair amount of people but it wasn't swarming like previous reviews state. Very beautiful scenery
  • aka Peggy's Cove. Beautiful spot, may have to park a bit away and walk. Try to get there early in the morning, so you can avoid the huge crowds.
  • Peggy's cove is a pretty area, and well maintained, however it is SWARMING with people: on the rocks, on the road, everywhere. If you're looking for a picturesque light house, there are many others you can stop in at instead.
  • Nice place to visit if you're touring Nova Scotia.
