  • If you visit Nova Scotia you have to visit Peggy's Cove. The rock formations are out of this world. Stay off the black rocks and enjoy your visit. It's so beautiful there. Make sure you try the ice cream, it's so good
  • 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.
