Welcome to Peggy’s Cove
Peggy’s Cove is one of the most visited fishing villages in Canada, and for good reason: the rolling granite cove, highlighted by a perfect red-and-white lighthouse, exudes a dreamy seaside calm, even through the parading tour buses. Most visitors hop off their air-con bus, snap a few selfies, then get right back on. Visit before 10am, after 6pm, or in the off-season to avoid the jam and to appreciate the true beauty and tranquility of the place.
If you're looking for the same kind of vibe without the mass of visitors, albeit without the iconic lighthouse as well, cute-as-a-button Lower Prospect is 30km to the east via Terrence Bay.
