Peggy's Cove - an Idyllic Maritime Fishing Village
It is virtually illegal not to visit iconic Peggy's Cove when visiting Nova Scotia.


Peggy's Cove, in Nova Scotia's Halifax Regional Municipality, is situated on the eastern shoreline of St. Margarets Bay. Peggy's Cove was founded in 1811 after the government issued six German families 800-acres of land in the area. In those days, residents relied on nearby land to pasture cattle, as the land in Peggy's Cove was infertile. Fishing was and has always been the main industry in Peggy's Cove. With such close proximity to Halifax (44.1 km or 27.4 mi.) Peggy's Cove is a popular destination in summer months, and is especially unique considering just over 100 people live in Peggy's Cove.

Peggy's Cove is proud of its famous lighthouse, aptly called the Peggy's Point Lighthouse. The lighthouse was built in 1914, but first lit in 1915. Peggy's Cove exhibits a rustic outer appearance which, to many, is considered a tourism asset that separates Peggy's Cove from other destinations. Peggy's Cove is home to numerous art galleries, historical sights, memorials, monuments, museums, a provincial park, restaurants, various land and water tours, fishing and venues for special occasions.

Peggy's Cove accommodations include bed and breakfasts.
