“Love Peggy's Cove!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 August 2014

This was our second trip to Peggy's Cove and we loved it!! The beauty of the ocean, the rocks, the sky, and the quaintness of this village charmed all of us!! My daughters and I loved the ice cream place and the charming gift shops, after we had trekked the rocks and the Lighthouse and taken a ton of pictures! Definitely worth the trip -- even the drive there was beautiful!!

“Worthwhile first Stop on our day trip to Lunenburg from Halifax”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 August 2014

My Daughter and I had a day for sightseeing ,so we took off in our rent -a-car from Dartmouth and headed to Peggy's Cove .A quaint little town -that is nothing but a tourist stop. they have a boat ride ,a restaurant and a tourist souvenir shop. there is a huge parking lot with a tourist information booth,where we picked up maps and information for the next leg of our journey .
The cove itself is gorgeous if you can manage to get photos without cars and other tourists in them haha .and the light house is lovely perched up on the jagged rocks with the sea behind .
and it's all free.
off to Chester, Mahone bay ,and Lunenburg

“Crowded Tourist Trap”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 August 2014

Don't get me wrong, Peggy's Cove is a beautiful little town. However, it was so crowded when we tried to go there that we couldn't find a parking spot anywhere in this town. We drove around and around and finally decided that seeing the lighthouse from the car was good enough. There are so many people here, I'm not sure how anyone gets a picture of the lighthouse without at least 50 other people in it. The wilderness preservation area around Peggy's Cove is really scenic, but I don't think I would come back here. There are many other adorable fishing towns in Nova Scotia that you can see without being run over by tour buses.

“Nice spot - too many people around”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 August 2014

Peggy's Cove is a nice place, that's for sure, but I don't understand the tourist hype about it. There are so many beautiful places in Nova Scotia that deserve the same interest as Peggy's Cove.

“worth a stop”

Sometimes a place gets too much hype and has backlash - some folks told us to skip this but glad we did not. Beautiful place.
