• Peggy's Cove Lighthouse, Nova Scotia


Peggy’s Point Lighthouse

A beacon of light

Perched on a bed of giant rocks while waves crash below, the Peggy’s Point Lighthouse looks out across the tumultuous Atlantic Ocean.

This lighthouse is thought to be the most photographed in Canada. Bright against the expansive coastal sky, with its weathered whitewashed walls topped with a red lantern room, it is easy to see why. You will be hard-pressed to take a bad photo of this striking panorama.

Just an hours drive from Halifax, making Peggy's Point in easy reach. The surrounding area of Peggy’s Cove, and the quaint fishing village of the same name, embodies the spirit of Nova Scotia’s leisurely coastal life. Explore the shoreline by kayak or peruse the village’s quirky gift shops and galleries before tucking into the area’s specialty, a delectable dish of freshly caught lobster.
