Peggy’s Cove is one of the most popular tourist attractions that Nova Scotia has to offer. Peggy’s Cove is famous for its shops, restaurants, history and of course the view. The barren and rugged landscape make this a truly unique area. It reflects Nova Scotia’s fishing culture with its colorful homes, wharves and famous lighthouse. The location is amazing, it is one of many coastal points in the province, and on a clear day you can experience the vast ocean and the waves crashing on the rocks.
I have been to Peggy’s Cove many times throughout my life, mostly to take friends that are visiting from out of town. Peggy’s Cove really is a tourist attraction; practically every time I have been there the rocks are dotted with people exploring the rocks and crevices along the coastline. This can be a deterrence, as on a nice day it is guaranteed to be busy with people, which makes it hard to park, eat in the restaurant and walk around. It is also a popular place for storm watchers, as the waves can be huge. Sadly, wave watchers have been swept into the ocean on more than one occasion.
I suggest to any first time visitors to Nova Scotia that Peggy’s Cove is a must see. For locals and residents of Halifax, Peggy’s Cove is still interesting and a great place to go when you want get out of the city. During the summer months beware that it will be busy, but when you get there you won't be disappointed.
