Peggy’s Cove Lighthouse

Peggy’s Cove lighthouse is a stop for natural beauty lovers. The ocean view with waves crashing against the rocky shoreline causes the water to spray up into the sky and turn into a photographer’s dream. There is also granite with etched in artwork, and picturesque coves, houses and boats. Plan to stop for lunch here by either packing a picnic or going to a nearby restaurant after checking this little place out. Don’t miss the unique shopping close by. With many family-owned jewelry stores and local-made art and gift shops, it is hard not to feel like a local yourself!
