Peggy's Cove Lighthouse


Atlantic Canada's #1 tourist destination.

The famous lighthouse at Peggy's Point remains the most recognizable symbol of this quiet hideaway. In fact, the white and red beacon of hope — which started guiding sailors in 1868 — has the distinction of being one of the most photographed lighthouses in the world.

One of Nova Scotia's most well-known lighthouses, the Peggy’s Point Lighthouse at Peggy’s Cove was built in 1915 and is located just an hour from Halifax. The ground floor of this lighthouse, until 2009, operated as a post office where visitors could mail their postcards in the summer months – the only lighthouse post office in North America at the time. While the post office is no longer there, the image of this famous lighthouse on top of the giant rocks with the sea waves crashing in is just as beautiful as it has been for almost a century.
