Welcome to the Peggy's Cove Coastal Region on Nova Scotia's Bluenose Coast. We like to say that we live in Mother Nature's Playground and invite you to come and play with us.
The Peggy's Cove Coastal Region, encompassing the shores of the scenic St. Margaret's Bay, offers you a wide range of attractions and experiences that will help make your holiday a memorable one. Many of our area's assets are tucked away on side roads or in scenic coves and harbours that are just waiting for you to find and explore. Let this website be your guide to many days of discovering our outdoor playground, just 30 minutes from downdown Halifax, Nova Scotia.
Besides the stunning natural beauty of this area there are a whole host of exciting activities and experiences to savour. The region is noted for its hiking trails, kayaking adventures, whale watching, birding activities, and golf courses and our pristine beaches offer fun for the whole family.
The restaurants and cafes in our area offer the freshest Nova Scotia seafood. Lobster is our specialty but don't miss a feed of mussels or a meal featuring the wonderful St Margaret's Bay haddock.
Shopping includes many small, locally owned gift stores, galleries and craft shops which feature primarily Canadian and Nova Scotian artists and crafts people.
Accommodation varies from oceanfront campgrounds to cosy cottages to friendly bed and breakfasts and inns. You will find something to suit every requirement and budget.
Whether your interest is in the great outdoors, history, shopping or simply "taking time to smell the roses", you will find what you need to make your vacation complete - right here along our coast! A warm maritime welcome and down-home hospitality await you.
