This scenic view is of Peggy's Cove, located in St Margarets Bay in Nova Scotia. This view shows the famous Peggy's Cove Lighthouse looking out to sea with the waves crashing up on the rocks all around and the sunset causing the horizon to turn shades of pink, orange and yellow. Peggy's Cove Lighthouse is located along the famous scenic Lighthouse Route on Highway 33 in Nova Scotia, Canada.

Peggy's Cove Lighthouse is one of the most popular attractions to visit along the Lighthouse Route. It is still in operation today and is manned by the Canadian Coast Guard to guide ships safely in to the harbour. It is also one of the busiest attractions in Nova Scotia, and many tourists make sure they make a stop here if they are travelling the Lighthouse Route.

There has been a lighthouse at Peggy's Cove since 1868, but the first one was built of wood. The light in that lighthouse was a kerosene oil lamp and had to be lit every day by the lighthouse keeper. The current lighthouse was built in 1914 and has been automated since 1958. The light that shines from this lighthouse still does a good job today of making sure ships don't run aground on the sharp rocks of the scenic coastline below.
