A picturesque region that begins a short 15-minute drive outside Halifax along the south shore of Nova Scotia, St. Margaret’s Bay is a thriving community. Its unique blend of new and established residents, along with a healthy dose of Maritime hospitality, ensures that everyone feels welcome. We also boast a wide range of well-known yearly events, ranging from athletic to arts and culture to seasonal festivities.
St. Margaret’s Bay is home to the village of Peggy’s Cove, one of one of Canada’s most iconic tourist attractions: the Peggy’s Point lighthouse is said to be the most photographed lighthouse in the world. Other regional highlights include the ruggedly beautiful Peggy’s Cove Preservation Area; the SS Atlantic Heritage Park in Terence Bay, with its charming seaside boardwalk; and the impressive Hooked Rug Museum of North America in Queensland.
