Best to get to this historic and scenic lighthouse before the crowds arrive. We arrived at 9 a.m.
Peggy's Point is world famous and very popular. Tour buses and rental cars arrive throughout the day especially in the summer. However, there are two easy ways to beat the crowds even in the peak months:
Be there in the morning as early as possible. At least before 9 AM. Experiencing the sunrise is amazing anyway.
Don't leave before or right after sunset. Just stay! Most visitor leave when the sun goes down, but the place gets even prettier. Check sunrise und sunset times here: Halifax Canada | Sunrise - Sunset
