Peggys Cove is 43 kilometres southwest of downtown Halifax and comprises one of the numerous small fishing communities located around the perimeter of the Chebucto Peninsula. The community is named after the cove of the same name.
Peggy is a nickname for Margaret, and the village may have taken its name from St. Margaret's Bay upon which it is situated. Legend claims a little girl, the sole survivor of a shipwreck during the mid 1800's, became known as Peggy of the Cove and eventually the folk named their village after her, Peggy's Cove.
