Peggy's Cove is a small rural community located on the eastern shore of St Margaret's Bay, comprising 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, a name also shared with Peggy's Point, immediately to the east of the cove. The village marks the eastern point of St Margaret's Bay. The first recorded name of the cove was Eastern Point Harbour or Pegg's Harbour in 1766. The village is likely named after Saint Margaret's Bay (Peggy being the nickname for Margaret), which Samuel de Champlain named after his mother Marguerite.
