A memorial stands to commemorate the loss of life that day when Swiss Air 111 ran out of fuel and crashed into the bay. It is indeed a somber place to visit. Every year the locals pay homage to those souls who were lost .

Well done memorial on a beautiful site. The lovely oath to the memorial had great views of Peggy’s Cove and the lighthouse in the distance. Worth the stop!

This location is pretty hidden. When you find it, take a moment and pause for the ones who lost their lives. Take in the views and see peggys cove from a distance as well

Less than a 5-minute drive from Peggy's Cove Lighthouse is the memorial for those who perished in the Swissair flight 111, Sept.2/98.

Like most memorials, this one fills you with sadness. This is one of two memorials for Swissair 111 along this stretch of road overlooking the crash site. It is very simple. I believe the other memorial contains all the names of the victims.
