Beautiful memorial overlooking the Atlantic and with views of the lighthouse at Peggy’s Cove. Recommend a stop there for a thoughtful stroll around the site.

This was an unexpected stop on our trip. I remember when this crash happened and seeing this wonderful memorial and hearing the entire story of the rescue was very educational.

This is very sad but very respectful, this Swiss Air flight crashed not far from where the Titanic sank. This memorial is sad but pays tribute to the victims in a respectful way, well worth a visit.

The 1998 crash of Swissair 111 is tastefully memorialized at this site. There is another site across St. Margaret's Bay at Bayswater where all the victims are named.
