This memorial is visible from the lighthouse at Peggy,s Cove. The monument has a unique design combining the Flight number. It is a very worthwhile to explore.

I don't usually go to these memorials but rather keep the tragedy in my heart. However the Swissair site is exceptional and I'm glad I walked along the rocks. If I had to go down in a plane, this is the place to be remembered.

Visited in the end of November and although the sun was shining it was a cold day. The site is well layed out and allows for a reflective walking tour.

I recently had a friend visiting me from Ontario. While visiting the south shore we stopped at the SwissAir memorial. Always a somber place but beautiful and peaceful. We said a pray for the victims of the crash and a thank you to the rescuers.

The memorial is sited in the most scenic of places and is a lovely testament to all who flew on the Swissair flight that crashed. You can stroll down the small paths and soak in the atmosphere

A beautiful memorial to remember all the lives lost in this tragedy. Take the time stop stop and reflect. Walk along the shore and sit on the rocks and look out to the horizon.

A very well designed tribute to those who passed away on the Swissair flight 111. Provided at the beginning of the short path to this memorial is a tablet telling the story that may bring back memories to those who remember when it happened in...More
