secluded area of Bermuda, make your way to the southern eastern part of the island to St. David Lighthouse. it is quiet in a residential area high top a hill sits St. David lighthouse...a great view of St. George and eastern part of Bermuda. not too hard of a climb to the top and outside view is worth the trip....

This lighthouse visit wasn't as busy compared to the Pegggy's Cove lighthouse located in Nova Scotia, Canada that we visited a number of years ago. However you really can't compare such a Bermuda lighthouse to a Candian one that also has a Cansda Post mailbox at its location. Althought average in my personal opinion, this place has a higher standard... More

My wife and I came to Bermuda via cruise ship spending 3 days on the island. During our second day we went over to Clearwater Beach and Cooper's Island Nature Reserve. From there you can see St. David's Lighthouse. Since we traveled to this side of Bermuda via moped we decided to find this lighthouse to have a look. While... More

We visited St. David's Lighthouse during a St. George cruise excursion tour. There is a circular staircase to the top (no elevator). It is a little cramped, but it was well worth the climb to the top, as the view is spectacular! Would not go out of my way to visit it, but if you are in the area, would... More

I visited St. David's in 10-12 during a cruise on NCL's Star. I love lighthouses, so it was on my list. Further, I had a scooter so it was a very pleasant ride. If you're docked at King's Wharf and need to take a bus / taxi, I would say don't bother - UNLESS you also plan (somehow) to go... More

It is "OK". Was in the area exploring the island on the scooter. I wouldnt recommend a special trip out there for only the lighthouse.

Nothing much else to see around there, but we enjoyed the trip out there off the beaten path a bit. If you are going by bus, take the number 6 as it is the only one that goe out there. You can climb all 85 steps to the top of the lighthouse for terrific views.

as long as we were out to st. george's on a Sunday (VERY SLEEPY TIME OF WEEK TO GO!), we drove out to St.David's Lighthouse. It's a very 'lighthouse' looking structure, but you must wind through a lot of roads to get to it and, once there, it wasn't like you could go inside. The spot is lonesome, way out... More

St. David's Lightouse is on a hill which is very isolated. If you enjoy silence and tranquility, go to this lighthouse. It is a walk up the hill and there litlerally is nothing around the lighthouse. It is well worth the many stairs to the top to see the view. Awesome! A tourist bus did not even stop to let... More

If you want to see a lighthouse, I definitely would not recommend this one... Go over to South Hampton to the Gibbs Lighthouse. Much better setting. We took the long trek out to St. Davids and then learned that they were not opening that day (no warning). It is out-of-the-way and not that spectacular.
