This is a peaceful place from which to view some of the east end of the island. It was open and free to go up. Maybe a board telling you some more would be of interest - for example one showing where the wrecks are in relation to the lighthouse or what you are looking out at. Not suitable for... More

We were booked on a tour that went to this Lighthouse. There were a couple of local teens that acted as 'tour guides' and helped make this stop special. They gave us some great inside information on the lighthouse and made this attraction more interesting. Of course we gave them a tip. They earned it!

St. David's is at the remote norther end of the island. Go past the airport. The view from the top is spectacular. You can see all the way back to Navy Dockyard. While there, you can swim at Annie's Bay where you may be the only people on the beach.

This bright red and white lighthouse was built of Bermuda limestone in 1879. It sits at the highest point on the east side of the island and rises 208 feet. You can climb to the top without cost; I did and I guess there were more than a hundred steps. It was quite a climb for a hot day. Once... More

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.
