St. David's Lighthouse offers you a gorgeous view of the land that the Islanders call "Mohawk country". Some of the descendants living on this island in Bermuda can trace their ancestry back to the "Pequot" tribe of Indians. All though this lighthouse does not have any of the historical currency like our GIbbs Hill Lighthouse, it still is work the... More

Applied for a 2 day transit authority pass upon arrival on NCL Breakaway at the Dockyard. The pass was $31.50 each and allowed unlimited passage on all city buses and ferries. Might seem a little complicated at first, but you can easily get around on buses and ferries. We wore them out and all went smoothly. City Bus dropped us... More

It's darn hard to get up to the lighthouse. The roads aren't marked how to get there. It's a classic case of "you can't get there from here". Actually, it's not as scenic as Gibb's Hill. It's best seen from a distance.

A great place to view the island from, (after the climb!) The gift shop is probably the cheapest on the island, we returned here to get gifts to take home.

Always wanted to explore this end of the island. It's very out of the way, an expensive cab ride from anywhere, and two cab drivers (one who took us there, one who engaged us in conversation at the lighthouse when he was waiting for his passengers) told us in coded terms that the area wasn't so safe. After we climbed... More

Such great views! You can see all around the entire island. That is IF you can make it up the 85 steps.

187 steps I believe and I did them all. LOL I was tired when I got to the top. This is a really cool view even if it a cloudy day. It's kind of a honor system to go up the stairs. $2.50 is all they ask for. We took a taxi tour and stopped there. They have bathrooms and... More

the views were amazing. you can see the entire island worth the climb. If you have mobility issues you can't climb to top but the view from the grounds is very high and you see how beautiful the Island is.

This site is not developed as a serious tourist attraction but nevertheless is enjoyable and worth the trip. Considering the fact that I visited during a thunderstorm, I am glad I chose to visit this site. Below are my comments by functional area. Expectations. I am a big fan of lighthouses (history, design, construction and operation) and have visited quite... More

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
