Great views!

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

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

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

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
