My husband and I took a short bus ride from our cottage to the lighthouse. That being said, we were dropped off at the bus stop on South Shore Road and walked..... It was a long, hot walk. When we reached the lighthouse we paid $2.50/ each to enter the lighthouse. There wasn't anyone paying attention to who entered and... More

Climb the stairs to the top of the Lighthouse, the views are fantastic. You can see all of Bermuda from the top. And the light itself is beautiful, it is still working, the light shines every night.

The lighthouse is still in great shape and looks wonderful. They take care of the lighthouse very well. The views from up high are breathtaking. Well worth the hike up to see the island from 360 degrees.. awesome.

We walked over to the lighthouse from The Southampton Princess. It was a nice walk. The lighthouse offered great views of the entire island. There was a minimal fee of $2.00 per person to climb up to the top. The gift shop was quite nice too. They had a few unique items that were very reasonably priced. We had a... More

If you want to get the best view of the island Gibb's Hill Lighthouse is must see. The tea room is nice too but don't expect any substantial meals.

We walked to the lighthouse from our hotel. The property is clean. Nice inside. Only 2 dollars per person to go up to top of lighthouse. Views are amazing from the top. Would recommend to anyone. You don't need a lot of time. Climbing the stairs is only a few minutes. Staff were very nice.

A nice uphill hike from the bus stop, but worth it! Beautiful working lighthouse, the tallest cast iron lighthouse in the world. Nice gift shop. Great photo op here as you can see most of Bermuda from the hill. Also has a nice restaurant next door, which unfortunately was closed when we visited.

Visited this high point of the island to see the historic Gibb's Lighthouse. Although we were not up to climbing into and up the many stairs of the lighthouse, the 360 degree view was still spectacular. To our surprise the little gift shop had very reasonably priced souvenirs and we made a few purchases there.
