At $2.50 per ticket, it's hard not to like this attrcation. You climb 184 steps to the top of the lighthouse for spectacular views of the island. Not to worry, there are multiple landings to break-up your climb.

180 steps up so it was a good workout, and the view and cool breeze at the top is well worth the effort.

Rent a scooter and head up to the lighthouse for a look followed by a trip down to Henry the VIII for a pint and some lunch

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.
