Beautiful view of Bermuda!

There are a bunch of stairs to walk up, with a few floors telling you about the history. Be sure to bring your camera and spare some time to take in the view.

We weren't able to climb to the top since we arrived later. But we've heard it is worth it. The restaurant certainly is.

Dinner at the Lighthouse restaurant was delightful. Food, service and ambience were great. You can't beat the view either. If you are worried about your hair you should where a hat. It's a little breezy around the lighthouse.

Stunning views and a history worth finding out about. But the walk around the too of the lighthouse had my wife and daughter clinging to the lighthouse walls! Not for those with vertigo but worth the climb.

Quaint lighthouse, beautiful setting, and view from the top. Fairly easy climb with landings every 20 steps. Well worth the effort.

185 steps up and then down again but if you are this side of the island [Bermuda] it is well worth going up for the amazing views across so much water. The climb is interspersed with breaks for a breather and for reading informative and interesting comments on the history of the lighthouse. Was a bit spooked going outside at... More

Didn't get to try the restaurant but I got awesome pictures of the cit y at night. You can get a great view of the Fairmont Hotel and how wonderfully lights up.

Interesting to visit. The best part was walking all the way up to the top, going outside and seeing the beautiful views of Bermuda from the top railing!

Just a short walk from The Fairmont Southamton. The views at the top of the lighthouse are amazing! The ocean looks beautiful from there at times of the year.
