Lighthouses, what is it about them. The view from this location is fantastic even if you dont make the climb. A small gift shop with friendly staff. For a couple dollars you can make the climb to the top. Its going to be what you excpect, round staircase that needs medium effort. There are historical footnotes along the way that... More

Walked here almost daily and the road there was probably one of the safest in the are due to very little traffic. Nice shop for souvenirs and good prices too. Found Pepsi (diet) here and nowhere else on the island. Bermuda loves Coke!

Having traveled to many lighthouses along the eastern coast of the U.S. as well as in the Caribbean, this is like all the rest - a great view of the same ocean. Must like to climb!

This is another site we were taken to by our Tour Guide, Charlie's Taxi Service, on our recent cruise to Bermuda. We loved the view of the surrounding island and even our cruise ship in the distance. We loved their souvenir shop, and their souvenir prices were fabulous. My wife and I got a few souvenirs there that we had... More

Breathtaking views and great place to stop and take a scenic picture. Lots of stairs to climb to get to the top but worth it!

The light is a maritime working light and you may climb the 185 stairs for $2.50. We opted for the view at the base of the light and avoided the climb. We are told the restaurant is very good at the location but had some hurricane damage at the time. Should be back in service very soon. Easy walk if... More

Breath taking views of the island. A lot of stairs to climb to the top but well worth it. If you take byway tours you will stop there and Heidi the tour guide lived in the house.

I visited Gibbs hill lighthouse on a solo trip. This lighthouse is incredible! I climbed to the top and was rewarded with the most incredible view of the island. It's a very cheap attraction and worth every penny.

This iconic landmark is a must see on the Island. It has views from the top that gives you a wonderful view from one end of Bermuda to the other. Although the walk up can be slightly demanding it can be broken up by the historical documents and history of the island at each stage as you get nearer to... More

My husband and I just returned from a cruise on NCL's 'Breakaway' from NY to Bermuda. The cruise itself was wonderful and we have cruised many times. Our first time to Bermuda - we saw two new lighthouses and even climbed this one. The scenery is beautiful, the pink sands are picturesque and there are no tacky souvenir and cheap... More
