Definately, worth the visit, although the panorama is more impressive that the lighthouse, but when you consider how remote and how long the lighthouse was built, it makes one appreciate how much effort was put into placing this lighthouse here.

Another easy place to hike on Brac. The view out to the Caribbean is amazing. A great place to get close to the brown boobie birds that nest right along the edge of the bluff. No shade so best to do walk here in the early morning or evening.

Very cool walk but only for people with good hiking shoes. The iron shore is very difficult to walk on. Saw lots of Brown Boobys and butterflies!

The footpath around the lighthouse area is easy to walk and has awesome views of the water, the birds, the surrounding nature, etc. You can access Peter's cave and see the little town from up above and get a nice, rugged island experience. You won't find drinking water, bathrooms, or anything else like that so come prepared with whatever you... More

It's about a 5 mile round trip hike, relatively easy. Some of it does require walking on the rough karst rock but most is more trail like. The views are great, lots of seabirds on the walk, booby birds nesting just feet from the path. The lighthouse has a relaxed feel, somewhat desolate, but very enjoyable. Yes, you can drive... More

The island is small so it did not take us long to get to the opposite end. The light house is anti-climatic. The view from the bluff just past the light is awesome. It was nice being that high off the water to enjoy the view.

Terrific walk to see the brown boobies up close. Some fluffy babies, as well as adults nesting and soaring on the wind currents. They are not shy, and I was able to get some super photos. We started at Peter's cave, hiked thru the treed pasture then over the open bluff to the light house. Took us about 3 hrs... More

Be sure to wear good shoes, pack water & snacks. Most of all be in shape, the walk takes up to 1-2 hours depending on your level of health, time you want to spend. This is really a nice walk to break up diving.

Our family hiked a portion of the lighthouse trail and had amazing views of many nesting Brown Boobies. Our daughter loved being able to see eggs and baby chicks. Be sure to wear proper footwear and bring water and sunscreen.
