“Enjoy the climb!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

Be sure to check it out. Although the grounds have not been kept up at all, it really is quite the experience to climb to the top of the lighthouse! We enjoyed the experience and the views and recommend it to anyone visiting Historic Hope Town! Best part: it's free!

“well worth the climb”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2013

It did not seem like 101 steps. The views are fantastic.The best access is from the Lighthouse marina, but you can also get there from the Hope Town Marina (where they have showers for $5!)

“Best way to see Hope Town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2013

No charge to climb the 100+ stairs to the top of the lighthouse. Squeeze through the small door to go out onto the deck and gaze at the incredible 360 Degree view of Abaco and Hope Town. If you go around dusk, you can watch (and maybe help) light and wind the light!

“A "must do" when in Hope Town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

After a 100+ stair climb to the top of this lighthouse, you will see amazing views of the island and Hope Town. It is amazing that this is free! Our 9 year old daughter absolutely loved the spiral staircase and being able to walk outside once you get to the top.

There is a small convenience store nearby, as well as bathrooms.

“Lighthouse”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

Fun, great views, not a difficult walk for fit people, and you can eat at restaurant nearby. On it's own point but pontoon boat can take you there or ferry
