Their web site said they were open. They were not. Trekked all the way there for a wasted trip. Why can’t they post up-to-date information?

With an admission fee of just $2.50, this is an attraction worth visiting. The views from the top of the lighthouse are great and well worth climbing all those steps for. There are several places on the way up where you can rest/catch your breath if you need to. You can see almost all of Bermuda from the top!

We decided to walk to the lighthouse via the nearby railway trail - a good option if you’re looking to make a day of it without spending too much money.

It is also just a few minutes walk up from South Road (Henry VIII pub) which is served by bus route number 7.

A must-see place in Bermuda is the Gibbs Lighthouse. The Gibbs Lighthouse is one of the oldest cast-iron lighthouses built in 1844 on a hill. It has 185 steps and is 354 feet above sea level. On top is a beautiful view of all of Bermuda.

Close to the Gibbs Lighthouse you can splash around on Horseshoe Bay and its famed pink sand beach. Nearby is Elbow Beach as well as Warwick Long Bay where you can take a half-mile walk on the sand or snorkel 100 yards out.

Gibbs Hill Lighthouse was an unexpected surprise. We walked the 185 steps to the top, and it was absolutely worth the climb. After stooping through a small low door, we walked the catwalk around the top for magnificent views of the entire west end of the narrow island. Absolutely stunning! The interesting history of the lighthouse is told on plaques inside the lighthouse, and there is a nice gift shop at the bottom.

Looking for a great view of Bermuda this is a must on your places to see while on Bermuda. Even if you don't make the climb up to the top it still offers a great view for those on the ground. The small gift shop also has some of the best bargains on the island. The views are absolutely breathtaking.

The view is fantastic and would highly recommend on a beautiful sunny day! The entry is $2.5 but you do get to see a 360 view of the island in a working lighthouse which at night you’ll see the light. There’s a restaurant there as well if you want to enjoy lunch and with a 5 minute drive you’re close to 4/5 different beaches

One of the best relaxing place I have visited in Bermuda. The view is spectacularly breath taking, a panorama view catches my heart. If you visit Bermuda put this on your bucket list.

Worth the climb. Very windy at the top but spectacular views. There were a lot of stairs and they are narrow so be cautious. Great gift shop for souveniers, drinks, etc. I went with my 2 adult children.

A tough climb for this bird but well worth it! The view from the top is spectacular! We did not venture outside to the platform— too windy that day. Tickets are sold in the gift shop. We talked to the man working there for about 20 minutes, about entering the lighthouse and so forth. Never did he mention that he was the one selling the tickets! So we went went back and bought them, not a big deal, just a little odd!

Handsome tower and building one can visit for a price. Park at the pub Henry VIIII and walk up and back then stop for a drink.
