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.

Don't Miss This!

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.

A place with the view
Oct 2019
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.

Beautiful view

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

Best View in Bermuda
Jul 2020 • Friends
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.

stunning 360 views

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.

Lighthouses are cool

Great View of almost the entire nation of Bermuda from up here! Until 2014 this lighthouse still used the original rotating mechanism. Of interest for the US East Coast folks- this lighthouse is due east of Hilton Head Island.

Had a Great Time!!!
Mar 2020
Gibb's Hill Lighthouse was my first light house I actually went in and went up all the steps. Gibb's Hill had 185 steps and it almost made me have an asthma attack but I did make it. The view was very nice. I took panoramic pictures of the entire island. I went to the gift shop and bought post cards, an ornament and a key chain.
