Was able to walk to the lighthouse from the Fairmont, which is about a 10-15 min walk depending on your pace. Walk through the pathway on the golf course.. Which starts at the entrance of the club house. We didn't know and walked on the road until we came back. The lighthouse has a lot of history and it's nice... More

To get to the light house, I cut across the golf course, then through some bushes, walked a climbing, winding road and dodged a few cars and trucks. But it was worth it. I didn't eat at the restaurant. But I'm sure the food is good. Nice views from the top. You can see it from your balcony at the... More

We stayed at the nearby Fairmont Bermuda and the lighthouse is accessible with a short walk through the golf course and through some streets. You pay admission for the lighthouse at the gift shop. You'll get tickets which you drop off at the entrance up. The stairs aren't too tough for anyone in decent shape. There are areas with small... More

We enjoyed a brisk walk up to the lighthouse one morning before breakfast. It is quite steep at times, but I'm a middle-aged man with an impressively proportioned waistline and found it to be very do-able (I did not, it should be noted, attempt a climb to the top of the lighthouse itself). Once to the top of the hill,... More

Great hiking at one of the highest spots in Bermuda. Great for Sunset and overlooking the bay and sea. You can eat there and got to the top. Lots of steps! :)

My husband and I took the bus here and walked the less than 1/2 mile from the bus stop to the lighthouse. We thought it looked further than it did and asked someone how much further we had to walk but it wasn't far at all! I believe it was $2.50 to climb to the top and it was so... More

The title says it all. This was a great little tourist attraction - that was CHEAP! To walk around the grounds was free and it was only $2.50 to walk up the lighthouse to the top. The history is outlined on 3 different levels on the way up and you can walk outside once you reach the top. A storm... More
