Great spot for souvenirs

My daughter walked to the top of lighthouse while I shopped at gift shop. Between the heat & wind, she didn't linger at the top but said the views were great.

A trip to Gibb's Hill Lighthouse is always a must. This past trip we had a wonderful dinner, outside under the stars. Great food, lovely atmosphere. The highlight of my trip.

Walked from our hotel to the lighthouse. Little gift shop at the base of the tower. Cute place to visit for some impressive views from the top. Worth a visit.

I had rented a scooter (tourist aren't allowed to drive cars) and started my journey up front street and decided to stop at the light house on the northern end of the island. Be sure to have sneakers in because your going to do a lot of stairs It's not pricy and when you get to the top you can... More

Very good views from the base of the lighthouse, but outstanding after a bit of a climb to the top (fee required). Interesting info panels on the landings as you climb and take a break. After spending a few days on the island, we confirmed that the price of souvenirs at Gibbs Hill were the best.

This is a well preserved light house. Great views from the Hill. The day we were there we did not walk up to the top. It was too hot. There is a nice little gift shop. There are clean bathrooms for use here. A nice stop to make.

Near the end of a tour, we stopped here. At first, I was content to take pictures from the ground, but eventually paid the fee to climb the stairs. $12, I think. It was a long hike, but worth it. A 360 degree view, with stunning vistas of nearby homes, the King's Wharf, and beaches. The mechanics of the lighthouse... More

Such a great place to spend an hour or so. Absolutely stunning views of the island from the top - well worth the climb and the $2.50 entrance fee. Gift shop is very good value too (much cheaper than other shops in the towns).

We walked from the Fairmont Southhampton Princess to Gibb's Lighthouse to check out the view and dine at the restaurant there. Definitely worth the trip. The views are breathtaking and restaurant delicious. You won't be disappointed.

For $2.50 you get to climb the light house which is a climb! When you reach the top a walk the circumference of the light house you are in awe of the beautiful sight below you. It has quite a history which you can learn on your climb. A nice scenic trip after leaving Horse Shoe Bay.
