It's only an 80 step climb to top of the lighthouse, the 360* views are awesome. It has a nice little gift shop. Friendly staff. If you don't want to climb the steps, the views from ground standing near the huge weathervane are just as...More

Gibbs Lighthouse is a great inexpensive must do. Climb to the top and enjoy 360° views of the island... the Great Sound where the 35th America's Cup was held, the historic Royal Dockyards, downtown Hamilton and (of course) the Atlantic Ocean like you've never seen...More

We went here one day using the public bus system. We had to walk up a fairly steep hill about 15 minutes from where the bus dropped us off, but it was easy to get to. Good views once we got to the top.

There is a plaque mentioning that the Queen herself stopped at the lighthouse to enjoy the view - it is indeed breathtaking. Lovely place to hike to. Lighthouse light was visible at night from Salt Kettle and likely many other locations.

The Gibb's Hill Lighthouse was our last stop on Ricky's Island Tour. What gorgeous views from this lookout! Although visitors are allowed to climb stairs to the top of the lighthouse, we kept our feet on the ground. There is a small souvenir shop and...More

If you don't mind a little cardio exercise and not afraid of heights, the view is well worth the effort. It's $2.50 to enter and you can pay at the gift shop. It's about 185 steps to the top but you know how it is...More

Really amazing views over the whole island, puts into perspective the amazing place you're staying, also a lovely gift shop at the entrance and restrooms available.

The only reason to climb 185 steps is for the amazing views of the island... unless you are challenged by your significant other. It's only $2.50 per person. And if you are out of shape, take the stairs slower. But do go, it's worth it!

Any bus 7 or 8. It is equidistant from middle road and south beach road. I suggest south road as Henry 8ths pub is at end of road for refreshments or food.

Hi! Very few! We went on a humid, rainy day and the trek up was a little worse then it would have been if nice weather. I believe they have on-site restrooms however. Hope this helps.

It's open, although I understand there's talk of more extensive repairs in the future.
