I was taken on a private trip to the light house with two teens 17 & 15. We loved the light house and went to the top to see the crazy view. It scared me a little since one of my teens is very clumsy and I could imagine him falling off the top...very pretty and in pretty good condition!... More

... and better choose a day with not too much sun. We already visited the southern part of the island by bike, so this time we decided to head north. The Lighthouse offered itself as a point of attraction, and so we pedaled there. We also mounted the last stretch on the hill on our vehicle rented at the Club... More

This was fun - a nice treat to see something outside of the resort and it even had a guest book that you could sign. We were able to climb up inside, too.

Great views. Must see if your in San Sal! My husband and I drove the whole island and stumbled across it. The climb to the top was adventurous.

Loved the lighthouse. Tough drive up the hill in our little car but definitely worth the trip. The view is beautiful!! I found it the most amazing view on the island. It is kept up beautifully. Don't forget to sign the book.

This is a great place to stop during the obligatory "tour de l'ile". Virtually all of the beaches on San Sal are fabulous... this just gives you a bird's eye view of a whole bunch. Stop. Have a beer.

Don't miss this unique lighthouse. Great views of the island from the top with interesting machinery to make this lighthouse work each night. It is run like a clock with weights to move the light. No electricity used. Also has clean restrooms.

San Salvador is a little family Island in the Bahamas. Only around 1000 people live here. The Lighthouse is a special site and if you spend time on San Salvador you want to see it. The views overlooking the whole island and the many lakes and beautiful beaches is awesome. It puts things into perspective. Also, once you made it... More
