“Quite a view!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2012

You have to do it if you arte in Bermuda, but it is a long hot climb up 9 flights of stairs to get a few shots through the fly-specked glass once you have paid the entrance fee.

“Expensive”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 10, 2012

Very expensive for the standard of food. My wife had just a starter and I had a main meal and two glasses of wine which came to 120 Dollars plus taxi fare.

“You must see this!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2012

We went to the Lighthouse, stupidly, when three cruise ships had just arrived so the grounds, parking lot and gift shop were packed. But... apparently we were two of six people who decided to climb the stairs and check out the inside of the lighthouse. Trust me, the view is infinitely better from the viewing deck of the lighthouse and the $2 admission is so worth it. Plus, you get to learn some interesting facts about the lighthouse and the island on your way up (or down as we did). Like I said, this is a must do.

“Gorgeous View”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 29, 2012

It's only $2.50 per person to climb to the top of the lighthouse and you will find the most amazing view of the entire island. What a great deal-do it!!!

We were carrying our snorkel gear when we visited and the Gift shop owner was very nice about storing our bags in the shop while we climbed the lighthouse.
