“One of Georgetown's highlights..”
Reviewed September 15, 2013

Maybe this is one of Georgetown's highlights but knowing the municipal and economic situation in Georgetown with no trash pick up's I was hesitant to even think about climbing to the top. They build a hotel near the waterfront only to have the construction stopped because it blocked the lighthouse's light.

“Closed”
Reviewed July 21, 2013

Lovely looking but was closed for the weekend possibly due to it being a public holiday?
Looked nice from the outside though and was worth a few photos.

“It's a non functioning lighthouse”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

Not much to see but it has history. A friend said had she known, she could have got us entry and the view is supposed to be spectacular. There was no way to know this as no signs, handouts, etc. Would have been nice I guess.

“Georgetown Panorama”
Reviewed January 24, 2013

This is one of the must-sees when visiting Guyana for a panoramic view of the capital. If you are a photo enthusiast like me, this one is definitely for you. The lighthouse is about 113ft high- if you are afraid of heights, pass on this one

“It's a lighthouse”
Reviewed November 22, 2012

It's a neglected lighthouse in a Fifth World country. In a not so good part of town, well there really isn't a good part of town.
