This is a pleasant place to spend an hour going to the top for beautiful views. If you are staying at The Reefs it's not a bad walk there. The walk wasn't hard at all, 185 steps, and the steps only get steep at the top. There are a few landings to stop and pause if you need to. And... More

Last time we tried this the lighthouse was closed. This time we lucked out ! It's a workout to get to the top 185 narrow steps. But the view is incredible.

Lovely views. Lots of places to stop and rest on the way up to the top if you have anyone in you who cannot easily climb.

A beautiful view of the island. It is worth the 185 stair climb which has landings along the climb to take a breather if you need it. At the top wonderful views of the island!

Since we were located at an inn about 1 mile from here, we walked here three times. Amazing views from the property alone. Sit and have a snack at the lighthouse and overlook all of Bermuda. We watched the America's Cup teams practice while sitting one afternoon. You can see nearly the entire island of Bermuda. The climb to the... More

Great lighthouse with a visitors centre and shop. Very cheap to climb to the top but a bit scary if you are not a great fan of heights. Recommended.

Very good views of the island from here. It is really worth your time to walk up to the top of this lighthouse. An inexpensive Island experience you'll remember for a long time.

It's not expensive to visit the lighthouse so if you're passing through I recommend seeing if it's open. The view is amazing, even on a cloudy day! I don't remember if there was another way up other than stairs, so be prepared for that.
