For just $2.50 this is a great value place to visit, you learn about the history of the lighthouse and shipwrecks in the area plus get a great view of the whole island from the top.

Fun stop to check out the view. We rented scooters and went up to see the lighthouse on a brisk day. Good activity if you're bored with beach and pool.

Walked 0.5 km or so to the lighthouse from Fairmont Southampton. No sidewalk, but light traffic & no problems walking up/down roads (fairly level terrain). Clearly marked signs. Small gift/ticket shop (1 of the only places to buy Pepsi in area!). Manageable walk up 185 steps as broken up w/ multiple landings/rest areas. Very peaceful at top, w/ cliff/beach/ocean views....

So we set out to visit the lighthouse today & wasn't sure how it may go as I am recovering from a broken ankle & though maybe the stairs would be too much for me...but after meeting Heinz the lighthouse keeper he encouraged us to try the walk as the view up there were amazing & there were platforms along...

We walked over from our hotel near the Lighthouse. We had seen it from our balcony, but it was charming in person. The admission was reasonable and staff friendly. The view from the top is beautiful and worth the climb... but be forewarned... it involves a LOT of steps in very tight cramped spaces. The spiral staircase seemed to get... More

While we didn't climb to the top, from the serene park at the base of the lighthouse, you'll have some wonderful views of the sound and the south shore ocean.

It was worth the climb it took us( about 20 minutes) to get there.Breath taking view,fascinating structure & marvelous history with increasing need as the shipping industry poses ever increasing threats to the fragile islands & beaches of Bermuda ! Be prepared to spend some worthwhile time here!

Was able to walk to the lighthouse from the Fairmont, which is about a 10-15 min walk depending on your pace. Walk through the pathway on the golf course.. Which starts at the entrance of the club house. We didn't know and walked on the road until we came back. The lighthouse has a lot of history and it's nice... More

To get to the light house, I cut across the golf course, then through some bushes, walked a climbing, winding road and dodged a few cars and trucks. But it was worth it. I didn't eat at the restaurant. But I'm sure the food is good. Nice views from the top. You can see it from your balcony at the... More
