Unlike some of the other light houses this one does not have landings to rest on.

I have a bad back and weak legs, and asthma, it was a struggle for me but i made it and it was well worth the struggle.

I think it would be quite hard for you

My advice is visit the garden outside the light house

In my view it's worth a go

It's steep and narrow

But people do stop and let you pass by

It is a steep and narrow iron stair with a couple of wide areas. It allows only one person, but it is not too crowded.

Look on the web for key west light house steps. It will provide a sense of how they are.

Best,

I agree with what the other reviewer stated.....get there early if you are able to do the stairs as it is a straight climb to the top with no breaks. Trust me the views are worth it....great way to see Key West.

Your question does not state your physical condition. The climb up is on a narrow circular stairway (64 steps) made of iron with smallish steps and a thin iron handrail. The stairway is narrow and there are no "landings" along the way. Assuming you are inclined to go, would suggest you arrive first thing in the a.m. when there is not a lot of up and down traffic on the stairwell. Crowding may be unpleasant.
