Gibbs Hill Lighthouse Tips (5)

The views from the lighthouse

If the weather turns questionable one thing you can do is go to the lighthouse. There is a nice little breakfast nook where you can drink tea or spit pineapple juice all over yourself and the floor if you're so inclined, then climb the 186 steps to the top. A few exhibits occupy each floor so you don't climb all at once, and when you get to the top you have a great view of the island or as much as weather conditions will allow you to see. The costis $2, done on the honor system.

Views of the islands in every direction

Gibbs Hill lighthouse with its 185 steps to the top was closed for repairs when we were there in February 2003. We were using our bus pass on this trip, and walking to reach the base of this cast-iron lighthouse, we were already winded, as it is located at the highest part of the island. However we found the drive was lined with loquat trees and we stuffed our pockets with these apricot-like fruits.

Gibbs Lighthouse in...

Gibbs Lighthouse in Southampton allows for a splendid view of the entire island, and of the ocean. If you don't mind heights, and the 100 and some stairs, then it's a great place for you!!
Resturant on the bottom is very good. Cozy place! Also as you climb the light house you can stop and look out from small windows, and read about Bermuda and the lighthouse.

Gibbs Hill Lighthouse

On top of the lighthouse you'll almost overlook the whole island. It's cheap and definitly a thing to do if the weather is nice (lucky us, we've never had rainy weather!).
