For the best views on the island, you’ll want to climb the eight floors up the spiral staircase of the Gibbs Hill Lighthouse. This still working beacon is 177 feet tall, and overlooks both the south coast and Little Sound while from the top you can see both Bermuda’s capital, Hamilton, and the Royal Navy Dockyard. Built in 1846, it’s the world’s oldest cast-iron lighthouse, and one of the best-preserved examples of its type anywhere. At the base of the lighthouse, The Dining Room restaurant serves everything from pizzas and burgers to British fare like black pudding and cottage pie.
