There are half a dozen lighthouses to visit in Bermuda, and with over 300 shipwrecks dotting the island, you get to wondering how many potential shipwrecks these lighthouses have helped to prevent over years. With such an impressive (and dangerous) coral reef all around the island, these warning beams are essential. Gibbs Hill in particular was built in 1846 and is still active. Hurricane Fabian caused substantial damage in 2003, but in 2012, the government announced it would soon begin a $500,000 restoration project of the lighthouse. It is located on the highest point of the island in Southampton Parish.
