For the very best bird's-eye view of Bermuda, don’t miss this working lighthouse on a hill in Southampton Parish. Opened in 1846, it’s the world’s oldest cast iron lighthouse—a gleaming white=-washed tower standing 117 feet high and 362 feet above sea level. To reach the viewing deck, climb 185 spiral steps to the top where you’ll be treated to a stunning panorama of the south shore and the islands of the Great Sound. Along the way up, you’ll see exhibits about its construction and the enormous 1,000-watt bulb, which can be seen by ships more than 40 miles out to sea. When you’re done, grab lunch at the Dining Room, a cozy restaurant housed in the former lighthouse keeper's cottage, serving pizza, sandwiches, and local seafood.
