Still standing tall and lighting the way for sailors who navigate the intrepid waters off the coast of Bermuda, St. Davids Lighthouse has been around for well over 100 years. The beam stretches out over 20 miles into the ocean at night, but during the day serves as a popular attraction for guests who yearn to see as much of Bermuda's country and seaside as possible in one swoop.


St. Davids Lighthouse is a lovely stone structure, painted white and accented in red. The lighthouse stands 55 feet tall, but 208 feet above sea level, and features a panoramic view of westward waters.
