Fodor's Expert Review St. David's Island

St. George's and The Eastern Parishes Silversea
Free

In a place famous for manicured lawns and well-tended gardens, St. David's Island feels comparatively wild; nevertheless, the real highlight is—quite literally—St. David's Lighthouse. Built in 1879 of Bermuda stone and occupying the tallest point on the East End, this red-and-white-striped lighthouse rises 208 feet above the sea, providing jaw-dropping views of St. George's, Castle Harbour, and the reef-rimmed south shore. Although the lighthouse itself isn't accessible to the public, this is also a great place to spot humpback whales passing through Bermuda's waters in April and May. St. David's is also the site of L. F. Wade International Airport, the main gateway to Bermuda.
