Georgetown Lighthouse, Georgetown

(40+ reviews on the web)
Lighthouse Tourist Spot
At nearly 200 years old, Georgetown Lighthouse is hard to miss with its iconic red-and-white stripes. While the lighthouse is closed and visitors are no longer able to climb the more than 130 stairs to the balcony for panoramic views, a sign at the entrance details the history of the structure. View it from the street or from one of the upper floors of the nearby Marriott Hotel. See Georgetown Lighthouse and all Georgetown has to offer by arranging your trip with our Georgetown holiday planner.
