NEARBY ATTRACTIONS

The former capital of Bermuda, the Town of St. Georges is just a 15 minute walk away, but will take you back 400 years to 1612. Significant attractions  include: St. Peters Church, The Stella Maris Catholic Church,St. Georges Town Square, The Unfinished Church, Fort St. Catherines, The Deliverance Ship Replica in theTown Square,SomersGardens, and  the St. David’s Lighthouse.

The town of St. George’s is the oldest continuously occupied settlement in the English New World. The extraordinary atmosphere of the town is captured not in its gentrification but in the fact the folks live in these ancient buildings (cleverly modernized)  and that the ongoing matter of everyday business has somehow been managed within the confines of a pretty town with winding roads and oddly shaped buildings perched curbside.  The town’s history embraces many roles: a thriving frontier town, military and naval outpost and colonial capital to name but a few. Crammed now with pretty shops and attractive cafes, it is centred on a beautiful waterfront square, with museums and galleries just steps away, including a replica of the ship Deliverance. This tiny ship carried early settlers on to Jamestown,Virginiaafter a year of collecting food and ship-construction after their ship wreck en route from England. Their arrival , much delayed with desperately needed supplies after the terrible shipwreck, saved the colony in Jamestown from starvation. There is a fine park behind the town, gorgeous gardens and churches to explore. The Old Town has a pleasant assortment of shops, an amazing museum at The Globe Hotel  run by the Bermuda National Trust, as well as the lovely Tucker House museum on Water Street. There are several very good dining establishments as well as the bus and ferry depots. One is able to walk overland to Fort St. Catherine Beach and Tobacco Bay to enjoy some of the best snorkelling on the island .There is a pharmacy  and after a day of sightseeing , groceries can be picked up on your way “home” from Somers Market. We suggest bringing frozen meat, poultry or fish and some liquor/wine/beer with you when you fly in  as you are allowed to import these goods with you. It saves time and ensures you have those steaks for the BBQ cut just the way you like them.

Buses leaving from the town centre regularly heading over to the west part of the island, including the capital city of Hamilton(see schedule on website www.bermudarentals.com under For Your Information, and Transit Services). A mini-bus service operates as well out to St. David’s and into St. Georges, but it’s a pretty walk into town and won’t take long unless you stop to admire all the flowers and the charming gardens on your way. Bus/ferry passes are obtained by stopping off at the post office.

Snorkelling and swimming at nearby beaches includes some dazzling, rarely visited ones – especially the suite of flawless beaches at Coopers Island Nature Reserve.TobaccoBayis a 10 minute walk from the town centre and St. Catherine’s Beach and Blackbeard’s Beach are both a 15 minute walk . Clearwater Beach  leads you to the gates of the new  77 acre park called Cooper’s Island- a collection of sparkling  pink and silver sand beaches, endless horizons looking up the south shore coastline;  turtles, groves of native trees and flowers- just spell binding….Hire the minibus to take you to Coopers Island or use your mopeds.  Bring a picnic and drinks to enjoy on the lovely beaches.

Buses run into Hamiltonand beyond to the fabled south shore coastal beaches, Somersetand Dockyard, and there is a ferry service into Hamiltonas well: please check the schedules on the homepage of www.bermudarentals.com for times of departure and return. As the island is only 22 miles long, even at the sedate pace of 14 to 20 miles an hour, you can explore the entire island comfortably from your taxi, on the mopeds or by public transportation. These services include excellent bus and ferry service intoHamilton and a mini bus service which will come and collect you for a modest fee.

The St. George’s mini-bus (office: 297-8492, bus: 297-8199) travels around the area, and can pick up and drop off right outside the door (for a nominal fee).

The Mid-Ocean Golf Course and Tuckers Point Resort are less than 15 minutes away by taxi or by bus, and there is Ocean View in Devonshire and the Princess, Belmont and Riddells Bay courses as well as Port Royal as you proceed west along the island. See website www.bermudarentals.com for information about arranging tee times etc.

A boat rental or charter will permit you to explore the wonderful collection of islands, bird sanctuaries, old forts and spectacular beaches that are situated in theCastleHarbour area. You can drift down the coast and admire the palaces ofTuckersTown where the elite from around the world have built their luxurious hideaways.
