St. George’s by taxi is approximately a 10 minute drive (remember- the speed limit is only 20 miles an hour!). There is also the possibility of arranging cruises or fishing trips with our superb local contact! Please advise if you are interested in arranging one of these trips.
Ten minutes away by bus, cycle or taxi from the historic town of St. George’s, Clearwater Beach, restaurants, grocery stores, and a movie theatre the apartment is within walking distance of the bus routes. There is a restaurant in St. David’s that is walking distance from the apartment called Eliana’s – very pleasant!
The old town of St. George’s features many attractions. Every Tuesday night when the cruise ships arrive there are vendors in the Town Square and the shops stay open until 9 pm. There are walking tours daily and a special re-enactment of the old ducking stool – a punishment reserved for nagging or gossiping women from a long time ago! Every street offers wonderful old houses perched right on the road allowance or set deep in lush gardens. Many buildings are old, dating from the 1600′s and 1700′s. Development in the old town has been restricted so one has the pleasure of savoring an historical setting unmarred by inappropriate development. There are museums, old government buildings and meeting halls, and handsome forts to explore in St. George’s, as well as the replica of the small ship that rescued the early settlers- this is a particular hit with children, we find… The oldest church in the Western hemisphere is the truly lovely St. Peter’s Church with its exceptional timbered interiors, handsome collections of silver and furniture, and the flanking graveyard that holds so many of the island’s earliest settlers. Good shopping, restaurants, the waterfront, museums, churches, beautiful beaches and the St. George’s golf course are all located within walking distance.
St. George’s has every convenience for the visitor combined with a beautiful harbour setting. There is a shuttle service provided in the St. George’s area for a nominal charge, and the main bus service is about a 5 minute walk and will take you to all points on the island. The buses into St. David's stop running at 6pm. To return after 6pm, catch the bus into St. George's late into the evening and take a cab for the short run over to the cottage.
For the independent adventurer, there are several cycle liveries close by for those wanting to rent scooters or pedal bikes. Boat and land tours are available as well and a ferry service runs between St. George’s and Dockyard 7 days a week.
Dockyard is splendid collection of buildings dating from the early 1800’s used by the British Navy to re-provision their ships. Now converted to museums, shops and artisans studios, a trip to Dockyard is a must- and to get their by ferry will combine the pleasures of a cruise, with stunning scenery and a fascinating glimpse into Bermuda’s colonial past.
Nearby local restaurants in St. George’s include San Giorgios, Carriage House, Freddies, Temptations as well as the Waterfront Cafe. There is also an Internet Cafe on Water Street called Caffe Latte.
