...because the more good reviews, the more people will find this hidden gem. The beauty isn't just the nature reserve, but the rocks and the water along its edge. This is a mainly unknown tourist spot. When we visited, there were literally no other people in the whole park. This was the only time we had time along the water... More

Easy to walk around, good volcanic fossil structurs and dramatic views of the ocean. Some good bird and butterfly watching.

My husband and I visited the reserve while on a cruise and figured it would be crowded since two cruise ships were in Bermuda at the time - we were the only ones there! Just took our time looking at all the plants, birds and lizards. The best part was that we were able to get to the shore and... More

My husband and I arrived at the park on a hot, sunny, beautiful day. We took lunch on the shore. Except for a couple of people walking dogs (leashed), I think we were the only ones there. What a treat! Saw lots of birds; both terrestrial and shore birds, many varieties of snails and the limpet most people don't see.... More

I appeared to be the only visitor the other morning - around 11am. I parked on the Eastern side and its a short sloping walk down through a gate into the reserve. Wild chickens ambushed me as I got out of the car, butterflies took flight as I opened the gate, but no other people in sight or sound. Walk... More

As we were staying across the street from Spittal Pond, we had to go! Plus we have visited the park before on a previous visit. Spittal Pond Reserve is a great place to go if you want to get away from the crowds, and we hiked around here for about an hour and a half to two hours - and... More

We loved this walk out to the ocean and back. We saw many birds and reptiles (small lizards seemingly on every other tree trunk) as we trekked past the pond and out to the shoreline with its famous checkerboard rock formation and crashing waves. We didn't see any other tourists but did meet a few locals out walking their dogs.... More

We came into the park at the end farthest from Hamilton and quickly came upon the pond - quiet in February with a few species seen. I imagine the pond is quite a magnet for a variety of birds in times of migration and summer. A hike up a short hill and soon we were in the company of the... More

When I stumbled upon the back entrance to this park, I couldn't believe the beauty that was just around the corner. I went early in the morning and had the park almost entirely to myself. While most tourists were busy in noisy Hamilton or on tours, I was enjoying the stunning rocky sea views and the marvels of nature that... More
