The sky was a little cloudy so I decided to take a trip to Spittle Pond Nature Reserve for a walk and a little bird spot. Sadly I have no idea what birds are what apart from long tail, kiskadee and pigeons but nonetheless I had a lovely walk around the pond. Great sea views with waves crashing against the... More

I learned about Lynn Thorne from another reviewer on this page and hired her for a few hours for a birding trip when our cruise ship visited Bermuda. She picked me up at the pier and we set out for Spittal Pond. Although I had hoped to see more birds, it was a lovely hike around the pond. Lynn was... More

We spent a late Saturday morning walking around this serene and quiet nature preserve. The park actually spans over 60 acres but there is a trail that goes all around the pond. We saw lots of beautiful plants, flowers, and birds. Be careful with the Stinging Nettle.. we saw plenty of them along the path. Try to find Jeffrey's Hole,... More

Being a keen photographer, I usually judge an attraction largely by the quality of photos I get there. Did I get good photos at Spittal Pond? Not really. But what really made this a good experience was the tour given by Lynn Thorne. Lynn is an interpretive tour guide and wildlife rehabilitator. From the get-go, it was obvious that she's... More

Spittal Pond Nature Reserve is without a doubt our favorite stop that we made while visiting Bermuda. We had the park practically to ourselves, which was surprising, given how nice it is! The pond itself is just a pond, nothing exciting. We'd read that many different species of birds migrate here in the winter, but we mostly just saw ducks.... More

We had no idea what to expect but it has a beautiful pond and views is the water. It's free and nice place to walk. As I sat on the bus and drove by I realized no one has a clue how pretty this little hidden gem is.

Everyone in out exploration party - ages 7-40 - had a great time walking through the pathways and exploring the rocks, caves, and lookouts. We only ran into one other group while in the park From town it is a reasonable carb ride. Considering there is not exntrance fee to the park, this is a great deal and will keep... More

This is a very nice place. The pond is fresh water with many birds around the edges. There is a nice area to sit with picnic tables among the trees and a great view of the ocean.

Really isn't hidden, very easy to find, and a very short walk. Just go and walk a little. Such a beautiful spot---and birders like to visit, as both in the rocks some unique birds nest, and then in the marsh area early and late in the day, other birds are around. Take 30 minutes and check it out.

...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
