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.

...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

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
