Though there isn't much in Somerset, Mangrove Bay is a beautiful spot to take a break and look and the boats out in the bay. The houses overlooking the bay are very colorful.

It's a beautiful bay, and when you teem it up with a boat hire from H2O watersports you're in for a great day. I loved the bay, and sailing around it was brilliant fun. Also home to the wonderful Non-Mariners event in late July/early August!

Now a local told us that was because we were there during low tide which may be part of it but we didn't bother sticking around. Maybe it's better to see by boat too I don't know. We drove our scooter there intending to... More

If you are touring Bermuda by boat, Mangrove bay is a nice place to check out. There are lots of turtles that come here to feed on the sea grass. You will see turtles coming up for air. They are quick, so it's difficult to get a photo, but it's a lot of fun.

Granted, i'm extremely partial to Mangrove Bay as for us it is 'home'. After looking at 21 spots to live (back in Oct. 2010), we chose Mangrove Bay because it feels so like you're 'on holiday' compared to the bustle of the rest of Bermuda.
