Reviewed June 30, 2014

We Cruised to Bermuda on the Norwegian cruise line the Dawn. We were there for 7 days. Just beautiful in every way. We on tours of the island. the ocean was just great and the sand was pink. The food was wonderful and we just love it in every way possible. We went with another couple and they said the same. This is our 3rd trip to Bermuda. I can't say enough about it!!

“Colonial town crier at St. George's, Bermuda”
Reviewed June 16, 2014

One of the fun and historical attractions to watch while at St. George's parish in Bermuda is the reenactment of the colonial town crier and decreed punishment of dunking a person found guilty in a local trial. Visitors and audience watch and participate in lowering a person seated in a dunking chair into the harbor/canal water. The crowd cheers and applauds as the miscreant declares his/her innocence. St. George's town square also contains original stockcade and town hall buildings to explore. The parish has many scenic attractions from the harbor and schooner ship docked there, to the lush tropical park gardens or the statue of St. George. Climb among the cannon turrets at Fort St. Catherine and imagine fighting off Caribbean pirates at the entrance to the Bermuda island's deep water channel. Relax in one of the many pubs and restaurants for a cool beer or dine or traditional fish & chips. A short 40 minute ferry ride from King's Wharf Royal Dockyard will take you to St. George where you can spend an afternoon enjoying the shops, scenery and historic sites.

“Small but worth visiting”
Reviewed May 29, 2014

Many visitors to Bermuda go for the beaches and might not go for the culture, if you go to Bermuda visiting St. George's Parish is something you will not forget. Small and charming, preserved as it was over 200 years ago, very easy to visit in one day. Depending where you are I would recommend taking the ferry and returning by public bus. I took the ferry from the Royal Dockyard to St. George, then the bus to Hamilton and ferry back to the Royal Dockyard, all for 15 dollars with the one-day pass. There are several historical buildings, small shops and restaurants through the town, there is also a beach within walking distance. You can spend a few hours or a whole day.

“Overlooked gem”
Reviewed May 6, 2014

Visitors to Bermuda often don't make to St. George's, all the way on the East End of Bermuda. And that is an unfortunate mistake. St. George's is where it all began and was the original capital. The Town is a UNESCO world heritage site. The vast majority of the buildings date to the 17th and 18th century, and are still in use today, as homes, shops, businesses and restaurant. You can feel the history as you walk the streets and alleyways. The beaches aren't pink-sand but the snorkeling is great and the views spectacular. Small enough to see the major sites in a day, but well worth a longer visit, too.
