Attractions from Bermuda


Crystal caves

In the Crystal caves you will find fantastic stalactite formations. These caves were discovered coincidentally in 1907 by two boys playing ball. When the ball disappeared down a hole, the boys dug down after it and found themselves in a vast cavern.

Devils hole Aquarium

In 1830, a Mr. Trott built a wall around his fish pond - manifestly to prevent people from fishing in it - and, naturally, was besieged with questions about what he was hiding. Thus, Mr. Trott permitted people to view his fish pond for a fee. These days, the deep pool contains sharks and turtles.

Fortress St. Catherine

This fortress is the most impressive sight on the island. The building of this magnificent fortress was begun around 1613 and it is now beautifully restored with cannons, tunnels and ramparts to satisfy even the most avid military historian. The fortress has been remodelled at least five times.

Gibbs hill Lighthouse

The second cast-iron lighthouse ever built soars above Southampton parish. The tower stands 1206 metres above the sea. Originally the light was produced by a concentrated burner of four large wicks, but today the beam comes from 1,000 watt bulbs and can be seen by ships 65 kilometres out to sea.

Old Devonshire Church

A church has been standing on this site since 1612, although the original was replaced in 1716. The replacement church was present until 1970, when it was almost wholly destroyed in an explosion on Easter Sunday. The present church is a faithful reconstruction.

Ordnance Island

A splendid Desmond Fountain statue of Sir George Somers dominates Ordnance Island. The ducking stool on the island is a replica of the one used to dunk gossips, nagging wives, and suspected witches in the water. Demonstrations are sometimes given, although volunteers say that getting dunked is no fun, even in fun.


Outside the South Shore you will find many shipwrecks in the ocean - they may be an exploring adventure for an experienced diver.

Spittal Pond Nature Park

A showcase of the Bermuda National Trust, this nature park provides you with many possibilities of walking on even long distances. From May to November more than 25 species of waterfowl winter here.

St. George

This unspoiled town with a spectacular view of the harbour of St. George was formerly known as Bermuda's capital, and the town is excellent for sightseeing. It is still captured by the charm of the British settlement in "the New World". Many buildings and the tortuous alleys are from the colonial time, and several constructions, being hundreds of years old, have been restored and placed in museums.

St. Peters Church

The tombstones here in Bermuda's oldest church-yard tell some interesting tales, indeed- this is the resting place of governors, doctors and pirates. Parts of the church date back to 1620; consequently it holds the distinction of being the oldest Anglican church. The present church was extended in 1713.

Tobacco Bay

In 1775, gunpowder bound for Boston was secretly loaded on this bay. Nowadays there are changing facilities and a refreshment stand on the fine beach that one can use while enjoying the spectacular ocean view and dreaming about the adventures of bygone times.

Unfinished Church

Work began on this church in 1874, but construction was halted when a schism developed in the church. Money for construction was later diverted to rebuild Trinity Church in Hamilton after it burned down.

Verdmont - the old house

It may have been prominent shipowner John Dickinson who built this house around 1710. Although it contains none of the original furnishings, Verdmont is a treasure house of Bermudiana. Much of the furniture has been crafted by Bermuda cabinetmakers with special and exciting history following every part of the house.


Cathedral of the Most Holy Trinity

Cathedral of the Most Holy Trinity This is one of the island's most impressive structures and the seat of the Anglican Church of Bermuda. The cathedral was the second church to be built on this site: Twelve years after its completion in 1872, Trinity Church was burned to the ground. The church is constructed of material from the British islands with a tower rising to 143 feet.

Fort Hamilton

On the eastern outskirts of Hamilton is this imposing old fortress built by order of the Duke of Wellington. This impressive fort has a moat, cannons and secret underground passages built in the cliffs. Outdated even before its completion, the fort never fired a shot in aggression. Today, you can enjoy the splendid views of the capital and the harbour from here.

Museum of the Bermuda Historical Society / Bermuda Public Library

The museum and the library are housed in the building where Bermuda's first postmaster, W.B. Perot lived. In the library you will find virtually every book ever written about Bermuda as well as a collection of Bermudian newspapers dating back to 1784. Moreover, the museum contains a fine collection of old English coins as well as a hand-written letter from George Washington "to the inhabitants of Bermuda".

St. Davids Lighthouse

Built in 1879 of Bermuda stone and occupying the highest point on Bermuda's eastern end, the lighthouse rises 62 metres above the sea. Although only about half the height of the Lighthouse in Southampton Parish, it nevertheless has spectacular views of the island.
