Note: Unfortunately, the Google map data for Bermuda is not available for lower
zoom levels. This makes it impossible to show all of the island in one picture. You may
drag the map around for an overall view. When Google repairs their database to include
the lower level zoom data, I will restore the map to its overview configuration. --TPK
Bermuda is an incredibly beautiful island. There are many interesting tourist attractions
including golf courses, lighthouses, an aquarium and zoo, and dozens of pink coral sand
beaches. I was very fortunate to spend 13 days on the island in the early 90s. It's a great
place to visit!
Bermuda is one of the very few cruise ports where ships stay for multiple days, often switching
among two or even three ports during the stay.
It is interesting to note that from the satellite picture, all the buildings appear white,
despite the island's reputation for being full of pastel colors. This is because fresh water
is rare, and all buildings collect rainwater for their own private cistern. The roofs are
constructed out of soft limestone or concrete, and painted white.
The main cruise port is in downtown
the capitol of Bermuda. It is convenient for shopping and other city activities.
To the west is the
Royal Navy Dockyard,
which is the only port that can accomodate the largest
cruise ships. It is a little less convenient, since the trip to Hamilton takes about an
hour by bus. It is a little quicker if you take a ferry across Great Sound.
To the east is
It is a smaller town, with a unique culture and lots of history.
