We are sailing next week to Bermuda. We would like some help in deciding which shore excursions we should take. we are willing to do them on our own. We are not renting mopeds but will use the buses, and cabs if neccessary. thanks for any advice!
I have been to Bermuda twice with the most recent this July/Aug. You can explore the island on your own, especially since bus and ferry service is available. We hired two of the locals to give us a tour. Their vans had AC, which is great for those hot Bermuda days. They took us to the major beaches, to Gibbs lighthouse and anywhere we wanted to go...they even stopped at the grocery store for us. If you like beaches you can visit Horseshoe Bay, Elbow Beach, Tobacco Bay, or St. Catherine's Bay. If you're docked in King's Wharf you can walk to Snorkel Park. Riding the ferry is not only a good way to get around but a nice break from walking!!! Hop on, sit back and relax. Or if you're looking for something different visit the Brewery....a great place for lunch (and a few beers). Ask the locals, they can help you a lot.
Bermuda has a great transit system, you can do it on your own or by cab very easily.
Horseshoe Beach is great. Their are also underground caverns to explore, beautiful botanical gardens to stroll around. Good shopping in downtown Hamilton. St. George's is full of history. All of the nightlife is pretty much centered around the major hotels, especially in Southampton.
