TRAVEL

Welcome to Bermuda (Part 1)

On the 3rd day of the cruise the ship stopped in Bermuda.  We arrived around 8am and had until 3pm to explore the island before heading back home.  At first glance, the water is breath taking this has to be the prettiest blue water I have seen so far. The sun was shining bright and the weather was wonderful, maybe a nice 80-85 degrees. It is a relatively small island but very beautiful with rich history and historic buildings.

Bermuda’s pink sand beaches and clear cerulean blue ocean waters are popular with tourists. Many of Bermuda’s hotels are located along the south shore of the island. In addition to its beaches, there are a number of sightseeing attractions. Historic St George’s is a designated World Heritage Site. Scuba divers can explore numerous wrecks and coral reefs in relatively shallow water (typically 30–40 ft. or 9–12 m in depth), with virtually unlimited visibility. Many nearby reefs are readily accessible from shore by snorkellers, especially at Church Bay.  Bermuda’s most popular visitor attraction is the Royal Naval Dockyard, which includes the Bermuda Maritime Museum. Other attractions include the Bermuda Aquarium, Museum and Zoo, Bermuda Underwater Exploration Institute, the Botanical Gardens and Masterworks Museum of Bermuda Art, lighthouses, and the Crystal Caves with stalactites and underground saltwater pools.
