The Royal Naval Dockyard is one of Bermuda’s top visitor destinations. Located in Sandy’s Parish on the west point of the island, the Royal Naval Dockyard’s lush views and glistening clear water offer an intriguing contrast to its old stone buildings that once housed the British Royal Navy.
The Dockyard, as the locals call it, is a must-see when visiting Bermuda. You’ll enjoy exploring the site which was once the largest British naval base outside of the UK. Learn more about Bermuda’s history at the Maritime Museum, located in the Keep; or check out this 19th century dockyard from the water with watersports and snorkeling adventures.
There are also plenty of shops at the Clocktower Mall, including a craft market and glassworks, as well as the famous Frog and Onion pub. And even if you don’t wish to partake, you won’t want to miss a visit to Dolphin Quest, where visitors can swim with dolphins in the stone walled enclosure which was once used for unloading ammunition from warships!
However you choose to spend the day, you’ll revel in the history of the Dockyard as it’s charmingly juxtaposed with a tropical paradise.
