How to Get to St. George’s
One Day in Bermuda
Beaches are Bermuda’s main draw, and the white sands of Achilles Bay are less than a mile from the cruise dock. Also near St. George’s is Tobacco Bay for a day of snorkeling and sunbathing.
Of course, British colonial architecture is Bermuda’s other claim to fame, and there’s plenty to explore if you’re interested in history. St. George’s town is set around a lovely harbor, with whitewashed St. Peter’s Church, Georgian-era houses, period street lighting, intriguing alleyways, a National Trust museum and colonial reminders like the replica ducking stool in King’s Square. Hamilton is 24 km (15 miles) away, connected to St. George’s by bus and ferry services, and from there you can jump on another ferry to explore the former Royal Naval Dockyards.
Cruise liners sailing to Bermuda include Norwegian, Royal Caribbean, Carnival, Holland America and Princess. English is spoken and the local currency is the Bermuda dollar. US dollars are also accepted, but leave your British cash at home. There are ATMs and banks in St. George’s.
