L.F. Wade international is the only commercial airport serving Bermuda. The airport handles almost half a million passengers a year and offers regular direct flights to Europe, the US and Canada. Seasonal services increase the number of nonstop destinations available in the summer months. The airport is located on St David’s Island, around 25 minutes by car from Hamilton, the island’s capital. From the airport, you can take a private or shared shuttle to your hotel or catch a taxi to your final destination.
Passengers flying to Bermuda have a number of airlines to choose from.
As Bermuda is just 20 miles long and two miles wide, exploring the island is quick and easy. Bermuda has an excellent bus network, with pretty much all towns and villages on a route. When catching a bus, look out for the pink and blue painted poles that mark the bus stops. Pink indicates the bus will be traveling towards Hamilton, blue indicates it will be traveling away from the capital. Buses run every 15 to 30 minutes during the week. Weekend services can be less regular.
A small choice of ferries connects various destinations on the island. A ferry runs between the Dockyard and St George while all other routes depart from Hamilton. If you’d rather keep your feet on dry land, you can catch one of the many taxis that operate on the island.
As Bermuda is so small, walking is a good way to get around. However as some roads don’t have sidewalks, you’ll need to be alert as you make your way on foot.
The administrative capital of Bermuda, and the island’s largest city, Hamilton is home to a fantastic choice of museums, restaurants, shops and attractions. Visit the impressive Anglican Cathedral of the Most Holy Trinity, St Andrew’s Presbyterian Church and St Paul’s Church, all of which date from the 19th century. The Bermuda House of Assembly, the oldest parliament in the western hemisphere, is also worth a visit during your stay.
The original capital of Bermuda, St George’s is where settlers first arrived in the early 17th century. The oldest continuously inhabited English settlement in the western hemisphere, the town is now a Unesco World Heritage Site. Filled with bright, colorful houses, the town is home to some great museums including the Bermuda National Trust Museum, the St George Historical Society Museum and the Tucker House Museum.
If your main reason for visiting Bermuda is its fantastic beaches and sub-tropical climate, a trip to Horseshoe Bay is an absolute must. The soft pink sand and bright blue water give the beach a unique aesthetic, while the rugged coast makes the beach look like something from an old fashioned pirate story.
US passport holders don’t need a visa to travel to Bermuda for stays of less than three months.
