Overview

Kings Wharf port at the western tip of Bermuda was once a working fort, built by Britain's Royal Navy in the 1830s. Now this famous complex houses a maritime museum, crafts market, theater, arts center, shops, restaurants and more. Discover the underground tunnels and 30-foot-high ramparts, and observe displays of treasure recovered from the 17th-century shipwreck of a Spanish galleon. Shore excursions include kayaking, catamaran sailing, and biking the Bermuda Railway Trail. Photo buffs will want to snap a picture of Gibb's Lighthouse. Bermuda is an overseas territory of the United Kingdom in the North Atlantic Ocean, situated around 600 miles off the coast of the United States. It consists of around 138 islands, of total area 27 square miles. The major island is where the capital, Hamilton is located. An offshore tax haven, Bermuda has a blossoming economy, with a large financial sector.

Things to Do

King's Wharf has something for the entire family. Sample distinctive island food and saunter through the shops and museums of the Royal Naval Dockyard. Sail the lucid waters of Hamilton Sound. Find picturesque gems at the Bermuda Arts Center and Craft Market. If that's not enough, a snorkel park and water sports facility offer hours of activities to the venturesome.

One awesome thing to do is the sea Garden. Take the Bottom Peeper, a glass bottom boat that allows you to see shipwrecks as well as plenty of coral reefs, brain coral, and parrot fish. This trip departs from Point Pleasant in Hamilton.
