This is where cruise ships would dock on Bermuda, in
Sandy’s Parish. It was once a British Naval outpost but
today, in contrast, it is a bustling facility designed to
accommodate the island’s tourists as they make their
way off the ship to shop and explore. Everything a guest
may need to know about the island they can find here
at one of the visitor information centers. Buses are also
on site and they can rent scooters from this location
if they so desire. Marina, shops, restaurants, museums
and beaches are all within the dockyard’s vicinity. You’ll
surely find something interesting to do here.
