Trip Report Bermuda Anniversary Trip

Jump to last reply

My husband and I have just returned from a wonderful week in Bermuda. We stayed for the second time at Greenbank Guest Cottages, Salt Kettle, Paget. It's a block from the Salt Kettle Ferry landing which takes one directly to Hamilton. This trip we used the ferries and buses for transportation except for airport and a couple of returns from dinner. They worked so well. We visited the Historical Museum and National Gallery in Hamilton: the Bermuda Underwater Exloration Institute Museum, the Rogues and Runners Museum (formerly the Confederiate Museum), and the Bermuda Perfumery, which has relocated to St George's since our last visit. Good meals at La Trotteria, Portofino, Cafe Gio (St George's), and Hamilton Princess.

We were so glad not to be on a cruise. If you must cruise, try to select one that doesn't dock at The Dockyard. That area, though worth a quick visit, is a bleak concrete wasteland. If I came there on a ship, I'll really feel cheated of what is a beautiful island. While buses, ferries, taxis, and scooters can take you to other areas, why be based at such a bleak place?

This was our fifth trip to Bermuda -- and we're looking forward to our next in four or five years.
