Attraction | "Find out about St George before Exploring"

St George Visitor's Center Photo, Saint George, Bermuda
Quote:
The "Customs House" in St George was once a storage space that was property of the Queen of England. Today, it has been renovated to house a visitor's center that greets guests as soon as they arrive in the port of St. George by boat. If you have taken a cruise ship to the island, you practically trip over this building before you make your way into the town of St. George.Inside the building's plain exterior, one will find historical factoids and attraction information about St. George. The staff here is very friendly and willing to give advice about beaches or attractions you may wish to visit during your stay. They are also good at recommending restaurants and shopping destinations. I wa...Read More

Carriage House

Restaurant | "Waterfront Lunch"

Carriage House Photo, Saint George, Bermuda
Quote:
After a morning of shopping for knick-knacks in St. George's shopping district, my husband and I stopped into the Carriage House for a mid-afternoon lunch. We had been warned by the cruise ship staff that this particular establishment typically required reservations, but it seemed mostly desolate so we attempted to dine here sans notification. We were not warmly greeted by the hostess once she learned that we did not make prior arrangements for our dining. However, we were quickly seated outside upon our request. It seemed that this restaurant had a certain upscale air that they were trying to preserve even during non-peak hours. I found this attitude to be slightly snooty and off-putting, but none-th...Read More

Attraction | "Historical Fun Close to the Beach"

Fort St. Catherine Photo, Saint George, Bermuda
Quote:
Being people that cannot spend more than an hour or two in the sun at a time, my husband and I are always looking for excursions that are close to the beach that offer some shade during the sun's peak hours. Fort St. Catherine is the perfect example of such a diversion for a beach day spent on St. George in Bermuda. The fort is located on the side of the island that is furthest away from the town--- about a two mile walk from the cruise ship port. The fort is open daily from 10am-4pm; entry is a reasonable $5 per person.Fort St. Catherine is the largest and possibly the most well-known of the old British forts that can be found on Bermuda. It was built in the 1600's and has served in the p...Read More

Quote:
The minute we stepped off the cruise ship in Saint George, my husband and I were on a mission to find some food that didn't come in "buffet" form. The White Horse Pub was perhaps the first eatery that we stumbled upon. It is located on the main pier in Kings Square; a touristy cluster of shops and eateries that is mere steps from where the cruise ships dock.The White Horse Pub is a casual eating establishment that sits directly on the water. The restaurant is decorated with old pub and sports paraphenalia, lending to a very relaxed vibe. The waitstaff was very friendly and we were seated immediately upon telling them we had a reservation (which we were able to arrange through our cruise sh...Read More

Story/Tip

Finally! We were freed from our floating prison (ie. cruise ship) after two days sailing through treacherous waters from Boston to St. George, Bermuda. I didn’t really care what I did once I got off the boat, I just wanted off the boat! My husband and I packed our towels, swimsuits, sunscreen, and backpacks and headed on our way as soon as the gangplank was down. Having heard from our cruise director that there was a popular beach on the other side of the island (only a mile walk from the cruise ship terminal), we picked up a map from the tourist center and hoofed the most direct route to Tobacco Bay. This route ended up being a road that went straight across the island, but it also ended up lea...Read More
