What To Do and How to Get AroundSince there are no rental cars in Bermuda, other modes of transportation are readily available. Bermuda has one of the highest concentrations of cars per square mile than many countries, and with narrow, winding roads, a high number of traffic accidents as well. It's recommended that visitors use public transportation or cars for hire to get around.

Royal Naval Dockyard The Royal Naval Dockyard was built in the early 1800s by slaves, and British and Irish convicts. The entire area was restored in 1980, and it is now a bustling commercial site, featuring the Maritime Museum, Bermuda Arts Center, Dockyard Craft Market, a Snorkel Park, watersport facility, events and more. The Clocktower Mall houses fine shops and restaurants.
The museum offers displays about ocean navigation and exhibits with treasures from the sea, coins and much more. The Commissioner's House is believed to be the first cast-iron building of this size in the world. The building stands on the highest point on Ireland Island offering magnificent views of the azure blue Bermuda waters.
Bermuda's BeachesBermuda is blessed with amazing and plentiful beaches, many of which have a soft pink hue. The reason for the pink tint is due to a tiny creature called Foraminifera, a red one-celled organism that makes its home under the coral reefs. When it dies, its skeleton falls to the sandy ocean floor and mixes with other shell fragments and invertebrate debris. The mixture ends up as pink, fine sand that's washed ashore.
