A bit of a collection of crap shops for the cruise ships that come in here. Only notable exception is the National Museum of Bermuda which has restored one of the colonial buildings which was worth the ferry trip from Hamilton.

We loved taking the ferry to the Royal Navy Dockyard. It was great to walk around and see the history of the British Naval presence on the island.

The Royal Naval Dockyard is a beautiful spot at the northern tip of Sandys Parish, Bermuda. The water is beautifully clear blue and the fortifications are impressive. The Commissioner's House at the top of the hill is a non-exceptional colonial building with the Defense Heritage...More

Lots of shops to see and pass the time of day. The museum is a must and can consume 3-4 hours and is worth it.

It is nice for a casual day of strolling around, checking out the museum & few shops, and eating (enjoying a band maybe). You can also participate in the dolphin experience.
