Adventures & tours

Under the golden Caribbean sun, the streets are filled with perfect photo opportunities. Stroll along the quaint, long, narrow streets dotted with old lamps.

Many of the wooden houses painted in pretty pastel colours were built by the Bermudians who first settled the island. These buildings date back to the 18th and 19th centuries when the town began to serve as a hub for political life and for the lucrative salt trade. It's well worth a visit here before heading to the historic iron lighthouse.
