Crystal Caves

The Crystal Caves are a definite must-see for visitors to Bermuda.

Films with a Bermuda Connection!

Over the years I’ve probably watched just about every film that has a connection to Bermuda (or Bermy as it is called locally).  Here is my list, I’ll keep updating it..

America cup coming to Bermuda

Bermuda is full of surprises. The fact that the country is actually a collection of 180+ islands is one of them; and that this relatively tiny nation, (population around 60k), is hosting the 35th America’s Cup is probably another. The fun starts in late May, as confident sailors with powerful boats compete in the qualifiers of this long standing competition, sponsored by Louis Vuitton.

Bermuda Railway

There used to be a railway line on Bermuda!   Its such a shame that it was sold as it would have been a fantastic tourist attraction even if the only a small part of the line was retained.
