Tips for transportation
Shop carefully for your bus passes. If you are stopping more than 1 week, buy the one month pass. Always use passes and not money or single trip vouchers. It is a lot cheaper to buy what you need (or more), than to try to pay-per-trip. DON'T RENT SCOOTERS. Driving is bad. The chances of injury and treatment costs are NOT worth it. Stay at a place where bus or ferry is easily available. Some details. The "real" bus maps (can't be found online) show every bus stop with a black square.

May to October, the island is very crowded with cruise ship visitors. They overload the buses, the ferries and restaurants. The buses also run their air conditioning too low at this time of year. They are freezing!

A great tradition is the Annual Exhibition - on the 2nd weekend of April (we are nearly always there - don't book on top of us!!!!) - 2012 it is on the THIRD weekend and we will be "on island". What's with the 3rd week??????
We support the Annual Rubber Duck Derby by buying hats and mugs, etc. This is in the first weekend of June, Ordnance Island, St. George.

More
There is virtually no electrical noise. LF bands are super. However, bring noise-cancelling headphones as most places are hard walled and tiled, so noise is carried easily and in echoes.

Bermuda Fish Chowder - ratings by Paul.

  2. Bone Fish Grill - Superb. Almost equal to Ruth's.
  3. The Lobster Pot  Really, really good! Almost equal to Ruth's
