Docking at King's Wharf, Bermuda

King's Wharf is a former berthing point for the British Royal Navy at the western tip of Bermuda.  Understandably this is where the largest mega-ships come, to tie up at the two extra long berths. (See King's Wharf Map)

Once you  disembark down the gangway, you will have arrived inside the Royal Naval Dockyard, once dubbed the "Gibraltar of the West” and one of Bermuda’s most visited tourist sites.

It does not take more than a day to see and experience all of the sights and attractions here. On a 3 or 4 day cruise, that leaves plenty of spare time

Unfortunately, King’s Wharf (in Sandys Parish)  is geographically isolated from the rest of the island’s attractions. Unless you plan your days carefully, you could spend too much of your time stuck in traffic.

Beaches - No truly good pink beaches are nearby, and Somerset Long Bay in Sandys Parish is a good walk from where the nearest public bus stop at Mangrove Bay.

Instead take a 20-30 minute bus ride from the Dockyard (near the Clock Tower) to the South Shore beaches, most a short walk from the public stop.

Make South Shore's Horseshoe Bay beach, Bermuda's most famous, your first stop. From there you can walk to other beaches, then back up to a bus stop on the South Shore Road.

To visit Hamilton City and St. George Town: Take a ferry from the Dockyard instead of a cab or bus. It's both cheaper and faster. Copies of the ferry timetable are readily available at the Dockyard at no charge.

Ferries leave frequently for Hamilton, with only a short wait between trips. Ferries to St. George are much scarcer and a trip there needs to be planned ahead instead of spur-of-the-moment.
