Ports

The British Virgin Islands are part of an archipelago on the beautiful Caribbean sea. Looking at your amazing surroundings you won't need many attractions to make you feel good, but if you like to keep active, there's plenty to do as well. Go snorkeling in the clear blue sea, dive to explore the Rhone shipwreck, and in the evening relax in one of the many pirate-inspired bars. Don't forget to charge your camera!

St. George’s is a Bermuda port and has many historical sites such as Old State House which was the first stone building constructed in Bermuda (1620) and welcomed the parliament until 1815 or Saint Peter's Church, America's oldest Anglican church. The fortifications of the city consist of a set of fortified islands built from 1612 to protect the city from attacks by pirates and Spaniards and are the oldest remaining fortifications in the New World.
