Ports

Saint George (often called St. George's, a confusion with the parish it is in) is the second town and former capital of Bermuda. Founded in 1612, the town still keeps its historic colonial centre (a UNESCO World Heritage site) - stroll around King's square and feel what the Caribbean was like under the British Empire. Choose to tour heritage buildings or the oldest remaining fortifications in the New World, built to protect the city from attacks by pirates and Spaniards.
