On land and on the water, Bermuda’s allure is boundless – and her appeal is catching the eye of more and more superyacht captains and owners. With the new superyacht legislation enacted January 1, 2020, the island allows transit, cruising and charter permits along with no passenger head tax and import equipment, furnishings, fittings and parts are duty-free.
Mild weather and climate make Bermuda a great place to visit year-round. It’s an island where understated sophistication, breathtaking natural beauty and vibrant culture blend seamlessly for an unforgettable experience. Famous beaches beckon travellers with pink sand and turquoise waters. Natural wonders like Crystal Caves, Spittal Pond and a shallow, colourful reef invite exploration. Lovers of tennis and golf will find no shortage of places to play – or high-calibre sporting events to attend. An ever-evolving food scene melds flavours from the far reaches of the earth into sumptuous dishes. The island offers history enthusiasts much to explore with the likes of the African Diaspora Heritage Trail and Town of St. George.
Plus, it’s easy to get to and around both on the ground and at sea.

Arrive at St. George’s Harbour
A UNESCO World Heritage Site and the country’s first capital, the Town of St. George is an ideal port of entry. Situated on the island’s northeastern tip, it’s the closest port to the ocean, and all shipping traffic that enters Bermuda must enter the surrounding reef in the vicinity of St. George's.
The harbour has offered a safe yacht anchorage for centuries and for many years was the only point of entry for customs clearance, though this has recently changed. Berthing is available at both Penno's Wharf and on the South Side of Ordnance Island. During the season (May and June) you will be required to Med Moor in these locations. St. George's is also only 15 minutes from the airport.
With buildings dating back to the 1600s, the quaint Town of St. George offers good restaurants, shopping, beaches and scenic walks.
