The Bermuda Department of Tourism is a government department responsible for promoting and controlling the island’s tourist industry.
It operates a number of resources that are extremely useful for tourists already in Bermuda or those still at the planning stage.
Visitor Information Centres
The Visitor Information Centres can provide tourists with a great deal of information to assist them with planning their vacation once on the island.
They can be found at the following locations:
- Hamilton Visitor Information Centre – now located at Dangelini’s Cafe next to Hamilton Ferry Terminal
- Dockyard Visitor Information Centre – gazebo on Dockyard Terrace, next to the ferry stop – also at Kings Wharf and Heritage Wharf when cruise ships are in port
- St George’s Visitor Information Centre – King’s Square, St George
Their helpful and knowledgeable staff are willing to answer any question visitors may have. They also stock brochures, bus and ferry timetables, sell tokens and passes for buses and ferries, and much more.
Every visitor should at least pick the pocket-sized map of Bermuda they offer. It’s easy to read and shows all hotels, attractions, golf courses, banks, post offices, transport links (ferry and bus stops, taxi stands etc.), and much, much more. It’s also free.
Official Bermuda Tourism Website
The Bermuda Department of Tourism has a website where it’s possible to obtain further information on hotels, restaurants, things to do and much more.
One of its strongest features is its events section. As well as major events like the PGA Grand Slam of Golf, it also offers comprehensive listings for hundreds of smaller things happening around the island. These include craft demonstrations, guided walks and tours, and art exhibitions.
The site also offers a useful downloads section with brochures and other useful resources for planning a successful trip. These include a map of the island, notice of intended marriage form, immigration regulations, guides to St George and the Royal Naval Dockyard, plus brochures for diving, fishing, restaurants, and more.
