Devonshire Parish is located in central Bermuda, bordered by Paget, Pembroke and Smith’s. The area is predominantly residential, though it does offer a few interesting attractions such as Palm Grove Gardens and the Arboretum.
It is named after William Cavendish, the 1st Earl of Devonshire (1552 – 1626).
Ariel Sands closed in 2008, leaving Devonshire with no hotel accommodation. Options nearby include the Elbow Beach hotel in Paget Parish, the Hamilton Princess in Pembroke Parish, and the Pink Beach Club in Smith’s Parish.
