The Bermudian

This secluded historic park is great for those who want a leisurely bathe in complete peace and quiet. Tourists rarely make it here since there is no direct bus route and it’s a longish walk from the bus stop on the junction at Ferry Road and Mullett Bay. The sand here is unique in Bermuda for its traces of ground volcanic rock, proof that our island sits on top of an inactive volcano. Its name, according to www.Bermudaonline.org, most likely recalls a time when a whale’s carcass was present in the area. Nearby is located the Bermuda Institute of Ocean Science, or BIOS, who find the bay ideal for research on silverside and reef silverside fish found here. Trails through woodland are close by.

Silversides form a large bait ball to evade predator fish like this Grey Snapper.
