The Town of St. George is at the eastern end of Bermuda (15 miles from the City of Hamilton). This is another extremely convenient cruise port but wind conditions may make it difficult/impossible for the small to mid-size cruise ships visiting here to safely enter the narrow, 220-foot wide Town Cut channel leading to St. George.
As a result, ships scheduled to stop here may have to go to Hamilton instead, or ships scheduled to depart Hamilton for St George may have to remain in Hamilton.
St. George Town has two berths, at Penno's Wharf and Ordnance Island, both within easy walking distance of the town center.
See Bermuda Attractions & Sightseeing
To visit nearby beaches from St. George, you have a choice of bus, minibus, taxi, moped/scooter or by foot. Tobacco Bay, a 20-minute walk to the opposite side of the island west of Fort St. Catherine, is usually not too crowded. Nearby Fort St. Catherine Beach is another good choice.
