A wonderful way to enjoy Bermuda’s scenic treasures is by taking a boat ride in Ely’s harbor. This picturesque harbor is located at the Sandy’s Parish next to Somerset Bridge. As you go around the harbor, you will not only see beautiful homes along its edges, you will also find this fascinating Palm Island. It’s a tiny islet full of palm trees and other plantation. The Palm Island is managed by Bermuda National Trust. It covers only about 1 acre of land area and is a nature reserve for various species of birds and wild animals. It’s a habitat for native Bermuda skink, a small lizard which is unique to Bermuda. You can reach the island by boat. Buses #7 and 8 come up to Somerset Bridge from where you can get Boat Rentals.
