Founded in 1790 and named after the Island’s governor, Henry Hamilton (from 1788 to 1794), whose ancestor was Mary Queen of Scots, the capital City of Hamilton is rich in history, and is most certainly a port to consider if you plan a cruise to Bermuda.

Hamilton is the only city in Bermuda, with an area of only 75 hectares, it is one of the world’s smallest capital cities. It is also smaller than the historic town of St George, which is located on the northern tip of the island. Although the number of residents is estimated between 1,500 and 1,800, about 40% of Bermuda working population spends the day in Hamilton, bringing the numbers to around 15,000 people.

Roads are busy and you should know that visitors can’t hire a car in Hamilton or anywhere else on the Island. This means rental scooters are the most convenient way to travel around Bermuda and allow you to avoid rush hours and traffic jams. Elbow Beach Cycles are located only a few minutes from Hamilton, or you can use their free collection and drop-off service.
