Getting Around Bermuda: Group Transportation Options
You’ve got the group all the way out here, now how to get them around?
Long, slim and shaped like a fish hook, Bermuda is a manageable 21 square miles. Easy (and safe) to navigate, most points of interest are within a 20-minute journey. But moving a large group can be a challenge in even the smallest of arenas. Your Event Planners and Destination Management Company can help coordinate a mode of transportation that suits you best.
