If you google it, there were quite a few hits. From what I read it is the port in Bermuda that is for the larger ships. Bermuda is a gorgeous island that has plenty of great places to visit. I just went to and typed in Kings Wharf. It's been a long time since I was in Bermuda, I remember horseshoe beach and that's about it. Hope this helps.

King's Wharf is one of three places in Bermuda that cruise ships can dock, the other two being Hamilton (the capital) and St. George.

King's Wharf is on the western side of the country and has been built up in the last several years to have stores, galleries, etc within walking distance of the ship. There is a water taxi right there than can take you on the 15 minute ride to Hamilton. There is also bus service from King's Wharf to Hamilton, among many other places. Hamilton is the hub of the public bus service on Bermuda.



I will be there in July.
Would you recommend activities around Kings Warf, or would you take the water taxi to Hamilton?
Appreciate anyone's thoughts.

Personally, I feel Hamilton and St George's had more to offer than King's Wharf. King's Wharf if very small. You can get walking maps in Hamilton and St Georges. Just following them around and seeing all the history can take all day. St George's has an old fashion public dunking in the town square at noon time which was neat to watch. You can also take the bus to many beaches- Horse Shoe Bay, Elbow Beach, Tobacco Beach, and St Catherine's are a few. You can also take the bus to Gibb's lighthouse and climb to the top.

Given your short time in Bermuda (about 8 hours), if you'd like to visit Hamilton or St. George, I'd either recommend a ship's tour or take the ferry over first thing. A ferry schedule is located here, but be sure to pick up a current one when you are there. There's not a whole lot to occupy your time at King's Wharf, unless you want to go helmet diving or visit the maritime museum. It is a pretty neat area to walk around, though, but IMO it's not the "real" Bermuda.
