Bermuda's pink sand beaches and clear, cerulean blue ocean waters make it a popular get-away spot. In addition to its beaches, there are a number of sightseeing attractions. Historic St George's is a designated World Heritage Site. Scuba divers can explore numerous wrecks and coral reefs in relatively shallow water (typically 30-40 ft or 9-12 m in depth), with virtually unlimited visibility. Many nearby reefs are readily accessible from the shore by snorkellers, especially at Church Bay.
Bermuda's most popular visitor attraction is the Royal Naval Dockyard, which includes the Bermuda Maritime Museum. Other attractions include the Bermuda Aquarium, Museum and Zoo, Bermuda Underwater Exploration Institute, the Botanical Gardens and Masterworks Museum of Bermuda Art, lighthouses, and the Crystal Caves with stalactites and underground saltwater pools. At Admiralty House, locals and visitors enjoy cliff diving into the beautiful blue water and gazing at Dockyard in the distance.
The island has a distinctive blend of British and American culture, which can be found in the capital, Hamilton. It is not possible to rent a car on the island; public transport and taxis are available or visitors can hire scooters for use as private transport.
