  • St. David's Island (St. George's Parish): Part of St. George's Parish, this remote little island is often missed by many visitors, but it represents Bermuda at its most authentic.
  • Spittal Pond Nature Reserve (Sandys Parish; tel. 441/236-6483): Bermuda still has some oases that aren't overrun with visitors. One such place is the Spittal Pond Nature Reserve, a sanctuary for migratory birds. It's a true walk through nature, with flowering bushes and citrus orchards.
  • Crystal Caves (Hamilton Parish; tel. 441/293-0640; www.caves.bm): Bermuda has the highest concentration of limestone caves in the world, many of them with echo patterns and sedimentary deposits that some spelunkers consider mystical. Collectively, these caves form one of the island's major natural wonderlands. Their surreal formations took millions of years to come into being, and the great stalactites and stalagmites have a gothic grandeur. Crystal Caves, at Bailey's Bay, are among the best, and also among the few whose tunnels and chambers can be navigated by laypersons as part of a guided tour. Discovered in 1907, these caves house crystal-clear Cahow Lake.
