These no-frills tourist apartments (pronounced "para-keet") are as close as Bermuda gets to a roadside motel—basic, unadorned, and inexpensive studio, one- and two-bedroom units, which to the delight of budget travelers are just a five-minute walk to Elbow Beach and a 10-minute taxi to Hamilton. For meals, there’s the on-site Paraquet Restaurant—more of an American-style diner, actually—that serves soups, salads, burgers, and breakfast until 11am. Guests can also grill their own food on the outdoor barbecue, which is located in a courtyard complete with shaded picnic tables.
