Tucker's Town/Bermuda

Introducing Tucker's Town

Tucker's Town, at the southwestern side of Castle Harbour, is one of the most exclusive corners of Bermuda. Much of it is occupied by the members-only Mid Ocean Club, which boasts Bermuda's top-rated golf course. Tucker's Point Club, the site of the former Marriott hotel, is being developed with new multimillion-dollar homes and a posh hotel and spa.

Tucker's Town Rd, which runs along the narrow peninsula east of the Mid Ocean Club, is the crème de la crème, bordered by a few dozen homes belonging to wealthy foreigners, including the American billionaire Ross Perot and the Italian premier Silvio Berlusconi.

From the end of Tucker's Town Rd, you can look across a narrow strait to Castle Island, a nature preserve that contains the stone remains of a British fort, one of the earliest fortifications erected in the Western Hemisphere.

Nonsuch Island, to the east, is a bird sanctuary where great efforts are being made to reintroduce the Bermuda petrel, or cahow, one of the most endangered birds in the world. The cahow's exotic predators have been eliminated and efforts are ongoing to restore the island's precontact ecosystem. Not surprisingly, human access to the island is restricted, but the Bermuda Biological Station and the Bermuda Audubon Society (292-1920) occasionally bring groups over; call for information.
