Harrington Sound Bermuda

 
Harrington Sound is a wonderful inland lake in Bermuda surrounded mainly by Hamilton parish and Smiths parish. There is a small narrow inlet that connects this lake to Atlantic ocean, known as the Flatts inlet. The water in this lake mostly flows in through the underwater caves and subterranean passages. 
 
The sound has been named after Lucy Harrington, a lady from the Elizabethan days who did a lot for the Parish. Harrington sound has many small islands in it like the Trunk island and Rabbit Island. Some of them are inhabited through out the year. 
 
 
 
The water area is excellent for activities like swimming, snorkeling, kayaking, windsurfing etc. Although there are many types of fish that you can find here, over the years the population of shell fish like the scallops have been steadily decreasing.
