Hi Raj, Love your informative website. It's been 10 years since I've been to Bermuda via cruise. I'm thinking of visiting Hog Bay and click your link to the tidal times. Question regarding the tidal times for 10/12/16 5:57 | 1.1 / 3.6 How do you read this? Thanks in advance.

Hi, the first two figures are the date and time. Next two are height of tide in meter and feet, so in this case 1.1 meter tide (i.e. 3.6 ft) which is considered somewhat high tide. A low tide should be around 0.2m (or 0.7ft).

Raj, thank you for the great site. I spent a lot of time researching Bermuda and your site had awesome tips. My wife and I took the bus from King's Wharf and hiked to the hidden beach at Hog Bay Park. It was incredible! We had the place (and the mile or so in each direction) to ourselves for 3 hours until we left to go back to the ship. The water was calm and we saw sea turtles, a large school of HUGE parrot fish, and several big sea shells (with critters still inside). The hike from the road takes about 10 minutes and is steep so it's not for older folks or for people pushing strollers. However if you want complete seclusion, get your hands on a tide chart and take the #7 bus to the park. Thanks again!!

Well we found Hog Bay Beach. Unfortunately there was very little beach left by the time we got there but there was some. We were leaving on a cruise ship so couldn't go back for the next low tide. It was beautiful! I'm so disappointed we didn't stop on our way back to the ship the day before, that would have been the perfect time. Just another reason to go BACK TO BERMUDA!!!!!!!! Thanks for putting all the information on a website. It was quite helpful on our island explorations.

Hi there ~ first I'd like to say I love your site. It is passionate and informative and I am sure I will be back here many times before my cruise on September 23rd. When was the last time you were at Hog Bay beach? Do you know when low tide usually is? I really want to check it out, but I need to make sure I can get there in that four hour window. Thanks!

Hi John, you will get month by month tide info in www.weather.bm. There is a menu option on the left for Tide times. You can choose a month and see the high and low tide times for all days of the month. However the tide times given in the charts are for St. George (i.e. eastern end of the island). For Hog Bay located at the western end, add 10 minutes. Hope this helps! Have a great time in Bermuda.

I lived at Doubloon Hill Farm (which is now part of Hog Bay Park) during the mid to late 60s. I agree it is a gem.
