I notice on the 2019 bus schedule/route that the #6 bus has a note that it does not service Clearwater Beach any more. What would be the closest alternative?

Best alternative... A 950-meter walk from the junction of Southside road and Cooper Island Road (still serviced by bus #6 taking Southside Rd). Next is to take a taxi from St. George. And next is to see if a beach shuttle is available by the Tobacco bay guys or others from St. George.

Do I get bus 10/11 from the caves into St. George 1st? This trip is 20min? Then do I have to go to the main St George bus terminal to catch the #6 to Clearwater Beach?

Take bus #1 or 3 from the caves... takes 20 mins to St. George bus terminal, and then take bus #6 (via Clearwater beach and not the one that goes via South Side Gate1 / Main Road)... takes around 25 minutes.

We will be taking the ferry from the Dockyard to St George's and were hoping to visit Cooper's Nature Reserve and Clearwater Beach. It doesn't look as though the bus goes down that far. What would be our best bet for visiting for a few hours? Taxi? And while I'm on the subject, is there a place to rent chairs and umbrellas at Clearwater Beach? Are facilities available?

From St. Georges some services of bus #6 go all the way to Cearwater beach, but not all, so check with the driver. Alternatively you can take a taxi. Gombeys Bar and Restaurant on Clearwater beach rents chairs and umbrellas. From Clearwater beach you can easily walk into Cooper's Island Nature Reserve.

Will be visiting via cruise may 2019. Interested in going to Gombeys Bar at Clearwater beach in St George. Saw in 2015 you advised someone to take the orange ferry to St George. Then at King Square take a beach bus for St Davids. Something like $6 all day pass. I'm sure the fare has gone up, but my question is: is this still what is recommend? Has anything changed? And approx how long is the bus ride? Thank you in advance for your reply!

Take the Orange ferry to St. George. The beach bus no longer operates, instead take bus #6 to Clearwater (note that all services of bus #6 do no go up to Clearwater, some do, so ask the driver). Kings Square to Clearwater beach is 4.5 miles and it's about 15 minutes bus ride.

Thank you, I've found so much great information on your site. My party is considering spending our beach day at Clearwater Beach or Cooper's Nature Preserve. There is a mention of some services and rentals possibly at Clearwater, but I want to know if that information is still current? Also, if we rent snorkel equipment at Clearwater, would be likely be allowed to take it to the other beaches in Cooper's Preserve, so long as we return it to Clearwater by the end of the day? Any updated information would be great. Thank you!

You can rent chairs, umbrellas etc at Gombeys Beach Bar adjacent to Clearwater beach. You need to check with them for taking snorkel gears to other beaches. Turtle beach is nearby, and they may allow.

I am arriving in Bermuda via cruise ship on . I went to Clearwater Beach the last time I was there via bus. I loved the beach and want to go back but was hoping for an easier way to get there. I looked at the orange ferry schedule and believe that this might work since I will be there during the week. Is the ferry terminal in St. George within walking distance of the beach? If not, what would be your suggestion? What would be the approximate cost for a seven passenger taxi to get there from the dockyard? I also saw something about the Bermuda Fun Bus but haven't been able to find enough information to see if that is an option. All I could find was that I could catch it in Hamilton. Thank you so much for any help and information you can provide.

Hi, take the Orange ferry to St. George if that works for you. Clearwater Beach is not at a walking distance. At Kings Square, you can take the newly introduced Beach Bus for St. Davids which also serves Clearwater Beach other than Carter House, St, David's battery, St. David's Lighthouse etc. You can get day tickets for $6 at the Visitors Information Center at Kings Square. The bus makes several round trips and you can hop on and hop off any number of times.
