We are empty nesters that like walking and sightseeing. The Frommer’s walking tour of St. George looks like something we would like.Any suggested itineraries and transportation tips from people who have been to Bermuda will be greatly appreciated.
We’d like to see some of the iconic beaches, but we don’t usually hang out at beaches for very long.
The cave tours sound interesting.
We’ve heard/read good and bad things about using scooters on Bermuda. Neither of us has ridden a motorcycle or scooter before. Not sure if this helps on a scooter, but we do bicycle often in traffic (in my case over a thousand miles a year for 20 years).
First time cruise to Bermuda, looking for suggested itinerary.

Here's a printable map that can be enlarged to see the distances between the places you want to see.They also have the availabe at the Visitor's Centers but having one ahead of time can help in your planning.
As far as bicycles, I only have seen very few. The locals get quite impatient with the low cc of the scooters and will literaly breath down your neck, then fly out around you. Don't know what they would do coming across a bicycle. If you want to do some biking, you can do it on the rail trails out of harms way There's a thread asking about renting scooter that you might want to look for and read. A number of local do not recommend renting them.....one a Dr. who has seen the aftermath in the ER.
As far as not spending too much time on the beaches, may I suggest going to Warwick Long Bay and follow the trails to see some of the uncrowded secluded ones and make you way to Horsehoe Bay. Beautiful views along the way
There are many places that you can go and there is a complete rail trail around the island.
Have a great time
