There are a number of delightful beaches in the parish of Devonshire, in Bermuda. Treat yourself to a day at the beach.
This is a parish in a predominant, centralised part of the island. It was christened after a major investor, originally from the UK. He played a part in making the parish a colony and would eventually become its inaugural Earl. His name was William Cavendish. Devonshire is distinctive among the parishes of Bermuda, as it doesn’t have any ports or harbours. This has prevented it from holding a prominent position in the maritime or shipping trade. It is known though for having a calm, laid back ambiance, with beautiful beaches you can spend some free time and lounge around in.
