One of the most popular attractions on Bermuda is Crystal Caves, and even Mark Twain himself visited the natural site.

As you descend into the underground Crystal Cave, look to the roof, where you will notice breath taking white stalactites covered in crystallized soda straws. Then look to the bottom, where a crystal clear underground lake is present. Over 50 feet below the surface you can view rock formations, which gives you an idea of exactly how clear the water is.

Crystal Caves, a part of Bailey's Bay, is located in Henrys Hill, a village in the general vicinity of Castle Harbour; it is three miles (five kilometers) to the south west of St. George.

You can reach Crystal Caves via bus routes 1, 2, 10, and 11 from Hamilton and St. George.
