Set on complete opposite ends of the island of Bermuda, Somerset Village and the country's only airport are still less an an hour apart in a taxi. There are a number of reasons to recommend flying to a getaway here, but let's start with two: there are numerous international flights available, and the initial drive gives you the opportunity for a quick overview of the island right away.
Located in Saint Georges Parish, once served as a joint airfield for the British Royal Air Force and the US Army Forces and was called Kindley Field. Today, it is owned by the government of Bermuda and is without a doubt the most popular way to gain entry to the island.
Over one million passengers are served by this airport each year, welcoming flights from many major air hubs around the world including New York, Chicago, and Miami in the United States alone. Thanks to the fact that large commercial airlines likeand land here regularly, tourists can breathe easy knowing there is likely a flight available that fits into their schedule.

In Bermuda, tourists are considered to be people visiting the island for less than 21 days. If you'll be staying longer than that you will need to obtain a visa. Otherwise, your valid passport is all you will need in order to obtain entry.
Ground transportation between the airport and Somerset Village is limited to taxis and thanks to the fact that rental cars are banned on the island. Additionally, buses are not necessarily recommended when you're traveling with luggage. Still, they are possible to use and typically cost less than $5(USD) per person depending on the route you take. The taxi ride will cost less than $60(USD), and as previously mentioned, will take about 45 minutes.
Convenient to many of Bermuda's most desired tourist attractions, the town of Somerset Village itself remains small and underdeveloped, making it one of the best places for visitors hoping to get away from busy cities but still remain within arm's reach of everything they need. Flying to the island is going to be the most convenient mode of transportation, even when you consider the drive that lies in wait.
