This is one of the longest roads in Bermuda. We did parts of it to get to different places. One favorite part was the bus ride between crystal caves and spittal pond and then walking along the road for some half hour.

You can see some of the South Road from the bus, but it's better on a moped where you can stop where you want and admire the amazing views. Skittish of a moped? Hire a taxi driver to take you on a tour. The views you see from the pullouts are the views you came to Bermuda to see.

There is nothing that really stood out about the road itself---it is the scenic areas one can access along it. I took a motor scooter rental around much of the island, and South Road was the access to many of the outstanding beaches in Bermuda. One must be careful there, as there are lots of curves and buses to watch out for.

Clearly this road skirts along the southern edge of the island. It has recently been resurfaced at the eastern end so is much better for mopeds now than it was a few years back fewer potholes. For the most part it is quite wide and although not much of it has sidewalk / pavements there is enough space for walkers and pedal cycles. Take care though, it is easy to exceed the speed limit because it is a wider road and police may be lurking in the hedges with the speed camera. The speed limit like the rest of the island is 35 kmph or 22 mph. The road on the west side of the island goes past the south shore beaches and there are some impressive views as the road in many places is quite a bit higher than sea level. It takes slightly longer to reach dockyard going this way but definitely worth it for the views. When I take visitors I will always go west along South road and come back via harbour road - this way the passenger gets the best views of the coastal aspects of Bermuda. Eventually going west South road meets middle road and together they are the only road to the end of the island. As roads go on the island this one is pretty good for surface, non- winding and width.

Didn't brave the moped and took the bus instead. Very good way to see the shoreline along Sandy's and Warwick Parish. Stopped at South Shore Park and experienced some of the most amazing beaches in the world. Must drive along South Road when in Bermuda.
