The parish covers just 2.3 square miles, but includes a number of exciting attractions you\'ll want to be sure to include during your Bermuda vacation!

WhatsCheaper.com also suggests a visit to Flatts Village, one of the earliest settled areas on Bermuda, and host to the annual Flatts Festival each October.    

Divided into two parts by the Harrington Sound, Hamilton is neighbored by Smith\'s parish and St. George\'s parish. Other natural features located in Hamilton include Trunk Island, Shelly Bay, Bailey\'s Bay, Crystal Cave, and Castle Harbor. Mount Wyndham is also located within this parish, and was the site of the Admiralty House where the attack on Washington DC was planned in 1815. Additionally, Tom Moore\'s Tavern, Crawl Hill, and Abbot\'s Cliff are other great Hamilton spots to visit.
