      • Bailey's Bay Ice Cream Parlour: We'll treat you to this local shop, famed for its delectable, homemade goodies in flavors both traditional and with a little flair.
      About this King's Wharf tour

      Revealing Bermuda's bewitching beauty hardly requires the lilting words of a young, Irish poet. But it doesn't hurt either. In 1804, Tom Moore wrote, "These little islands of Bermuda form certainly one of the prettiest and most romantic spots that I could ever have imagined, and the descriptions which represent it as like a place of fairy enchantment are very little beyond the truth."

      Though he only stayed three months, the charmer is the unofficial namesake of this particular lush wonderland he roved. With "T'was thus, by the shade of a calabash-tree," he captured the locale in beguiling rhyme and verse. Follow his footsteps, deep into Tom Moore's Jungle, past mangroves and sinkholes, among melodic birds and frogs and forest creatures. Burrow into labyrinthine tunnels with stalagmites and stalactites. Leap into sparkling Blue Hole – a sunken cavern – plus a seawater pool seldom kissed by the sun.

      "Oh! could you view the scenery dear," high atop St. David's Lighthouse. From such great heights to the depths off Cooper's Island – a premier dive spot where "In glassy calm the waters sleep, and to the sun-beam proudly show the coral rocks they love to steep." Swim or snorkel amid brilliant marine life, around a preserved reef. Rather lounge? Whip out a journal, and wax poetic on the secluded beach.

      You'll stop for a local fish-fry lunch along the way, savoring your meal and a ginger beer, picnic-style, along with the mesmerizing vistas. Also on the menu is family-owned Bailey's Bay Ice Cream Parlour, where you might be inspired to compose an ode of your own. Give it 30 verses: one for each flavor.

      Tom of the jungle

      Thomas Moore came to Bermuda as an appointed registrar to the Admiralty. For all his rhapsodies about life on the island (which, in his case, apparently included a scandalous obsession with a colleague's wife), Moore found his job uninspiring and society limited. He soon departed for the U.S. and met President Jefferson, developing an intense dislike for both.
