Where to Put Together the Perfect Picnic & Where to Enjoy It
The kitchens of many major hotels will prepare a picnic lunch for you, but you need to request it at least a day in advance. On Front Street in the City of Hamilton, you can order sandwiches at a cafe and pick up a bottle of wine or mineral water. If it's a weekday, the best place to buy picnic supplies is the Hickory Stick.
If you enjoy picnicking and biking, you can do both in Sandys Parish. Start by crossing Somerset Bridge (heading in the direction of Somerset Village), and continue along Somerset Road to Fort Scaur Park, where you'll enjoy a panoramic view of Ely's Harbour.
Another ideal picnic location is Spanish Point Park in Pembroke, where you will find a series of little coves and beaches. You don't need to go to the trouble of packing a picnic basket -- in warm weather, a lunch wagon rolls around every day at noontime. We also love to picnic at one of the island's best beaches, Warwick Long Bay.
