Spittal Pond is owned by the Bermuda National Trust and the Bermuda Government’s Department of Agriculture. One of Bermuda’s most spectacular open spaces, this 64-acre reserve is part of a necklace of wetlands along the South Shore, providing a diversity of habitats and an amazing variety of birds, especially during the migration seasons. It is Bermuda’s largest bird sanctuary. While home to many native and endemic plants, Spittal Pond has unique features such as Portuguese Rock, the oldest evidence of humans on the island, and the checkerboard, a geological formation of marine limestone with a distinct pattern of cracks.
