Paget Marsh is a nature reserve in Paget Parish on Main Island, Bermuda, jointly administered by the Bermuda National Trust and the Bermuda Audubon Society. A boardwalk runs through the marsh to allow visitors access to its heart.

The marsh covers 25 acres and preserves the appearance of Bermuda as it was when settlers first arrived. It is a lush and leafy green space of peat marsh, untamed by the imprint of man that has shaped the rest of the land of the islands; Paget March has remained much the same since before the arrival man.

Paget Marsh is an area of pond, mangroves, grasslands and forest, growing with cedar and palmetto. The pond and marsh are home to an array of wildlife, including many species of resident and migratory birds.

Its boardwalk winds past these features, and interpretive signs are provided to explain the reserve, its wildlife, its development and its preservation.
