Bermuda cedar at Scaur Hill Fort on Somerset Island
|Main village:||Somerset Village|
Somerset Island is one of the main islands of Bermuda, lying in the far west of the territory, part of the main chain of islands, between the Main Island to the south and Boaz Island off the the north-east. It is joined to the Main Island by the remarkable Somerset Bridge; the shortest working drawbridge in the world. A further bridge links Boaz Island.
The main village, Somerset, stands in the northern part of the island.
The coast of Somerset Island includes several bays, notably Mangrove Bay in the northeast and the natural harbour, Ely's Harbour, in the southwest. Other features of the island include Daniel's Head, the island's westernmost point, and the historic Fort Scaur.
