Hawkins Island, Bermuda facts for kids
Originally named Elizabeth's or Tatem Island, it was renamed in 1809. Now privately owned by the Cox family, it was formerly the property of the Royal Navy, and was a prisoner of war camp from 1901 to 1902, during the South African War. The camp's watchtower yet stands, having been converted into a home. It is the most easterly of the group of islands stretching across the sound from the Salt Kettle peninsula. Hawkins Island has been reborn under the vision of Will Cox to create a private Island retreat. The first phase has been completed which includes a wedding venue and luxury villa which can sleep up to 8 people and includes walking and running paths.
