A Government spokesman said: “In the interest of safety, personal watercraft are prohibited from operating in the area of Mangrove Bay, southwest of a line between the southern end of Watford Bridge and the easternmost island at the tip of King’s Point.

“All boat operators must adhere to the five-knot no-wake restriction.

“The Bermuda Police Service marine unit will patrol the area along with the coastguard and focus on offences including antisocial behaviour and operating a vehicle whilst impaired.”
