High resolution images of the Island's national parks are now available online for all to see — thanks to the wonders of Google Street View. The feature offers panoramic views of locations in Bermuda, allowing people to virtually tour their chosen area from the comfort of their homes.

Roads, trails, beaches and even the inside of buildings have also been added to the growing Google collection.

The initiative began in late 2014, when representatives of Google Maps contacted the Department of Parks in Bermuda to seek permission to capture high resolution imagery of numerous points of interest across the Island.

The operator from Google's Street View Special Collects team Hope Garza arrived in May 2015, and spent two-and-a-half months capturing images of more than 20 of the Island's national parks with assistant park planner Justin Lavigne.

Pictured are several images available on the website, which can be found at www.instantstreetview.com.
