It is no secret that Bermuda’s heavenly beaches are the perfect location for holidays relaxing, soaking up the sun and doing absolutely nothing. But beyond the soft pink sand and blissful azure waters there is a whole host of activities to keep everybody happy! You can take your pick from trekking through national parks, diving down to shipwrecks, playing a round of golf on a world class course or simply relaxing with a Bermudian Dark & Stormy cocktail enjoying a spectacular view…. and the list goes on! Below we have highlighted some of our favourite things keep you busy (or not) on the island.
Town of St George
Visiting this pretty town in the east end of the island is like travelling back in time. Established in 1612, St George has been named a UNESCO World Heritage site and is rich in history and colonial charm. Wander around the cobbled lanes, marvel at the beautiful old architecture, including the stunning 'Unfinished Church', and enjoy fresh seafood overlooking the harbour at Wahoo's.
City of Hamilton
The colourful capital city of Bermuda is the island's hub. A hive of activity boasting fantastic restaurants, bars and shops, yet still managing to remain quaint and charming with it's pastel coloured buildings and view over the harbour. Stroll along Reid Street and Front Street and stop for a coffee at Rock Island, or explore the national art collection of Bermuda at City Hall.
Tucked away on the island's east end beyond the airport, Clearwater is a beautiful beach with gorgeous water and long stretches of sand. But continue down Cooper's Island Road towards the tip of the land and you will find a hidden bay, nearly always deserted and absolutely stunning! In the warm months of late spring and summer, wild Turtle's cruise through the water here which makes for some wonderful snorkelling!
Royal Naval Dockyard
A British Royal Navy stronghold for more than 150 years, Dockyard is rich in maritime history and a must visit on any trip to the island. Home to the National Museum of Bermuda, which is well worth a visit for a fascinating insight in to Bermuda's history, there are also boutiques, art galleries, restaurants and even a chance to swim with Dolphins!
Gibbs Hill Lighthouse
One of only two cast iron lighthouses still in existence, Gibbs Hill Lighthouse is also the oldest of its kind, built in 1846. Climb the 185 steps to the top and be rewarded with some of the most spectacular views on the island.
Castle Islands, off the tip of Tucker's Point, can only be reached by boat. Small motor boats can easily be rented for half a day and the most beautiful secluded beaches and crystal clear shallow waters greet those who make the short journey. Highly recommended, particularly in the warm months of late spring and summer!
Bermuda Aquarium, Museum & Zoo
Bermuda's Aquarium, Museum and Zoo is a brilliant afternoon out and just as fun for adults as it is for kids! Home to seals, tortoise, exotic birds, turtles and even Oscar the Alligator, the centre's location on the edge of Harrington Sound is also the perfect spot for viewing the spotted eagle rays that frequently cruise through the waters here.
