The mid-Atlantic island of Bermuda, a British overseas territory ringed by reefs, brims with endless promises for fun and recreation. Beyond the pink sand beaches and top-notch diving sites, it has a range of persuasions that is all its own.
Beach, sailing, and diving
Couples, families, and friends can set out for a day of fun on the water. The endless array of choices ranges from sailing and jet skiing to snorkeling and shipwreck diving. Kids can also enjoy swimming with dolphins, as well as helmet diving for an unforgettable undersea walk and delightful exploration of Bermuda’s rich sea life and pristine waters.
Nature and natural wonders
Eco tourism is at its best in this part of the world, where one can tour the ocean on a kayak or rent a bike to journey through the Old Bermuda trail. From humpback whales to exotic birds and ancient caves, Bermuda teems with natural wonders both big and small.
Arts and culture
Be in awe of the historic village of St. George, one of the first English towns established in North America and where the Unfinished Church dazzles with Gothic architecture and a serene uphill environment. Have a picturesque break from the beach life with a sightseeing tour of the Royal Naval Dockyard, the Bermuda Aquarium, Museum & Zoo, and modern arts and theater gems.
Dining and nightlife
Bermuda offers a range of gastronomic options and a bustling nightlife scene filled with upscale bars, sports bars, and clubs and lounges for the free spirit. It’s live jazz, reggae, and calypso year-round.
Sports and recreation
Take in some fresh air and unleash your competitive side at one of Bermuda’s six golf courses, or go for an invigorating hike, bike, or rock-climbing session on coastal cliffs. Simply find the serenity you are looking for at the subterranean limestone cavern where spa treatments also await.
