Honeymooners have been flocking to Bermuda for decades now, attracted by the island’s stellar year-round weather, spectacular pink-sand beaches and luxurious accommodations options. But what kind of Bermuda honeymoon is right for you? Well, that depends on what kind of couple you are.
For the Thrill-Seekers
You might be married now, but that doesn’t mean you have to “settle down.” For couples who love to get their pulses pounding, there’s no shortage of thrills to be found in Bermuda.
- Scuba Diving – There’s a whole world to discover under the waves in Bermuda. The island is one of the best scuba diving destinations in the world, with crystal clear water, colourful reefs and an array of marine life. And did we mention that Bermuda is the shipwreck capital of the world, with dozens of ships on the ocean floor, waiting to be discovered.
- Water Sports – On the surface of the water there’s plenty to do as well. Zoom across the waves to hidden coves on a jet ski. Give flyboarding a try – it lets you experience the rush of flying as you soar up to 35 feet above the water. Bermuda's ideal weather conditions make it a great place for windsurfing as well.
- Cliff-Jumping– You’ve taken the proverbial plunge and gotten married … now take a real plunge. Bermuda home to some seriously exciting cliff-diving spots. The most popular (and best for first-timers) is Admiralty House Park, with deep water and tall cliffs.
- Tom Moore’s Jungle – Out Here, it’s fun to get lost. Also known as Walshingham Nature Reserve, this is Bermuda’s own jungle, with lush mangroves, winding trails, fascinating wildlife and secluded swimming grottoes.
For the Culture Lovers
If you’re a pair of newlyweds who love discovering new cultures and immersing yourselves in a place’s history and mystique, Bermuda is filled with opportunities to uncover the island’s timeless romance.
- The Town of St. George – Discover where Bermuda began. A UNESCO World Heritage site, the Town of St. George is an utterly charming trip back in time filled with perfectly preserved 17th and 18th century architecture, winding cobblestone streets and fascinating historic attractions like St. Peters Church, Fort St. Catherine and the Bermuda National Trust Museum.
- Masterworks Bermuda – A treasure trove of Bermudian (and Bermuda-inspired) art, Masterworks Bermuda is an amazing island attraction. After you’ve seen pieces by Georgia O’Keeffe and Andrew Wyeth, take a stroll through the adjacent Bermuda Botanical Gardens, filled with Mother Nature’s masterpieces.
- Tom Moore’s Tavern – This spot isn’t just one of Bermuda’s best restaurants – it’s also the oldest. A candlelit dinner at Tom Moore’s Tavern is a perfectly romantic experience for honeymooners. And don’t forget to peruse the extensive wine list.
- Moongates – All over Bermuda, you may notice horseshoe-shaped limestone passageways called Moongates. As a longstanding island tradition, newlyweds step through them for good luck. A kiss under a Moongate is a true must-do for any Bermuda honeymoon.
