Hidden Gems of Bermuda might sound like a jewellery store, but it's something even better. It’s Bermuda native Ashley Harris’s guide service that offers the kind of gems that can’t be bought: a day of adventure and exploration of the places one would never experience without a local for a guide.
From the Jungle to the Sea
Seasonal excursions include an immersion into Bermuda’s only jungle, where guests explore caves, swim through underground caverns and come face-to-face with the island’s indigenous flora and fauna.
From there, the adventure moves to one of the highest peaks on the island, with a climb to the top of St. David’s Lighthouse to savour a 360-degree view of the island. To finish, there’s a descent to the coastline, where adventurers don masks and snorkels for an up-close encounter with the aquatic denizens of a beautifully preserved coral reef.
A Native's Favourite Eats & Drinks
When Harris isn’t guiding adventurous visitors through the island’s natural nooks and crannies, she enjoys pleasures a bit easier to find: TEN Café & Bar. Dining at Mad Hatters. Sipping a Yellow Bird cocktail while enjoying live music at Elbow Beach. “Bermuda enjoys a vast number of repeat visitors, but it’s not just the beauty,” she says. “It’s the people. Visiting Bermuda is more than a vacation – it’s an immersion into a community.”

Top Picks for Your Trip
“Our beaches, of course, are world-renowned,” Harris says. “I’d recommend Cooper’s Island Nature Reserve or Jobson’s Cove. Don’t miss Bermuda’s famous dish, codfish and potatoes. And if you’re the adventurous type, give our company a call. You’ll certainly see a side of Bermuda few people ever will.”
