Fall Fun, Just Your Style
Walk, Jog or Bike the Railway Trail
Rent a bike or lace up your sneakers and head to a stretch the Bermuda Railway Trail, which runs from end to end. Pass through lush wilderness and take in dramatic vistas of the coastline, farms and cottages along the way. Recharge your batteries at one of the many local eateries near the trail.
Get Immersed in Nature
Experience some of the island's most pristine spots with a customised excursion through Cooper’s Island Nature Reserve, Turtle Beach and Long Bay and explore these once-off-limits conservation areas. Climb to the top of the observation tower for sweeping ocean views and to spot wildlife like the Bermuda longtail, and stop for a swizzle at Gombey's.
Bermuda's Botanical Bounty
Join vegan chef Doreen Williams James on a tour of Bermuda’s edible flora: from culinary delights to medicinal mainstays. Savour these local finds with a cooking demonstration and dinner featuring tasty ingredients you foraged along the way.
LUXE ISLAND EXPERIENCES
Private Art Tour
The Hamilton Princess & Beach Club may be celebrated as the grand dame of Bermuda, but the resort is also home to an impressive collection of Pop and Modern Art, with pieces from major artists like Banksy and Jeff Koons. Book a tour on the Winnow app. Afterward, stick around for a chef-prepared champagne lunch.
Charter a Boat
Bermuda’s Wyuna, a 47-foot catamaran, will take you through Hamilton Harbour to Paradise Lakes and beyond. Expect hidden coves, quiet swimming holes, which you can explore with snorkelling gear you'll find on the boat. Venture further offshore via kayaks and paddleboards also stowed on board.
With its mild climate, radiant sunshine and astonishing natural scenery, Bermuda is perfect for al fresco dining. Opt for a picnic on a pink-sand beach, atop a dramatic coastal cliff or wherever the sunset drives you. Let luxury picnic provider Eettafel serve up a tantalizing spread that's as photogenic as your surroundings.
Soak Up Some Spa Time
Ease into the day with reinvigorating spa treatments at Sense®, A Rosewood Spa. A half-day spa package features experiences like a warming cedar massage, a signature facial and a mani-pedi – and leaves enough time for a beach excursion afterward.
Brunch & Bubbles
Head to Marcus' at Hamilton Princess & Beach Club for a curated midday meal in an opulent setting. The champagne – Veuve Clicquot or Dom Pérignon in this case – flows as you treat your palate to an exquisite buffet spread featuring everything from a "deconstructed" traditional codfish breakfast to a taco cart. A live local band plays on as you indulge.
South Shore Sights & Sunset
Tour Bermuda’s famously pink-hued South Shore beaches with Wanderlust Explorers via hiking trails that'll take you from beach to beach. As you explore, your guides will build a bonfire in the sand for you and your fellow explorers to gather around and savour sunset, local cuisine and a Rum Swizzle.
On & Around the Water
Thanks to the Gulf Stream, Bermuda and its surrounding waters remain pleasantly warm well into the fall months, lending itself to the island's enduring love affair with all things aquatic. Here are the top ways to experience Bermuda's marine culture.
Fall Colours, Bermuda Style
With its lively arts & culture scene and a full slate of brilliant festivities, autumn in Bermuda is anything but drab – from Bermuda's famously elegant fashion to its intriguing pastel-hued buildings to those colourful Gombey dancers.
With such a voluminous natural bounty from the land and the water, Bermuda is home to a blossoming food scene that comes to life in fall, when spiny lobster season draws locals to the surf and pleasantly warm temperatures invite you to experience every meal al fresco.
