Today begins with a sumptuous breakfast at Island Brasserie, Rosewood’s signature restaurant, featuring dishes like the Bermuda Benedict and globally influenced dishes sourced from land and sea.

This 18-hole, par-70 course offers a challenging yet scenic golf experience, with undulating fairways, elevated tees, and breathtaking water views.
For lunch, take a taxi to Woody's Restaurant, a beloved local spot renowned for its seafood and welcoming atmosphere. Enjoy their famous fish sandwich and a cold beer at one of their picnic tables, overlooking Boaz Island Bay. Then, take a glass-bottom boat ride to explore Bermuda's underwater world without getting wet. Marvel at sea grass beds, coral reefs, and even the shipwreck of the HMS Vixen.
Back on land, head to the Royal Naval Dockyard to explore Bermuda's maritime history. Visit the National Museum of Bermuda, where you’ll discover more than 500 years of Bermuda's history, including artefacts recovered from shipwrecks and exhibitions on the island's forts.
As evening sets in, head back to the City of Hamilton and relax with cocktails at The Cloud at the Waterfront, a charming rooftop restaurant with incredible views and casually elegant dining. Continue your culinary journey with a delectable dinner at Harry’s, named for famed Bermudian deep sea diver Harry Cox. He was also known for his special rum blend, which can be enjoyed at his namesake restaurant.
To cap off the night, immerse yourself in Hamilton’s nightlife. Stroll along Front Street, where you'll find an array of venues and historic pubs, each offering a unique atmosphere and fantastic views of the Great Sound and North Atlantic Ocean.
SOAK UP ISLAND CULTURE & WATERFRONT DINING

NATURAL WONDERS & NATIONAL DRINKS
Start your day with an awe-inspiring journey to the Crystal Caves, one of the island's largest and most dramatic cave systems.

Tours are available daily, and there's no need for reservations, making it a convenient and spontaneous adventure.
Then make your way to the legendary Swizzle Inn, located nearby in Bailey's Bay. Bermuda's oldest and most famous pub first opened its doors in 1932, and it was here that the island's national drink – the Rum Swizzle – was born. Pair the original concoction with a juicy burger, mouthwatering pizza, or traditional English shepherd's pie. Toast to your culinary journey through Bermuda!
