Day 1

On The Water 

Catamaran Cruise

For a lux experience, celebrate milestone birthdays in style on either the Zara or ÜberVida yachts, sailing the coastline and stopping at a quiet spot for a swim. Dive in for a refreshing dip, grab snorkels for a peek below the surface, or paddleboard in a secluded cove. End the day with a sunset dinner prepared by the onboard chef. With its fully stocked bar, captain, and crew, this dreamy catamaran experience is the ultimate way to start your trip on a high note.

Are you feeling up for a solo ride? Rent a boat or charter from Pompano Beach Club, Hamilton Princess & Beach Club, or Cambridge Beaches Resort & Spa, and explore the waters.

Passing through this oasis will bring you luck with friendships and experiences as you embark on another year.

This day is bound to be an art lover’s birthday dream filled with boundless scopes of emotions and awe.


Find Adventure

Cliff Jumping

This is your year to take the plunge and conquer fears. Nothing gives you energy like cliff jumping into crystal clear waters on the count of three! Take the crew to Admiralty House Park, near Spanish Point on Bermuda’s South Shore for a thrilling climb of the limestone cliffs and ending with a picturesque picnic on the quiet beach of Clarence Cove.

Nature Walks 

Finish the day lying on the pink sands of South Shore Park, or take a tour of the Crystal Caves known for their out-of-this-world stalagmites of white limestone. Walk the lush forest of “Tom Moore’s Jungle” and go for a swim, or search for whales off the coast of Cooper’s Island Nature Reserve. You will want to bring your camera because each of these experiences offers an incredible photo opportunity!

Mini-Bus Tour

Learn about Bermuda's history and culture on a curated mini-bus tour with Titan Express Tours. Expert tour guides will teach you all about Bermuda's unique customs and culture. You can decide if you want to visit sites that explore Bermuda's history in the slave trade, or if you want to visit a range of beautiful vistas to get your photos for the 'gram. 

Bermuda Fish Sandwich

Fuel your trip with the ultimate Bermuda meal, a fish sandwich. Imagine, delicious fried fish with tartar sauce piled high on freshly sliced raisin or whole wheat bread. Each restaurant has its own unique version with different sauces and toppings, so try a few and find your favourite! We recommend Seaside Grill, Woody's or Mama Angie’s.

If your birthday trip falls between September 1st and March 30th, treat can yourself to a Bermuda Spiny Lobster. This local fare can be found on most menus during the season, but popular spots include Lobster Pot Restaurant and Boathouse Bar a Hamilton restaurant that has been open since 1974, and St George's seafood hotspot Wahoo’s Bistro & Patio. The lobster season is only seven months of the year for sustainability best practices and conservation purposes.
