Where to Stay

Less than a 5-minute drive (or as we say, “a quick hop”) from the LF Wade International Airport, Grotto Bay Beach & Resort is an ideal home base for families. The grounds of this lush resort feature caves along the water's edge in Bailey's Bay, two private beaches, a cave spa, and endless activities and water sports. Plus, it’s the only all-inclusive resort on the island

Day 1


On your first day in Bermuda, you’ll be eager to put on a swimsuit and go exploring. Head to beautiful Blue Hole Park, where you can dive into natural pools teeming with brightly coloured fish. Then, descend into a world of wonder at Crystal Caves, located on the East End near St. George's. The spectacular 5-million-year-old caves feature stalactites and stalagmites, plus a boardwalk over azure underground waters. It’s a surefire way to wow everyone in your crew. 
Next, head to Bailey’s Bay Ice Cream Parlour for a sweet treat. This photogenic cottage serves up roughly 30 delectable flavours of homemade, all-natural ice cream, from classic vanilla to grape nut and Dark 'N Stormy, a Bermuda specialty. 

Back at the resort, go for a swim or get ready for dinner. Grotto Bay Beach Resort offers multiple options for onsite dining, including kid-friendly food options. Savour a mix of cuisines, including Bermudian, American, and Mediterranean dishes.

Day 2


Head toward the island’s East End for a full day of history, beauty, and fun. Step back in time as you and the family discover the Old Towne of St. George’s, named a UNESCO World Heritage site. True to its name, the Long Story Short tour provides the perfect way to soak up the town’s historic highlights in a fun way.

At Fort St. Catherine, kids and adults will be fascinated by the historic landmark’s intriguing tunnels, towers, and drawbridge. Built in 1614, Bermuda's largest fort features exhibits and artifacts showcasing 17th-century island life. Plus, the fort offers amazing ocean views.

Next, head to Tobacco Bay  or Clearwater Beach. Hitting the beach is an absolute must, and you won't go wrong at either of these gorgeous, kid-friendly beaches on the island’s East End. Enjoy the crystal-clear water and go snorkelling if you’re feeling adventurous. Many fish will come close to shore, making wildlife viewing easy and fun for kids. 


Day 3


Located halfway between the City of Hamilton and St. George’s, Flatts Village is home to memorable sights, attractions, and activities. Start with a visit to Bermuda Aquarium, Museum and Zoo. This oceanside attraction is an educational and fun visit for families with kids of all ages. Stroll along the shaded paths to see animals and marine life from around the world, visit the Discovery Room for hands-on activities, or get up close and personal with local marine life at the touch pool.  

For lunch, check out Village Pantry. A hidden gem located in the heart of Flatts Village, this roadside restaurant has a large outdoor patio. You can’t help but snap a photo in the quaint and cosy cottage as you indulge in delicious, locally grown food from their farm-to-table-style menu.  

In the afternoon, go hiking or biking on the Bermuda Railway Trail. This former railway is now an island-wide recreational trail with beautiful ocean views. Spanning 18 miles, the pathway takes you through scenic landscapes and over bridges, with awe-inspiring views at every turn.

Day 4


Swimming with dolphins is a dream for many. Kick off the day with a ‘Dolphin Experience’ at Dolphin Quest, located in the sheltered lagoons of the National Museum of Bermuda.  

Then hop on a Segway Tour for an exhilarating exploration of Royal Naval Dockyard. These high-tech, environmentally friendly, self-balancing vehicles are perfect for a family excursion. Put on your explorer’s hat as you glide your way around Dockyard, passing by historic sites like the National Museum of Bermuda and the Commissioner’s House. 

Then cool off with a snorkelling adventure at Snorkel Park Beach. Located in the historic Keep Fort on the Dockyard complex is the crystal-clear lagoon at Snorkel Park Beach, a man-made shallow shoreline with all the necessary amenities to please the entire family. 

Rewind At Snorkel Park

After working up an appetite, it’s time to chow down. Dockyard offers many family-friendly dining options, including the Frog & Onion Pub and Restaurant, Bonefish Bar & Grill, and the Anchor Restaurant. Down the road, casual favourite Woody’s Sports Bar & Restaurant serves up one of the island’s best sandwiches alongside water views.

Day 5


Dive into ocean science without getting wet at the Ocean Discovery Centre at Bermuda Underwater Exploration Institute. This high-tech, interactive attraction is sure to fascinate children of all ages. See fun exhibits, admire a huge collection of seashells, dive into the mystery of the Bermuda Triangle, and learn interesting facts, like why Bermuda has pink sand. 

Then head to Victoria Park, an 1800s playground turned public park – Bermuda’s first. You can’t miss the large cast-iron bandstand that hosts concerts in the park. On a warm sunny day, you’ll see people strolling the evergreen grounds. But the real treat is Leslie’s Desserts, an illuminated food truck that’s sure to satisfy your tastebuds. Nearby, make a stop at Albuoy’s Point, the official Northern Point of the Bermuda Triangle.
