WELCOME TO PARADISE
Grotto Bay Beach & Resort
Less than a 5-minute drive (or as we say “a quick hop”) from the LF Wade International Airport, head directly to the family-friendly Grotto Bay Beach & Resort. The grounds of this lush resort feature caves along the water's edge in Bailey's Bay, boasts two private beaches, a cave spa, and endless activities and water sports. Did we mention it’s the only all-inclusive resort on island?
Blue Hole Park & Crystal Caves
Waste no time. Put on a swimsuit and let’s go exploring. Head to beautiful Blue Hole Park, where you can dive into holes swarming with vibrant colored fish. Then it’s off to Crystal Caves, located in the East End of Bermuda near St. George, the beautiful 5-million-year-old underground caves feature stalactites and stalagmites and a boardwalk over azure waters to wow visitors of all ages.
Bailey’s Bay Ice Cream Parlour
Before turning in be sure to grab a sweet treat! This pistachio-colored cottage serves up roughly 30 delectable flavors of homemade, all-natural ice cream, from classic vanilla to gape nut and Dark 'N Stormy, a Bermuda specialty, Bailey’s Bay Ice Cream Parlour that will not disappoint.
Head to toward the East End of the island for a full day of history, beauty, and fun. Step back in time as you and the family rediscover the Old Towne of St. George’s, named a UNESCO heritage site. True to its name, Long Story Short tour is the perfect way to soak up the overarching town history.
Fort St. Catherine
If 'How To Train Your Dragon' was a family film-favorite, the kids will love exploring Fort St. Catherine’s amazing tunnels and towers, and even crossing a drawbridge. Built in 1614, Bermuda's largest fort features exhibits and artifacts showcasing 17th-century island life.
Hitting the beach is an absolute must, and you won't go wrong at either of these child-friendly gorgeous beaches. Enjoy the crystal-clear water, and even snorkel if you are feeling adventurous. Many fish will even come close to shore, making wildlife viewing easy and fun for kids.
A picturesque Inlet located halfway between the City of Hamilton and St. George’s, Flatt’s is packed with attractions, activities and plenty to see.
Bermuda Aquarium, Museum and Zoo
This ocean-side zoo and aquarium is an educational and fun visit for families with kids of all ages. Take a walk 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.
A hidden gem located in the heart of Flatt’s Village, this cottage, roadside restaurant has a large twilight outdoor patio with direct access to a children's play area. You can’t help but snap a photo in the quaint and cozy hotspot, as you indulge in their exquisite locally grown farm-to-table styled menu.
Hiking or Biking on the Railway Trail
Formally serving as a mode of antiquated transportation, Bermuda’s railway trails are the perfect recreational past-time. Spanning 18 miles, allow yourself to be greeted by scenic paths and even footbridges, with awe-inspiring views at every turn.
ROYAL NAVAL DOCKYARD
Swimming with dolphins may sound like a distant fantasy. Well, in Bermuda let your wildest dreams come to life as you take part in a ‘Dolphin Experience’ located in the sheltered lagoons in the National Museum of Bermuda.
Hop on a Segway Tour for an exhilarating experience. These high-tech, environmentally friendly, self-balancing vehicles help you reconnect with your inner-child, perfect for a family vacation. Put on your explorer’s hat as you glide your way around Dockyard and catch a glimpse of historic sites like the National Museum of Bermuda and the Commissioner’s House, home to the Defence Heritage Exhibit that describes the military history of Bermuda.
Need to cool off. We’ve got you covered. Located in the historic Keep Fort on the Royal Naval 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. Who said you can’t build a beach on an island?
After working up an appetite it’s time to chow down. Packed with TV’s on every wall, sleek pool and foosball tables, and a Bermudian sporting legends hall-of-fame, Boundary Sports Bar & Grille has something for the entire family. Perched above the Par 3 Turtle Hill Golf Club at Fairmont Southampton, prepare to be wowed by mouth-watering smoked barbeque as well as an all-Bermudian welcoming staff.
CITY OF HAMILTON
Bermuda Underwater Exploration Institute
Deemed the unofficial “entrance” to the City of Hamilton, this high-tech interactive learning facility is sure to excite children of all ages.
You can dive in without ever getting wet!
Once used as a playground in the 1800’s, Victoria Park is the city’s first public park. You can’t miss the large cast-iron bandstand that, to date, provides a base for concerts in the park.
