This summer, experience the best of Bermuda's natural and cultural worlds while staying safe and socially distanced across the island's 21 square miles. Relax on stunning pink-sand beaches, explore historic towns, get immersed in rich cultures and enjoy exhilarating experiences in, on and around the water. Dive in and add your own tale to the story.
Hop aboard the ÜberVida, a 70-foot luxury power catamaran that departs from Hamilton’s main car park for 90-minute sunset cocktail cruises every Friday night (departures are 6pm, 8pm and 10pm). There’s a cash bar onboard and the cruise is free.
2 Go Underground
For one of the most unique massages in Bermuda, walk deep into Grotto Bay Resort’s Natura Cave Spa. Housed inside an underground cavern with centuries old stalagmites and stalactites, the spa features private floating cabanas atop a translucent lagoon.
3 Tour With the Jet Set
Zipping around Bermuda’s waters on a jet ski is a great way to enjoy high-speed thrills and discover remote islands. Experience a breathtaking view of the island that you can’t get in any other way.
4 Tee Time
With more courses per capita than anywhere else and dramatic oceanfront fairways, the island is a golfer’s paradise—a perfect excuse to get the group out here.
5 Disappear in Nature
Walk lush forest trails, swim in idyllic turquoise grottoes and explore subterranean caves in Blue Hole Park, a 12-acre East End nature reserve locally known as Tom Moore’s Jungle.
6 Here Comes The Sun
Sunrises are sacred, wake-up early and watch the sun rise over one of our pink-sand beaches. Warwick Long Bay on the famed South Shore is a good place to start. You can walk the trails to Jobson’s Cove, Stonehole Bay and all the tiny bays and inlets in between. It’s a glorious photo opportunity you won’t want to miss.
7 Zip To The Zoo
Featuring a labyrinth of outdoor exhibits with animals from oceanic ecosystems around the world (think lemurs from Madagascar or Galapagos tortoises) the Bermuda Aquarium, Museum and Zoo is also where you can view hundreds of tropical fish and crustaceans.
8 Hang Ten
For graphic tee shirts, skateboard decks and handcrafted surfboards shaped and glassed on-site, head to Isolated Surfboards in the City of Hamilton, a working design studio that also features Bermuda’s only skateboard halfpipe.
9 Reel in the Big One
Book a half- or full-day deep sea fishing charter aboard Hakuna Matata, a 51-foot custom Carolina sportfish that runs trips near Bermuda’s deepest banks. For anglers searching for big game fish like tuna, mahi and wahoo, it’s the ultimate day on the water.
10 Picnic in the Park
Head to Miles Market for a picnic basket filled with the likes of curried chicken salad sandwiches and cookies. Next up is a picnic in one of our many parks. The lush Botanical Gardens stars 36 acres of trees and blossoms with plenty of places to lounge – and dine – on the grass. Or, travel to the serene Bermuda Arboretum offering 22 acres of gorgeous open space, with shady trails, ornamental bridges and peaceful meadows.
11 Cruise the Water
Rent a self-drive Boston Whaler from BDA Watersports for the ultimate day at sea. Boats include retractable Biminis, a cooler with ice and unlimited on-the-water adventure. Tip: Take yours to the wreck of the Vixen where you can feed schools of fish.
12 Paddle Out
Whether on a guided tour or on your own, find balance as you paddle out to quiet coves, shipwrecks and coral reefs. Rent a board from K.S. Watersports in Hamilton or St. George’s.
13 Explore The Deep
With more than 400 wrecks in its waters, Bermuda is the Shipwreck Capital of the Atlantic. Explore sunken luxury liners, old wooden schooners and an abundance of coral reefs teeming with colourful tropical fish.
14 Wander the Streets of St. George’s
Step back in time as you stroll the centuries-old brick streets of the Town of St. George, a UNESCO World Heritage site. Bermuda's former capital, the well-preserved historic town and nearby fortress make St. George's and the East End a haven for British colonial architecture, history and culture.
15 Run, Hike or Bike the Railway
Once the home of a working railway that ran across the island, The Railway Trail is now a blissful pedestrian and cycle path perfect for active exploration. Try the section in Smiths Parish, featuring a 740-feet-long overwater footbridge spanning across Bailey’s Bay.
16 Practice Your Putting
Featuring 18 miniature versions of the world’s most iconic holes—think the Road Hole from St. Andrews Old Course or Augusta National’s Golden Bell—Bermuda Fun Golf in the Royal Naval Dockyard is where you can practice your short game with an ocean view.
17 Walk the Ocean Floor
Hartley’s Helmet Diving leads underwater walks that take you eye to eye with fish, turtles, and more. Using a helmet with large glass windows and air hoses, divers can walk and breathe freely as they explore the colourful coral reefs.
18 Take the Plunge
Bermuda is home to some seriously exciting cliff-diving spots. The most popular and best for first timers is Admiralty House Park, which has deep water and tall cliffs.
19 Get Glassed
For unobstructed underwater views without getting wet take a glass bottom boat cruise, which departs from the Royal Naval Dockyard. From your seat you’ll spot sea turtles swimming over sea grass beds, healthy coral reef and tropical fish of all kinds.
20 Befriend Flipper
At Dolphin Quest in the Royal Naval Dockyard, hop in the water with a pod of dolphins inside the walls of Bermuda’s largest stone fort. Experiences range from 10-minute dockside interactions to fully immersed 30-minute swims next to these docile mammals.
21 Advantage You
Pack your racket and prepare to have a ball – tennis is great year-round in Bermuda.
