Explore Bermuda's Three Regions
A blend of cultures, unique neighbourhoods, and breathtaking natural wonders pack Bermuda's deceptively small 21 square miles with incredible things to see, do, and discover. See Gombey dancers swaying and jumping in time to the infectious beats of steel drums and shrieking whistles. Watch vibrant patterned kites bobbing in the breeze overhead. Get familiar with the island’s three delightfully different regions – West End, Central Bermuda, and East End – and enjoy a little taste of our local culture.
Bermuda's historic East End is a UNESCO World Heritage Site packed with must-try restaurants, gorgeous beaches, and notable forts.
Bermuda is a global financial hub of the world – and Hamilton is the centre of the action. Chic dining and shopping are punctuated with incredible water views.
Bermuda's West End houses the historic Royal Naval Dockyard, plus some of the island's must-try restaurants and picture-perfect South Shore beaches.
