Spend a day exploring Bermuda’s rich maritime history alongside shops, restaurants and museums at the Royal Naval Dockyard, one of the island’s major attractions and a lively port for cruise ships. A British Royal Navy stronghold for more than 150 years, the 19th-century fort that once kept guard over the West End houses the Bermuda National Museum. Nearby at the historic Clocktower Mall, you can shop local boutiques for jewellery, swimwear, handicrafts and more. Sample the famous cakes at Bermuda Rum Cake Company, and meet with local artists at the Bermuda Arts Centre. You’ll also find a seemingly endless list of activities, from bike rentals and snorkelling cruises to deep-water dolphin encounters.
