Things to do in Bermuda

Bermuda may be small, but it still has plenty to offer in terms of things to see, do and experience. Whether you're learning about Bermuda's blend of culture, relaxing in a spa, searching for an adrenaline rush, shopping in the quirky boutiques in Hamilton or just kicking back with a Rum Swizzle in the sun - there is something to suit everyone. We have selected just a few of our favourites below.

  • Beaches

    Bermuda has no shortage of incredible beaches to be discovered, from long stretches of pink sand to tucked-away coves, off-the-beaten-path ponds and other hidden gems. Horseshoe Bay Beach is Bermuda's most famous - its easily accessible by public transport and visitors love stretching out on its light-pink sands or take a stroll along Warwick Long Bay - Bermuda's longest with rock formations dotting the water. If you prefer something a bit quieter, head to Jobson Cove, its secluded crystal clear waters are perfect for snorkelling, with colourful marine life easily visible in the calm, shallow water.

  • Snorkelling & Diving

    With deep and accessible waters, Bermuda's diving is world-class. Known as the 'Shipwreck capital of the world', the island is surrounded by more than 300 sunken vessels that are easily explored, with the best preserved wrecks around the east and north of Bermuda - although western end features older wrecks, some in water as shallow as 30 feet. If you prefer snorkelling, there is still plenty to see with a colourful show of sea life available right from the shore, such as snapper, angelfish, sea turtles and spotted eagle rays.

  • Natural Wonders

    Get outdoors to discover the incredible natural gems that Bermuda the paradise it is. Explore Bermuda's Crystal Caves, a network of caves and grotto's thought to be millions of years old, they house dramatic formations and a clear ocean-fed lake that is truly breath taking. Hire a bike and experience Bermuda's picturesque landscapes by biking along the historic Railway Trail National Park - the abandoned railbed winds through stunning rocky coastlines for an unparalleled way to experience the island's natural beauty and serenity.

  • Watersports

    Adrenaline seekers need look no further. Bermuda's turquoise waters host some of the most incredible watersports on offer with something to suit every ability and taste. Try flyboarding, where jets of water shoot you skyward, or kiteboarding, where you can go soaring over the water. Enjoy a gentler thrill as you take to the sky while strapped to a parasail, or paddle a glass-bottomed kayak over swaying sea plants. No matter what you choose, Bermuda’s gorgeous waters and sunny, mild weather ensure the perfect adventure.

  • Cuisine

    Bermudian diverse cuisine is born from an incredible mix of British, Caribbean, African, Native American and Portuguese influences and natural ingredients. On Sunday mornings, join the locals for a hearty, traditional codfish breakfast – boiled or steamed salt cod with boiled potatoes, onions, sliced bananas, a hard-boiled egg and, occasionally, avocado slices. It's topped with a tomato or butter onion sauce. If you're down by the beach, grab a no-frills, Bermudian staple, a Fish Sandwich - deep-fried fillets of fish with tartar sauce piled on raisin bread or whole-wheat toast. Go for “the works" and add on lettuce, tomato, grilled Bermuda onions, cheese, hot sauce and coleslaw. Relax and watch the sunset with a traditional Bermudan Dark n' Stormy or a Rum Swizzle for the perfect evening.
