Things to Do In Bermuda
Friday Mar 25th, 2022
The piece of paradise known as Bermuda is a British island territory (it's actually Britain's oldest colony) situated somewhere in the North Atlantic Ocean. Known for its pink-sand beaches (Elbow Beach and Horseshoe Bay), it is such a great place to explore that we thought we'd share some great things to do there (just in case you are looking for a great place to go on a vacation this summer!).
So, without taking too much of your time, let's dive in!
Explore Some Great Architecture
Did you know that Bermuda is home to a UNESCO World Heritage Site? Well, it is. And the place in question is called the Town of St.George (it was founded in 1612!), which is home to a large number of pixel-worthy British colonial architecture.
But St.George is more than just its architecture. It also has some great labyrinth cobblestone alleyways that lead to the oldest church in the Western Hemisphere: St. Peter’s Church. Other places to explore include King's Square, the Unfinished Church and Fort St. Catherine, a mighty stone fortress on Bermuda's far east end. Don’t forget to take your camera along with you because you will love the sights!
Go On A Boat Cruise
Bermuda is an archipelago of over 180 islets and cays. If you take to the water, we recommend that you rent a self-drive motorboat and go on a personalized adventure. If you need some guidance, then you can charter a catamaran and have the captain and crew guide you through some of the wonders of Bermuda.
There are loads of secluded bays and hidden beaches to explore. One notable place to explore is King’s Island in Mangrove Bay. Your adventure will be a lot more interesting if you have some bread to feed the fish that you'd find around the wreck of a gunboat known as the HMS Vixen.
Check out the Shipwrecks
We don't know all the fables you heard about Bermuda, but one thing is true. It has the largest shipwrecks(over 400) on the Atlantic Ocean. So if you are good at swimming, you might want to check them out. You'd be sure to find lots of shipwrecks, coral reefs, and of course, schools of tropical fish.
Explore The Island’s History
Bermuda Island has a ton of history. And you can find all the history you can handle at The National Museum of Bermuda, where you will find a ton of exhibits from its rich maritime and military history. The huge museum is housed within the walls of the Royal Naval Dockyard, and there is so much to see;19th- and 20th-century maritime paintings, slave trade exhibits, and a 1,000-square-foot mural that depict 500 years of Bermuda history.
Visit The Zoo
Bermuda is also home to a great zoo that doubles as a museum. At the zoo, you will see many animals that are unique to the island, and you are sure to have a great time there. Also, be sure to check out the North Rock Exhibit, which is essentially a 140,000-gallon tank that looks like a living coral reef with pelagic fish species of all kinds.
Bermuda has a fantastic restaurant scene with world-class chefs, home to various cultural cuisine. From the Eastern Parishes all the way to the Western, you can find some local eats, and cultural dishes. Bermuda’s restaurant scene caters to lovers of local cuisine, Italian, Indian, Chinese, Thai, Japanese, American and Canadian. Grab your guy or gal, or a few pals and sample the wonderful eats this Country has to offer.
Bermuda has great pink beaches that make a great background for your photos. BUT THAT’S NOT ALL there is to explore. See this list of things to do in Bermuda as the tip of the iceberg. The sights and sounds of Bermuda are better experienced than read about!
