Things to See and Do in Beautiful Bermuda – If you’re looking for that classic tropical appeal – soft, pink sands, warm, aquamarine waters, and homes covered in bougainvilleas – Bermuda is that place.
Think idyllic beaches, world-class snorkeling and diving, laidback fishing holes. But Bermuda is about much more than just the island life. There are several historic forts, one of which dates to 1609 when the British Army used the island as a strategic point. There are also several museums and art galleries. And that’s not even the tip of the iceberg.
Just off the United States east coast lies a strip of nearly 140 islands arranged in the shape of a hook. Bermuda is in this hook, and at only 20 miles long and a mere two miles across, it’s hard to believe that this island is so culturally rich and diverse. One of the quickest ways to spot this diversity is in the local cuisine. Local dishes, such as shark hash or mussel pie has been fused with such flavors as Portuguese and British.
Of course, a stretch of beach and some suntan oil is in order for any holiday on Bermuda. It’s not difficult to find a beach – what’s difficult is to list a favorite. A lot of visitors and locals agree Horseshoe Bay is as close to perfect as it gets, but Elbow Beach has a stake in that claim, too.
But if you’re headed to Bermuda to learn its fascinating history, its historic forts should be the first spots on your itinerary, such as Fort St. Catherine. The Royal Navy Dockyard and Bermuda’s National Museum are also not-to-miss.
For accommodations, you won’t be surprised that most of the best places to stay are on or within view of the water. Cambridge’s Beach Resort and Spa offers various types of accommodations. This exclusive resort has everything from guest suites to your own private cottage or villa. Certain accommodations come with your own private pool, as well, but because the resort has four guest-only beaches, you might not ever dip a toe in your pool.
