The Best Things to Do, Attractions & Activities in Bermuda

There is so much to see and do beyond the pink-sand beaches and pristine waters in Bermuda. It’s the dream destination for visitors looking for a great blend of history, culture, and beautiful scenery. Dive in to discover the best things to do, attractions and activities in Bermuda.

Our favourite activities to recommend on any holiday to Bermuda are:

  • Snorkelling and Diving: pick up your snorkel and hop in from the shore to explore the underwater world, or venture further and dive one of the many shipwrecks and colourful reefs Bermuda has to offer – get ready to see snapper fish, sea turtles and spotted eagle rays along the way. Church Bay, Elbow Beach, and Tobacco Bay Beach each offer a kaleidoscope of vibrant marine life and stunning coral reefs. Beyond the crescent shores are more than 300 sunken vessels all waiting to be explored by divers.
  • Golfing: for a little island, Bermuda hits a big ball in the golfing world. From challenging championship courses to family resort courses, there is someone for everyone – a haunt for professional golfers who hone their skills on the immaculate fairways of The Mid Ocean Club and Port Royal in the winter months to the fun and friendly Five Forts whose greens and tees are often populate by parents and kids learning the game. So many run sea and beachside, and the views make golf all but impossible. Could it be the welcome and the genuinely sincere, pleasure everyone seems to have in seeing you, or perhaps it is the thought of finding your newly purchased Pro V’s golf balls on the beautiful beach after your round!

  • Explore the Centuries-Old Town of St. George’s: once Bermuda’s capital and now a UNESCO World Heritage Site, St. George’s is well worth a visit. Step back in time and join a walking tour and bask in the charm and beauty of this 400-year-old cobblestoned town. Well-preserved historic buildings, quaint streets and a number of forts all wait to be explored. Or you can simply stop through for a spot of lunch and some shopping.
  • The Natural Wonders of the Crystal Caves: exploring these dramatic cave systems is an experience not to be missed! Climbing stalagmites, hanging stalactites and sapphire underground pools are what you’ll find in these caves formed over millions of years ago. Visitors can take guided tours into the caves where you’ll wander through narrow pathways and over bridges, offering a glance into the island’s geological past.

  • Bermuda Boating: a yachties paradise, the summer months are filled with the sounds of halyards clicking against spas and masts, and the squeak of boat shoes on polished teak decks. Skies are filled with acres of crisp white canvas floating on top of the Turquoise waters exploring the coves and inlets of Bermuda. Ashore, bars and restaurants are full of jolly sailors and the ubiquitous brightly coloured Bermuda shorts bring even more colour to the pretty painted house of the foreshore.

The Best Beaches in Bermuda

The soft pink sand beaches of Bermuda rival any tropical paradise. Especially with the azure waters lapping the crescent shorelines. We’ve pinpointed some top picks for you to explore:

  • Horseshoe Bay Beach: probably the most famous beach in Bermuda, Horseshoe Bay Beach is strikingly beautiful with majestic rock formations as the backdrop to the dazzling sands and shimmering waters. A great spot for swimmers and sunbathers! And the Beach House nearby provides changing facilities, rentals, and snacks.
  • Clearwater Beach: the calm and shallow shores at Clearwater Beach make it an ideal choice for families with young children. And if the kids get itchy feet, the park also offers a playground and nature trails too.
  • Church Bay: for a great snorkelling spot, Church Bay is teeming with a lovely variety of marine life – the reef is nice and close to the shore as well. And a characterful beach hut is available to buy snacks and rent snorkelling gear.
  • Tobacco Bay Beach: if you’re looking for seclusion and romance, Tobacco Bay Beach is the one for you. And the unique limestone formations off the shore are home to stunning sergeant majors and parrotfish. The beach was named after those from the shipwrecked Sea Venture who found tobacco growing here, originally planted by the Spanish.
