It’s breathtakingly beautiful beaches draw people to Bermuda’s shores time and time again. To discover some of Bermuda’s best beaches, head to South Shore Park.

The trail stretches from Warwick Long Bay, the island’s longest beach, to Horseshoe Bay Beach, which is world-famous for its stunning pink sandy beach. One thing’s for sure in Bermuda, that no matter where you are on the island, the nearest beach is sure to be a slice of paradise.
Get active in Bermuda
A Bermuda holiday is also an ideal choice if you enjoy mixing relaxation with activity. With surfing, kitesurfing, windsurfing, sailing, kayaking, paddleboarding and much more on offer, Bermuda is an ideal holiday for watersports fans. Hikers and cyclists will love exploring The Railway Trail, which is 18 miles of spectacular views and natural wonders. While divers will delight in discovering the 300 sunken vessels, which span across three centuries. Known as the shipwreck capital of the world, the extensive dive scene is a nod to the Bermuda Triangle and the many ships that were lost at sea here.
As one of Britain’s oldest colonies, this fish-hook shaped isle in the North Atlantic has unmissable natural wonders to explore on your Bermuda holiday. Be sure to head to the Crystal and Fantasy Caves in Hamilton Parish. The huge caverns contain extraordinary chalk white crystal formations and transparent mirror-like aqua blue underground lakes. As a national treasure, its magnificence and magic is guaranteed to take your breath away.

Bermuda’s Crystal Caves
Escape from the sun and head deep into the Crystal Caves. Walk across the bridge suspended over the Crystal Cave, marvelling at the clear water and formations beneath. The Fantasy Cave can also be explored, offering another view of mineral deposits formed over 30 million years.
"If you holiday in Bermuda in March and April, you may spot humpback whales at the West Whale Bay Beach. Getting a glimpse of the 40-ton creatures as they migrate north to their summer feeding ground in Canada, Greenland and Iceland is an unforgettable experience."
"For a spectacular view, head to Gibbs Hill Lighthouse. Climb the stairs in the 173-year-old (built in 1846) cast iron lighthouse to take in the panoramic vistas at the top."
Events & Festivals
There’s a huge selection of fun events throughout the year and you can plan your Bermuda holiday to ensure you experience them. Here are a few of our favourites
Celebrate Bermuda’s heritage by planning your holiday to Bermuda in May. This annual national holiday kicks off the summer season in style. Watch the parade, enjoy the live music and dancing and taste some delicious local dishes from the different food stalls.
Taking place every Wednesday from late May to September, this street festival is not to be missed. Held on Front Street after sunset, the street comes alive with sparkling lights and music. Locals wear colourful attire and there are many stalls offering lots of local food, art and crafts. The Gombey dancers, an iconic symbol of Bermuda, are a must-see highlight.
Bermuda Heroes Weekend
Taking place in June, this is one of the island’s biggest celebrations. It’s a carnival-style party where you can taste local delicacies and dance to Soca music. You’ll discover the tradition of Bermudians honouring certain islanders for their courage or outstanding achievement.
It is said that the flavours of Bermuda are as diverse as it’s cultural history - adopting techniques and ingredients from the Caribbean, British, West African, Native American and Portuguese. Add to this, it’s access to fresh fish, fruit and vegetables, makes Bermudian food a real treat for your taste buds. Here are our favourite must-try island specialities:
The Codfish Breakfast
Traditionally eaten on Sunday morning for breakfast, this hearty dish is a mix of salt cod, boiled potatoes, onions, sliced banana, a hard-boiled egg and avocado. The unusual ingredients make it a truly unique taste and a chance to sample authentic Bermudian flavours.
