Discover Bermuda's best excursions & activitiesWith over 138 islands and islets to explore, Bermuda stands as one of the Caribbean’s most vibrant and exciting destinations to visit. If that sounds daunting to you, don’t worry! Check out this list for what to see and do around Bermuda’s most relaxing resorts.
1. Crystal-clear waters and cavesEveryone knows about Bermuda’s beautiful beaches, but we bet you haven’t heard much about its caves! Spend an afternoon exploring the tranquillity of the Crystal and Fantasy Caves as you immerse yourself in its majestic underground pools, lakes, and rock formations. Once you’re done with the tour, visit the gift shop and take home some geodes and crystals of your own.
Afterwards, feel free to visit the nearby Walsingham Nature Reserve where you can bask in the glory of nature, or go swimming and snorkelling in the Causeway Cave’s grotto. Fun fact: Poet Tom Moore composed his most famous works here below a calabash tree!

2. Stick to the SeaTime spent in Bermuda will make you a regular fish out of water! Well, that is until you dive right back in. Whether you’re by the shoreline of Warwick Long Bay or soaking up the sun at John Smith’s Bay, get ready to dig your feet deep into the pink sand that makes Bermuda a beach vacation unlike any other.
It’s also the perfect destination for thrill-seekers looking to dive into a variety of water-related activities, like snorkelling in Tobacco Beach Bay, cliff jumping off Peel Rock at Horseshoe Bay Beach, and getting a rush of adrenaline aboard a jet ski tour that’ll lead you to some of the island’s hidden gems.
Needless to say, the turquoise waters are sure to deliver a dose of adventure your way.
3. Culture at a GlanceHere, you’ll find yourself among some of the world’s most diverse traditions, though the island is primarily shaped by its African heritage. Between its assortment of flavours, live music events, and local festivals, there’s no limit of things to explore.
Taking the African Diaspora Heritage Trail allows visitors to understand the history of Bermuda’s descendants, most of which can be traced back to the West Indies and West Africa. Various monuments and cultural heritage sites also allow visitors to learn about Bermuda pre-emancipation.

With its blend of British, African, Portuguese, Caribbean and Native American influences, food in Bermuda is just about as diverse as its people. That said, it should come as no surprise that seafood is a culinary specialty here, adding authenticity to that fully-fledged island feel.
Be sure to visit local hotspots like Wahoo’s Bistro & Patio in St. Georges’ or Barracuda Grill in Hamilton for an enhanced culinary experience during your stay. At Art Mel’s Spicy Dicy, discover delicious fish sandwiches. Plus, don’t miss out on signature cocktails like the Dark ‘n Stormy or Bermuda’s national drink, the Rum Swizzle.
5. Peace Out!Bermuda is known for its inviting and relaxing atmosphere, which attracts thousands of visitors year-round, but the best way to experience total serenity is by immersing yourself in the island’s culture of wellness and self-care practices.
Thanks to its range of wellness resorts and spas, it’s easy to let go of your worries as you’re being pampered while overlooking the beautiful seaside, or at a nearby underground pool. Self-care is taken very seriously here, which is why Bermuda’s wellness industry prioritises clients’ rejuvenation as its driving factor.
