Best Things To Do in Bermuda

Bermuda is a prime place to lounge in the pink sand or swim in the blue water, but you should also hit the links, the spas and the duty-free shops. The greens at Port Royal Golf Club are challenging, as are the holes at Turtle Hill Golf Club and Tucker's Point Golf Club. The Royal Naval Dockyard is recommended for Bermudian crafts and name-brand items. If you're visiting in the chilly winter, you must take a stroll through Historic St. George.

Southampton parish's Horseshoe Bay is the most photographed (and famous) beach in Bermuda, making it hard to score a prime spot on the sand, especially if a cruise ship is in town. The blushing sand at Horseshoe is gorgeous at any time of year, but the water is chilly from September to May, so unless you enjoy a frigid dip, you should steer clear of the tide after Labor Day. But even in the colder months, Horseshoe is a great spot for a romantic stroll along the sand. And if you're in town during Easter you have to make a special trip to Horseshoe to see the beautiful handmade Bermudian kites flying high on Good Friday.

Did you know that St. George was one of the first English towns established in North America? And like its contemporaries (Jamestown, Virginia, and St. John's, Newfoundland), St. George holds firm to its colonial roots. When you visit you'll pass the same Town Hall and Old Rectory that the settlers used hundreds of years ago. During the peak summer season, period actors roam the winding streets, simulating the old days – there are even town criers and townspeople sentenced to the stocks. In 2000, the historic town of St. George became a UNESCO World Heritage site.

In 1874, settlers in St. George began building an opulent replacement to St. Peter's Church, an Anglican place of worship that was established after the 1612 English settlement. But poor planning led to insufficient funding and creative squabbles, which led to eventual abandonment following a debilitating storm that left a crumbling ruin and eyesore. Cut to present day, and the structure has been fortified to withstand visitors, though it's still unfinished with only the sky for a ceiling. Currently, more repairs are being done, so visitors can only check out the grounds, but you can still enjoy spectacular views through the arches.

The Royal Naval Dockyard is a picturesque way to break from the pink sand beaches. And if you're visiting during Bermuda's chillier seasons, it could end up being the highlight of your trip. The site was once the principal base of the Royal Navy in the Western Atlantic Ocean, but now it's a tourist-slanted marina and cruise ship dock that's stocked with waterfront restaurants, art galleries, quaint (though overpriced) shops and a few pubs. You'll also find the National Museum of Bermuda and the kid-friendly Dolphin Quest water program here at the Keep fortress.

If you're looking for sand at its pinkest, stop by Elbow Beach. Just remember that a good chunk of those pink pebbles are privately owned by the Elbow Beach Bermuda hotel and the Coral Beach Club. Honeymooners should investigate a different spot because Elbow has a reputation as the most family-friendly shore on the island. This is partially due to the reefs that keep the waters safe and mild and also the food wagon that patrols the perimeter of Elbow Beach on a regular basis.

If you like star sightings while you putt, then you should stomach the exorbitant green fees and book a tee time at the prestigious Port Royal Golf Course. This is the golf course of choice for vacationing celebrities and PGA greats. Originally designed by famed course architect Robert Trent Jones in 1970, the Port Royal Golf Course of Southampton Parish was refurbished in 2009 to the tune of $14.5 million. It now features resewn fairways and tee boxes, a new irrigation system and a grandiose clubhouse. At 6,842 yards, it is Bermuda's longest greenway.

In 1907, the Crystal & Fantasy caves were accidentally discovered by two young boys. The story goes that Carl Gibbons and Edgar Hollis were playing an intense game of cricket when the ball was hit into a hole. One of the boys climbed down the hole to retrieve the ball, and alas, the caves were discovered. The caves covered in crystal formations surround a 55-foot deep lake. Today, bridges run throughout the caves allowing visitors to descend deep into the darkness and witness the magnificent beauty of the crystals while on a guided tour.

This Bermuda beach, the longest on the island, snakes along a half-mile of the island's southern coast. Vacationers report a pleasant breeze at Warwick Long Bay during the summer months. But take note: Those winds feel like a chilly blast come wintertime. Warwick Long is great for families because it has an inner reef that safeguards against strong waves. Plus it's never as crowded as Horseshoe Bay.

There are few public beaches on Bermuda that have concessions stands or restaurants with a liquor license. One that does – Tobacco Bay – is just a short distance from the cruise ship dock and the village of St. George. In addition to boozing, you can rent snorkeling equipment at Tobacco Bay (though we'd recommend you drink after you snorkel).
