Things to do in Bermuda
Activities in Bermuda range widely from water and land sports to excursions throughout the island’s lush interior and shopping in the city of Hamilton. If you’re planning a day at the beach, why not try some water sports? Parasailing, waterskiing, and kayaking excursions are available year round, as are underwater activities like snorkeling and diving. There are plenty of shipwrecks for divers to explore, including Cristobal Colon, Bermuda’s biggest shipwreck. Once a Spanish cruise liner, the ship hit a coral reef and sunk in 1936.
Another underwater adventure that doesn’t require getting wet is traversing the caves. In Hamilton Parish, 120 feet under ground, are the Crystal Caves. Here, take in the breathtaking scenery of crystalized cave ceilings and a clear underground lake. Above ground is the Bermuda Railway Trail, a Bermuda activity that’s popular with both locals and visitors. Sure, the railway is gone but the route is now a picturesque walking, jogging, and cycling route. If you’re an animal lover, head over to Spicelands Equestrian Centre in Hamilton where you’ll get to ride horses on guided tours through the beautiful Bermudian countryside. Or, you can spend your days lounging on the beach or by the pool. The choice is yours.
