Hit the Beach

Bermuda has nearly 25 miles of beach ranging from long sandy stretches to intimate coves and rocky shores. Most of the island’s best sand beaches can be found on the South Shore where the water tends to be rougher and conditions are often ideal for body surfing. North Shore beaches tend to be rockier but the water calmer.

Located on the south shore, Horseshoe Bay is truly spectacular with its wide beach and rocky coves. Elsewhere, Church Bay is perfect for snorkeling, while John Smith’s Bay is long, flat, and usually untouched by tourists.

Scuba Diving

For divers, Bermuda boasts some of the most spectacular scuba diving in the world with more than 350 shipwrecks and 230 miles of reefs to explore. Bermuda’s reefs are home to more than 10,000 species of marine life from the humble sea fan to migratory whales. Crystal clear waters mean visibility is often good up to 150 feet. If you are not a swimmer, you can still enjoy the underwater world by going helmet-diving and walking on the ocean floor

Spa Time

Bermuda, with its unhurried pace of life, is the perfect place to unwind after a wedding. Take advantage of one of the island’s growing number of first-class spas to really relax while on your honeymoon. Whether you go for an invigorating hour or a full, indulgent day, it is the way to relax, rejuvenate, and revitalize yourself. Sense, a Rosewood Spa, Willow Stream Spa, and the Spa at Elbow Beach are three of the top spas on the island.

Explore the Island via Moped

One of the best ways to see the island is to rent a moped during your stay. Buzzing around on your moped, you will uncover deserted beaches, cricket matches, and other island life. The island’s speed limit is 25 mph so you can enjoy the beautiful views without having to worry that they are passing by too fast.

Rent a Boat

You can rent your own Boston Whaler or sailboat and enjoy a picnic on a secluded island, go snorkeling and relax on a beautiful beach. Or take a kayak and explore the dozens of coves and bays around the island. The turquoise waters are so clear that you will be able to enjoy the spectacular marine life without even going under the surface.

Jet Ski Safari

If you are an adrenaline junkie couple, take a jet ski safari or a high-speed catamaran tour around the island. Why not try a water-ski, windsurf, kitesurfing, or parasailing adventure after the safari. Whatever your choice, there is no better way to enjoy Bermuda’s natural beauty than being in, out, or under the water.

Shopping

Bermuda is a shopper’s paradise, whether you are hunting for luxury merchandise at affordable prices or exploring local arts and crafts. You will be tempted by a wide range of international goods and famous brand names: French perfumes, English bone china, Cuban cigars, Swiss watches, silver, crystal and jewelry, Irish linen, Scottish tweeds, Italian silks, cashmere sweaters and many other surprising treats. Better yet, with no added sales tax you can buy many of these goods up to 40 percent lower than in stores in Europe or the United States.

Golf

The island is home to six world-class golf courses, many with pink sand traps and ocean views. While Bermuda’s courses are not the longest, most offer a unique challenge, accentuated always by the ocean breeze and a distracting but breathtaking view at every turn. The Mid Ocean Club in Tucker’s Point is arguably the most famous and picturesque of them all.
