The island of Bermuda, far from any neighbors in the North Atlantic, stands alone geographically, historically, and culturally. Its tourist attractions – which include pink sand beaches, military forts, and an azure lake hidden deep underground – are also unique. With Bermuda vacation packages you can unlock these island treasures for yourself.
Out and About in Bermuda
Bermuda offers typical tropical island activities, including sunbathing on the beach, snorkeling, and diving, but here the beaches are a stunning pastel pink, and dive sites include shipwrecks as well as coral reefs. You can also see magnificent marine life on a whale watching excursion. Spring is prime time for spotting humpbacks. If you're a history buff, find hotels in Bermuda near St. George, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Settled in 1612, this is the place where Bermuda began, and the earliest English town in all of the New World. Its whitewashed limestone homes lining narrow, winding lanes represent a style of architecture unique to Bermuda. The island's Royal Naval Dockyard – the British Navy's base during the War of 1812 – is another historic site. Visit the Crystal Caves, a natural wonder and top attraction. Gaze in awe at the stalagmites and stalactites above and around you, and crystal-clear pools of water below.
Eating and Drinking
Two famous cocktails – the Dark 'n' Stormy and the Rum Swizzle – originated in Bermuda. Don't leave the island without sampling both. Concoctions featuring local rum, ginger beer, and fresh fruit dominate the cocktail menus of the bars inside Bermuda hotels, restaurants, and beach cafes alike. The island's cultural influences are evident in its diverse restaurant scene. The British influence is seen in Bermuda's smattering of pubs. One local favorite you'll see again and again on menus is the fish sandwich, assembled from sliced bread, tartar sauce, coleslaw, and crispy, salty, deep-fried fish. Also be sure to try a piece of Horton's Bermuda Rum Cake, another beloved island treat.
