Holidays to Bermuda
This quintessential island is a nature lover’s paradise and a sub-tropical gem, lapped by the Sargasso Sea. The string of 181 islands and islets warmed by the temperate Gulf Stream make Bermuda holidays among the most popular choice for divers and nature lovers.
Being the oldest British colony, this tiny treasure trove is packed with history and natural beauty that never fails to impress visitors looking for walking holidays to Bermuda. Famed for its stunning waters in various hues of blue and green, incredible pink sands and coral reefs home to hundreds of colourful fish, Bermuda is a heavenly destination.
Along the coastlines you’ll find rows of pastel-coloured houses and elegant mansions strewn in bougainvillea, and the multi-cultural influences can be discovered at the local museums and art galleries.
Our self-guided walking holidays to Bermuda let you explore at your own pace, uncovering the local nature and wildlife along coastal and woodland trails. Go in search of colourful flowers and birds and explore coral reefs where you can see rainbow-coloured fish and perhaps spot a humpback whale in the distance.
Bermuda holidays will also appeal to history lovers and at the UNESCO World Heritage Site of St George you’ll learn about the journey of George Somers who first arrived here in 1609. There are also lots of ancient forts to explore here as well as a Corsican tower. Alternatively, head to Somerset to see the smallest drawbridge in the world and enjoy immense views of Hamilton from the C19 Fort Scaur.
St David’s Island: One of the largest islands you can explore on holidays to Bermuda is St David’s Island found within St George’s parish. Along its shore you’ll find the beautiful Clearwater Beach and Turtle Bay where you can enjoy wonderful views or take a dip in the water. A 55-foot lighthouse made of Bermuda stone dates to 1879 and has safely guided sailors for over a century. To learn more about the history of St David’s, visit the Carter House Museum where you’ll find displays from the 17th-century and a replica of a 1612 building with a palm-thatched roof.
Cooper’s Island: Joining St David’s in St George’s parish, Cooper’s Island is best known for its nature reserve. The woodland reserve is a peaceful sanctuary and home to pristine beaches and walking trails where you can spot some of the local wildlife. Its pond and salt marsh are where various species of seabirds such as herons and kingfishers hang out and you might even see a giant land crab. If you want to look for whales and other species of birds, head to the Wildlife Observation Tower on the far end of the peninsula.
Bermuda Island: This is the main island of Bermuda and is home to a unique mix of cultures, natural wonders and, of course, sun-drenched beaches. The vibrant capital of Hamilton is a cultural hub and a must-visit destination on Bermuda holidays. Walk down Front Street, the life and soul of the city which runs along the harbour. Here colourful colonial buildings mingle with glitzy stores and designer boutiques and it’s a great place to grab a coffee and watch the world go by. One of the best places to go for views is at the tower of the Cathedral of the Most Holy Trinity which looks out over the city.
Ireland Island: Making up a third of Sandys Parish, Ireland Island sits at the north-western point of Bermuda. Beyond its powdery sands and stunning coastal views, you can delve into the naval history of the island at the Royal Naval Dockyard. Alternatively, visit the National Museum of Bermuda to learn more about the local wildlife.
St George’s Island: Our self-guided Bermuda trips are designed for you to explore some of the most beautiful islands at your own pace. St George’s was formerly the capital of Bermuda and is named after St George, the patron saint of England. The island is drenched in history and has been listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The streets are lined with colourful houses, and you’ll find lots of interesting attractions around every corner. Discover historical buildings displaying traditional Bermudian architecture, stroll through the pretty parks or visit some of the old forts that date back to the British era. Along the coast, you’ll find the famous Corsican Tower and C17 forts at Ferry Reach.
