If you’re a traveller who enjoys glorious weather mixed with thrilling adventure, then Bermuda is the place for you. Stunning beaches, luxuriously blue water, walking trails, wildlife reserves, exciting activities – it seems that Bermuda has it all. Oh, and to top it all off, the island doesn’t have a particular rainy season either, so you can enjoy idyllic temperatures throughout the year, making it the ultimate paradise. So, let’s take a look at just some of the incredible activities in Bermuda that are on offer…
What better way to explore Bermuda’s lusciously warm and blue waters, than by paddle? Meander over gentle waves, weave in and out of intriguing coves and gaze at the stunning cliffs and wildlife all around you. Bermuda is famous for its glass like water, so a great way to peer down to the fascinating depths below while you paddle, is to hire a glass bottom kayak. There are plenty of hire companies dotted around the island that offer kayaks for hire, or if you’d prefer, you can join a guided tour.
Bermuda may only be a small island, but its not short on spectacular cliff walks, hiking trails and walking routes. There are many nature reserves, areas rich in plant life, striking viewpoints and hidden beaches to discover, all of which are best explored by foot. Just don’t forget to bring your camera, you’ll be blown away by how picturesque the island looks from different angles and perspectives – you’ll want to save those images for a lifetime!
If you’re really fascinated in what lies beneath, then you need to head under the surface of Bermuda. The island and its surrounding waters are said to be home to over 300 shipwrecks, all varying in size, history and condition. Bermuda is also said to have some of the clearest waters in the world, and in the summer, visibility can reach to depths of around 70 metres. So, with water that crystal clear, you’ll be able to explore the fascinating sights in all their splendour.
Another delight that’s hidden beneath the surface of Bermuda is its network of over 150 grottos and caves. The incredible formations and internal structures of these caves are simply jaw-dropping, it’s almost as if you’ve stepped onto another planet. Exploring these caves is an adventure on its own and can see you walking, climbing, diving underwater or even crawling through a maze of tight passageways.
Bermuda is a paradise for all you budding cyclists out there. The roads tend to be pretty quiet throughout the island and there are also many cycling/walking trails which are not accessible by car or motorbike. The Railway Trail is one of the most spectacular cycling routes, and being a moderate 18-mile route, can easily be done in a day or two, depending how leisurely your pace is. The trail used to be Bermuda’s railway line until it was sadly closed in 1948, however, it’s been transformed into a divine cycling and walking route for locals and tourists to enjoy.
