3 Days in Bermuda: Suggested Itineraries
By Viator, February 2015
Day 1: Colonial Heritage
Get the low-down on Bermuda’s British heritage on a visit to the Royal Naval Dockyard on Ireland Island. Explore the old limestone docks, then visit the maritime museum housed in the former Keep. Then jump on a ferry to sail to the old Town of St. George, to wander cobbled laneways seemingly unchanged by time. Whitewashed Georgian buildings surround the harbor in this World Heritage-listed town, with its museums, period houses and churches.
Day 2: Marine Creatures
Bermuda’s population of fish and turtles are on display at the Aquarium, where seal-feeding time is everyone’s favorite hour of the day. Dolphins perform acrobatic stunts at Dolphin Quest, in the Keep at the Royal Naval Dockyard. At this interactive animal park you can take an underwater swim with the lovable aquatic mammals, shake flippers or kiss noses. To see dolphins swimming free, get a bird’s-eye view from Gibb’s Hill Lighthouse – between February and May, you might spot a humpback whale swimming past with the frolicking dolphins.
Day 3: Bermuda Beaches
On day three, take your pick from Bermuda’s collection of lovely pink-sand, turquoise water beaches, or beach hop your way along the coast. Start with a snorkel among the corals at Tobacco Bay, near the Town of St. George’s and the cruise port. Choose Elbow Beach for bathing close to the city of Hamilton, or Astwood Cove for a secluded stretch of sand protected by cliffs. On the island’s south coast, Horseshoe Bay stands out from them all, with its gorgeous curve of pink sand and excellent beach facilities.
