With two days to spend in Bermuda, you’ll be able to explore the history, culture, and legends of this diverse British island territory, with plenty of time to soak up its natural beauty, both on land and on the water. Read on for tips on how to make the most of your 48 hours in Bermuda.
Day 1: Bermuda Icons
Morning: Start your day with an interactive history lesson as you visit some of the island’s historic attractions. Explore St. George—one of the New World’s earliest English urban settlements and a UNESCO World Heritage Site—or zip around the Royal Naval Dockyard on a Segway as you learn more about the imperial power of the British Navy.
Afternoon: The reefs ringing Bermuda have caused numerous shipwrecks over the centuries; they also make this one of the best spots in the world for scuba diving. Beginners can try diving for the first time with a lesson, while certified divers can explore two of the island’s top dive sites, keeping an eye out for seahorses, barracuda, and tuna.
Night: As the sun begins to set, get ready to experience one of the island’s most notorious legends, the Bermuda Triangle. Sip a rum swizzle as you take a nighttime cruise into the mysterious section of ocean aboard a glass-bottom boat equipped with floodlights to illuminate the sea below.
Day 2: Natural Beauty
Morning: Bermuda is small enough to explore end to end by bicycle, and one of the best places to do so is along the scenic Bermuda Railway Trail. Peddle on your own or join a guide as you get off the beaten path to find some of the island’s lesser-known sights and panoramic seascapes.
Afternoon: After your morning cycle, enjoy a relaxing afternoon on one of Bermuda’s most recognizable beaches, pink-sand Horseshoe Bay. Book a tour for hassle-free transportation to the beach, so you can focus your energies on digging your toes into the pink coral sand, swimming or snorkeling in the calm water, or grabbing a bite at a beachside restaurant.
Night: This evening, give a toast to two days well spent during a sunset cruise along Bermuda’s shores. Board a catamaran and set sail, tropical cocktails in hand, for a relaxing excursion that will have you back on land in time for a farewell dinner.
