WHAT TO DO:

Links aficionados rejoice! Bermuda is home to no less than eight of the classiest, more demanding professional golf courses in the world. Each has its own particular feature to outdo the others. For the Port Royal for instance, it is a myriad of activities offered on the premises, while The Tucker's Point is eloquently perched atop some rocky formations, along the coast line. They all offer a different challenge that is yours to discover. Each will find a level of difficulty to suit their style. Many other sports are offered directly at major hotels. Most have tennis courts; offer horseback riding, volleyball or hiking. Watersports are nothing to shy away from, as many shipwrecks await scuba diving enthusiasts at one of many interesting dive sites around the island. Now there's enough there to fuel the old Bermuda triangle legend! Nonetheless, if your thing is jet-skiing, sailing, windsurfing or breaking the waves aboard a sea kayak, this place will quite surely keep you busy!

WHAT TO SEE:

More than just a pretty place, Bermuda is also home to a vibrant cultural scene. Museums, theaters, cinemas, cabarets, bars and art galleries abound in this creative, lively island. A visit to old fort Saint-Catherine is probably the most popular among a wide array of activities. The panoramic view is breathtaking and the site has remained in excellent condition. The Aquarium is another must-see attraction, where various scenes from the ocean world have been carefully recreated, much to the amazement of the entire family. Enjoy long, lazy walks down the streets of Hamilton where you will appreciate the colourful and crafty elegance of local architecture and monuments. After visiting Bermuda, you will find that once is never enough!

THINGS TO DO:

Bermuda is typically enjoyed by a more mature, discerning clientele who appreciate the unique charm and sophistication of the island and long days on the golf course. Nonetheless, families find plenty to do and will enjoy the many quiet and picture-perfect beaches. Once the sun sets on Bermuda, be advised that the club scene is somewhat more discreet than elsewhere. Here, live performances, theater and your friendly neighbourhood English pub is one fine way to spend the evening. , This doesn't mean Bermudians don't know how to party! In fact, the local music scene is vibrant and strong with clubs offering an eclectic blend of sounds borrowed from Jamaica, Trinidad and Puerto Rico. There is also approximately 150 restaurants on the island, catering to all budgets and tastes, from the simple corner dinner to more sophisticated, five-star culinary experiences .It is generally safe to drink tap water. One cannot rent a car in Bermuda but many choose to move around the island on scooters or hop on a taxi.
