Fun Bermuda Attractions & Sightseeing Tours
The 21-square mile British archipelago (located in the North Atlantic Ocean) has gorgeous beaches with soft pink sand and clear, aqua water, beautiful coral reefs, lush landscaping, amazing weather, historical attractions, fine dining, and legendary championship golf courses. It’s also one of the world’s finest scuba-diving destinations.
Many of Bermuda’s historical attractions are located in the quaint town of St. George’s. Founded in 1612, it’s the oldest and most historic settlement on the island. Visit the Old State House, constructed in 1620 – it’s the oldest house in Bermuda. Other attractions include: Bermuda National Gallery featuring historic European art; Somers Garden, a stone column and garden commemorating Sir George Somers, founder of Bermuda; and St. Peter’s Church, the oldest Anglican Church in the Western Hemisphere. Take a selfie at the Stocks, Pillory, Whipping Post and Ducking Stool – replicas of those used to punish criminals over 400 years ago.
- Horseshoe Beach – one of Bermuda’s most popular beaches. It’s white-pink sand is cool to the touch, even in the hottest temperatures. If the tide is out, walk down to the far end of Horseshoe Bay Beach and walk around the corner to beautiful rock formations, secluded coves and breathtaking views.
- Warwick Long Bay – covers a half-mile stretch of sand – the longest on the island. It’s a beach-lover’s delight, especially if you crave solitude.
- Jobson’s Cove – a gorgeous tucked-away horseshoe-shaped bay – is located adjacent to Warwick Long Bay. It’s only 30 feet wide and its shallow waters make it an excellent location for swimming and snorkeling.
- Elbow Beach – another island favorite.
- Tobacco Bay Beach – a popular public beach on the other side of the island, close to the historic town of St. George’s.
