Destination guide

Kick back and relax in picturesque Bermuda

From pink-sand beaches and colorful marine life to family-friendly attractions and shopping centers, Bermuda's friendly island vibes in the North Atlantic Ocean welcome travelers to kick back under the golden sun. The archipelago is a British territory, and the 2 largest towns here have nods to colonial times in their historic buildings and forts. Once you've found your ideal Bermuda vacation rental, whether in the capital, Hamilton, or oceanside with incredible sunset views, it's off for rounds of golf at scenic courses, museum-hopping to learn about the heritage and relaxing beach days on the sands, with the sound of sea breezes for company.

Things to do

Waterfront fun on the docks of Bermuda

On the far-western tip of Bermuda, where the islands hook around the waters of the Great Sound, the Royal Navy Dockyard offers a wealth of historic attractions and family-friendly amusements. The National Museum of Bermuda here has shipwreck artifacts, heritage exhibits and play areas for kids on the grounds of an old fort. You'll also find spots around the dockyard to swim with dolphins, play a round of miniature golf by the ocean, grab a bite to eat and shop for souvenirs at craft markets. There's a ferry dock, too, with routes to St. George's and Hamilton, which means getting around between attractions is easy.


On the water and beneath the waves in Bermuda

With so many islets, reefs and shipwrecks to discover around Bermuda, a snorkeling tour into the blue North Atlantic waters is a must. Nothing beats the experience of skimming across the waves on a glass-bottomed boat in search of marine life swimming below. Leaping into the water with a mask and fins, you'll find a world of vibrant sea creatures and coral waiting to be discovered. For family days spent on the beach, you'll want to head to spots like Horseshoe Bay and Elbow Beach, where the clear waters welcome refreshing swims and the soft sands are perfect for picnics and castle-building contests.


Warm island summers on the shores of Bermuda

Nothing beats spending warm, sunny days on the beaches of Bermuda, enjoying the unique pink sands of the island and heading out for swims in the clear, refreshing waters. Temperatures usually heat up enough to start enjoying the beaches by spring, with summer bringing peak crowds to the archipelago as afternoons hit the 80s. If you plan to visit during the busier summer months, be sure to book your Bermuda vacation rental early to secure your ideal dates. The North Atlantic island enjoys mild weather even in winter, so off-season visits here are pleasant for walking around the small towns and checking out all the historic sites.

Natural features

Get back to nature in beautiful Bermuda

Several parks scattered around Bermuda offer glimpses of the archipelago's stunning flora and fauna. Cooper's Island Nature Reserve has an observation tower that offers 360-degree views over the North Atlantic, where you might spot bottlenose dolphins, large green turtles and the humpback whales that migrate through during spring. On the main island, Spittal Pond Nature Reserve is a great spot for birding, with a pond and 64 acres of waterfront land to explore on hiking trails. No matter which part of the archipelago you choose for your Bermuda vacation rental, you're sure to encounter wildlife, sea creatures and stunning natural features all over the islands and in the waters beyond.
