Top 5 Islands to Explore on Bermuda Holidays
St David’s Island: One of the largest islands you can explore on holidays to Bermuda is St David’s Island found within St George’s parish. Along its shore you’ll find the beautiful Clearwater Beach and Turtle Bay where you can enjoy wonderful views or take a dip in the water. A 55-foot lighthouse made of Bermuda stone dates to 1879 and has safely guided sailors for over a century. To learn more about the history of St David’s, visit the Carter House Museum where you’ll find displays from the 17th-century and a replica of a 1612 building with a palm-thatched roof.
Cooper’s Island: Joining St David’s in St George’s parish, Cooper’s Island is best known for its nature reserve. The woodland reserve is a peaceful sanctuary and home to pristine beaches and walking trails where you can spot some of the local wildlife. Its pond and salt marsh are where various species of seabirds such as herons and kingfishers hang out and you might even see a giant land crab. If you want to look for whales and other species of birds, head to the Wildlife Observation Tower on the far end of the peninsula.
Bermuda Island: This is the main island of Bermuda and is home to a unique mix of cultures, natural wonders and, of course, sun-drenched beaches. The vibrant capital of Hamilton is a cultural hub and a must-visit destination on Bermuda holidays. Walk down Front Street, the life and soul of the city which runs along the harbour. Here colourful colonial buildings mingle with glitzy stores and designer boutiques and it’s a great place to grab a coffee and watch the world go by. One of the best places to go for views is at the tower of the Cathedral of the Most Holy Trinity which looks out over the city.
Ireland Island: Making up a third of Sandys Parish, Ireland Island sits at the north-western point of Bermuda. Beyond its powdery sands and stunning coastal views, you can delve into the naval history of the island at the Royal Naval Dockyard. Alternatively, visit the National Museum of Bermuda to learn more about the local wildlife.
St George’s Island: Our self-guided Bermuda trips are designed for you to explore some of the most beautiful islands at your own pace. St George’s was formerly the capital of Bermuda and is named after St George, the patron saint of England. The island is drenched in history and has been listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The streets are lined with colourful houses, and you’ll find lots of interesting attractions around every corner. Discover historical buildings displaying traditional Bermudian architecture, stroll through the pretty parks or visit some of the old forts that date back to the British era. Along the coast, you’ll find the famous Corsican Tower and C17 forts at Ferry Reach.
