In every season, the conditions in Bermuda are ideal for an active vacation spent exploring the island, whether it’s by bike, boat, or on foot along Bermuda’s scenic trails. Katie Cadar of TravelStore offers the perfect itinerary for active travelers who want to stretch their legs and experience new adventures, from learning how to harness the wind and skim the waves on a kite board, to watching humpback whales from a yacht, and biking the beautiful vistas of the Bermuda Railway Trail.
Watching the Whales
Take a ride to Flatts Village to join an all-day adventure at sea with the Bermuda Aquarium, Museum & Zoo when you will get to witness the beautiful ballet of humpback whales as they breech, spy-hop and fin-slap in the offshore waters. The whales migrate past Bermuda in March and April, making this the ideal time for wildlife watchers who want to catch a glimpse of these magnificent creatures.
Get Artsy at the Dockyard
On your last day, you start with a sightseeing drive west, making stops to survey the coast from Gibb’s Hill Lighthouse and see Somerset Bridge, the world’s smallest working drawbridge, before you arrive at the Royal Navy Dockyard. Here, you’ll visit the Bermuda Rum Cake Company to sample the eponymous cakes, made with award-winning Gosling’s Black Seal Rum, before heading next door to Dockyard Glassworks to watch the glassblowers as they create pieces from molten glass. Then take a stroll through the Bermuda Arts Centre to catch the latest display of works from local artists, which rotate every six weeks.
