Oh, the maritime battles and pirate adventures to explore! I like to do a little research about the history and culture of a place, even if I’m going to dive headlong into the requisite hedonism of a proper island vacation. Bermuda gets even more charming once you learn about its colonial and naval history. To satisfy my craving for historical backdrop, Fort St. Catherine, Fort Hamilton and The Royal Navy Dockyard are musts.
A hotelier I chatted with let me in on a local secret: there’s a tiny hidden beach below the Royal Artillery Association Club in St. Georges, just a stone’s throw away from Fort St. Catherine.
After getting your history lesson on, a Dark n’ Stormy cocktail and a snooze on the beach are in order to allow for full absorption of information.
