Every Monday evening during the summer months, Bermuda’s Royal Naval Dockyard hosts the widely popular Destination Dockyard event. Local arts and crafts, glassblowing demonstrations, food, and the rhythms of colorful Gombey dance troupes come together to make fun and festivity last well into the night.
Several of the Dockyard’s restaurants, attractions, and businesses take part in this weekly event. Dolphin Quest puts on special dolphin shows and the Bermuda Arts Center stays open late for guests to browse the boutique shops and galleries. Be sure to check out the free samples of ethnic food at the Frog and Onion Pub. You can also participate in a late night beach reggae party at Snorkel Park Beach.
Located on the western tip of the island, in Sandys Parish, the Royal Naval Dockyard once served as an outpost for the British Royal Navy. In recent years, the historic site has become a popular shopping, museum, and entertainment complex as well as a passenger ship port.
