A Culinary Adventure in Bermuda
Bermuda is a tropical island paradise known for its decidedly British flair, island spirit and divine pink sand beaches. However, what many people don’t realize is that Bermuda offers an impressive food culture, and John Clifford of International Travel Management knows exactly where you should dine. Here he offers his itinerary, specially designed to whet your appetite. By day you explore the island, perusing museums and art galleries, hiking secluded shores and calling “fore” on famous golf courses. And afterwards, you sample the finest meals Bermuda has to offer, from local specialties like spiny lobster and mussel pie to chefs who are masters at preparing dishes from around the world.

    Day 1
    Island Views and Bermudian Flavors
    You fly into Bermuda and get whisked away to the elegant Rosewood Tucker's Point. Relish the scene from your veranda before heading to Hamilton for your first culinary experience in Bermuda at Tribe Road Kitchen. This popular gastropub has a long menu of tasty burgers and sandwiches—fuel to explore the island, including a climb up the 185 steps to the top of Gibb's Hill Lighthouse. One of the world's first cast-iron lighthouses, it has panoramic views of all of Bermuda. After returning to your hotel for a rest, leave time to explore more of Hamilton before heading to dinner at Ascot's Restaurant, noted for its award-winning continental cuisine, such as the signature Barbary duck.

    Day 2
    18-Hole Courses and 10-Course Meals
    Start the day with your preferred tee-time at Tucker's Point Golf Club. The Charles Bank-designed course boasts 18 holes with spectacular sea views. After you have finished your round, spend the afternoon by the Rosewood Tucker's Point pool, resting up for the exquisite Point 360: The Murals Experience at the hotel's The Point restaurant. Inspired by the Pan Am Sky Club murals on display at the restaurant, Chef Gerry Adams will take you on a 10-course culinary journey around the world, from cumin-spiced lamb evoking the bazaars of Beirut, to five-spice scallops that transport you to the street markets of Hong Kong. Bermuda is represented, of course, by rockfish with peas and rice.

    Day 4
    Bird Watching and Spa Pampering
    Spend the morning hiking the cliffside trail of South Shore Park, with picturesque views and fantastic birdwatching as longtails ride the updrafts. We can also arrange a unique Bermuda experience—catch and cook with a local fisherman, who will teach you how to prepare your catch and cook it on the spot. Reward yourself with an afternoon at Rosewood Tucker Point’s Sense Spa. The 12,000 square foot retreat’s The Bermuda Triangle is a trio of treatments: restorative rain-splash therapy, a massage with locally sourced aloe, and a citrus facial. Revitalized, celebrate your last night at the historic Tom Moore’s Tavern, with local specialties like fish chowder with black rum and sherry pepper.
