Get Out and See Bermuda!
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.

    Day 1
    A Day of Watersports
    Arrive in Bermuda and enjoy a scenic drive to your accommodations at Elbow Beach Resort, situated along one of Bermuda’s iconic pink-sand beaches. After unpacking and taking a leisurely lunch at the hotel, you’ll meet with your instructor from Island Winds to learn windsurfing or kite boarding in Bermuda’s steady tradewinds. We can also arrange for an excursion in a yacht if you want to sail the seas that will be the site of the America’s Cup in 2017. For those looking for a low impact day on the water, opt for a standup paddleboarding tour around one of Bermuda’s protected bays, where the water is so clear you can spot sea turtles and reef fish swimming beneath your board.

    Day 2
    Bike to the Botanical Gardens
    Pick up a mountain bike—or an electric cruiser if you prefer not to pedal—from Mrs. T at Elbow Beach Cycles and hit the Bermuda Railway Trail. This 18-mile route follows the course of an old railroad that stopped running in 1948. Along the way, you enjoy gorgeous views of the sea, before stopping to eat a gourmet picnic lunch under one of the sprawling banyan trees at the Bermuda Botanical Gardens. While there, explore the greenhouse packed with exotic orchids, and stroll through the sensory Garden for the Sightless, filled with the most fragrant flowers and herbs.

    Day 3
    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.

    Day 4
    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.
