    Sails Up
    In Bermuda, sailing is more than just a fun way to spend a day. It’s a legacy. Not only was the island founded by a group of shipwrecked mariners in the early 17th century, but those same sailors also invented a rig that is still in use on sailboats today. True to that seafaring tradition, Bermuda continues to make waves by hosting the 35th America’s Cup, presented by Louis Vuitton, in May and June 2017. Ahoy!

    Burnt Point Fort
    Constructed in 1688, Burnt Point Fort on St. George's Island was designed to defend the harbour from enemy ships, while the nearby Martello Tower protected against cannon fire. The view is absolutely breathtaking.

    Jobson Cove
    The dreamy Jobson Cove really has it all—all those legendary Bermudian hues, that is: pink sand for sunbathing, turquoise water for splashing, and limestone rocks for that taste of primordial beauty.

    Crystal Caves
    Escaping that island heat is easy when there’s a 30-million-year-old cave nearby. And even better? Wandering through the Crystal Caves is like exploring a natural palace filled with otherworldly rock formations, chandelier clusters, and stunning mirror-like pools.
