10 Top things to do in Bermuda - 7-days holiday itinerary.

Bermuda travel guide.

British Overseas Territory of Bermuda is located in the crystal-clear waters of the North Atlantic Ocean, just 1,000 kilometers off the coast of North Carolina. With its subtropical climate, colonial charm and vibrant local culture, Bermuda welcomes visitors year-round, making it an ideal destination for those seeking sun, relaxation, and adventure. I tried all and the adventure was unforgettable!


CURRENCY: Bermuda Dollar. ATM’s and Card payments are widely accessible.

BEST TIME TO VISIT: High season: May to October (with day temperatures reaching 30 Celsius degrees). November (24 degrees) – hurricane warning (I got stuck on the island once with all flights being cancelled). 

Getting to Bermuda is easy.

The location of the island may suggest it’s far and expensive trip to get there. Nothing like this! It’s actually extremely easy to get to Bermuda from number of USA airports. 

Travelers from many countries, including the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom, do not need a visa to enter Bermuda for stays of up to 90 days. However, it is essential to check the specific visa requirements based on your nationality before traveling.

I flew from Europe with British Airways, which offer direct flights to Bermuda – however the tickets are quite expensive (around 1000 Euro). But getting to Bermuda from United States is really cheap if you book in advance.

Transportation in Bermuda.

TAXIS are readily available in Bermuda, but they can be quite expensive. It’s a convenient way to get to/from Bermuda Airport – however the fare will be $50+ one way. There is a taxi coordinator at the main entrance, making sure taxis are available for all travelers from the airport.  MY ADVICE: if you like the driver ask him for a business card and use him for your stay (no harm to negotiate better rates).

Bermuda law does not support hotels from dropping off and picking up their guests from the airport. That’s why pre-booked CAR SERVICE/SHUTTLE is a very popular option for airport transfer – for best service and rates you can book it on is a booking service for transfers and car rentals with a personal driver at the best prices.

CAR RENTAL in Bermuda is not available. Instead there’s something much more adventurous – MOROTBIKE RENTAL. Renting a scooter is a very popular and affordable option to explore the island at your own pace. So grab your buddy and hold tight for a joyride 😁!

Bermuda roads are safe and the island is small enough for comfortable moped travels. Additionally, parking is hussle free and you’ll be able to squeez in to any tiny corner of the island

Public transport in Bermuda.

Bermuda’s public transportation system consists of buses and ferries, providing easy access to various attractions and beaches. Surprisingly there is quite good bus network in Bermuda with all BUS ROUTES AND SCHEDULES ARE AVAILABLE ON THE OFFICIAL WEBSITE:

With this Bermuda travel guide, you have plenty of information to make your ideal itinerary based on your holiday preferences. There are many tours highly popular and highly rated available to choose from. 

Meet the island for best stay itinerary.

Once you landed, it’s difficlut to recognize most interesting corners of the island. After my two trips to Bermuda, I was sure I have explored mast of the major sites – while it turned out there is a lot more to see! That’s why a half-day sightseeing Island Wrap Tour of Bermuda – is a great idea to explore key landmarks of the island on the beginning of your stay.

The tour includes the Royal Naval Dockyard and famous pink-sand beaches at Horseshoe Bay, with pickup and drop-off from the cruise port included in the price.

Water sports adventure & Diving in Bermuda.

Bermuda offers a wide range of activities and experiences to cater all travelers’ preferences. Water sports enthusiasts will be delighted by the variety of activities from snorkeling and diving to paddleboarding and kayaking, the island’s warm waters provide the perfect playground for aquatic adventures 😉 You’ll be able to explore beautiful coral reefs, shipwrecks, and marine life that thrive in Bermuda’s underwater world. 

I went for a 2-tank dive, I was very much looking forward to deep ocean diving adventure. The boat takes you far from the shores of Bermuda on a 40 minute drive. As much I want to say it was an exceptional experience, I have to be honest and say the visibility wasn’t great and I wouldn’t place this dive on the top of my list. 

Best beaches in Bermuda.

Bermuda’s beaches are truly remarkable, with powdery pink sands that stand out against vibrant turquoise waters.

Horseshoe Bay Beach.

Horseshoe Bay Beach – one of the most famous beaches on the island, very popular among locals, offers a postcard-perfect setting with its dramatic limestone formations and crystal-clear coves. The beach is perfect for swimming, sunbathing, and snorkeling.

Warwick Long Bay Beach & Jobson's Cove.

Warwick Long Bay Beach is a long stretch of pink sand beach bordered by rocky cliffs and lush vegetation. It is a quieter beach compared to Horseshoe Bay, making it a great spot for relaxation and solitude. 

Jobson’s Cove is a hidden gem tucked away between Warwick Long Bay and Horseshoe Bay. It is a small, secluded beach with calm waters and a picturesque setting. The surrounding cliffs provide a sense of privacy and make it a great spot for snorkeling.

Cooper's Island Nature Reserve.

Cooper’s Island nature Reserve is an amazing place to chill among the beauty shores of the island. Fishing is forbiden – it’s a protected area. Take a long walk along the sandy paths and explore many empty, paradise beaches where you can enjoy swimming and snorkeling.
