However you choose to spend your time, Bermuda is the perfect place to experience the cultural crossover of African, Portuguese, West Indian, North American and even British influences, all set within a tiny island, just 20 miles long and 1 mile wide.
The Crystal and Fantasy Caves are spectacular, like a scene from a fairy-tale and completely natural with crystal formations of all shapes and sizes hanging above a lake so clear it looks like it was made from glass. The Bermuda Botanical Gardens offer 35 acres of flowers, herbs and fruit trees and if you visit first thing in the morning, you will be surrounded by the scents of jasmine and rosemary. The gardens are a perfect place for an alfresco lunch and walking through one of the traditional moon gates, a circular stone archway, is said to bring good luck! There is also an aquarium, zoo and a whole host of heritage sites and museums showcasing 500 years of local history.
When the sun goes down, head to Front Street in Hamilton for one of the signature Dark ‘n’ Stormy cocktails in one of the lively bistros or lounges. Enjoy everything from dancing, live entertainment, quiz nights and sporting events.
