SWIM WITH DOLPHINS AT DOCKYARD

Watch glass blowers or buy Bermuda Rum cake

Port Royal Golf Bermuda

Nature lovers will enjoy exploring hilly Hog Bay Park, where farmers work the land.  Part of the path takes you along the shoreline to admire the turquoise waters of the ocean.  Look out for the smallest drawbridge in the world at Somerset Bridge – it is under 2 feet wide, just enough to let yacht masts pass through!

Scaur Hill Fort is really interesting – built in the 1860’s to defend the Royal Naval Dockyard from any possible American attack.

Royal Naval Dockyard

It is the Royal Naval Dockyard that provides so much of historical and modern interest to visitors on holidays to Bermuda.  Cross the moat into the Maritime Museum to see old boats, gold treasures and to marvel at how man conquered the sea in very basic vessels.  The Commissioners House includes paintings, old charts and maps, information on Bermuda’s slave history and stunning views over the Dockyard, the island and the ocean.

DolphinQuest

Head to Dolphin Quest to swim with dolphins, book first.  Opportunities to buy local crafts, pottery, glassware, paintings and more basic souvenirs abound and there are plenty of eateries too.

Golf

As Bermuda is only 20 miles x 1 mile Golf is always nearby.  The nearest course to this parish is just into Southampton Parish and is the Port Royal course.  Set in a stunning location on the water’s edge your concierge can arrange Tee off times for you. There are plenty of other courses on the island too.

We recommend the delightful Cambridge Beaches Resort and Spa here.  On a 30 acre peninsula the beaches, the glorious gardens, the dining choices and the excellent Spa make this a really lovely spot for a luxury Bermuda holiday.
