Escape to Bermuda: Winter Your Way
Go Whale Watching
One of the best-kept secrets of the Atlantic Ocean is the population of humpback whales that migrate past Bermuda every winter. Find out how to spot them from land and sea during your winter excursion.
Explore Cooper's Island
Rent a bicycle from Oleander Cycles in St. George’s, then pedal your way to Cooper’s Island Nature Reserve, a 12-acre refuge where you can explore hiking trails, spot seabirds and marvel at the hawksbill turtles that pop their heads up through its gin-clear waters. Get sweeping panoramas of the East End from the wildlife observation tower.
Bermuda's famous beaches were made for exploring. See Bermuda's favourite beach walks and learn where to meander among rocky outcrops and sparkling pink sand, search for seaglass and more.
Tee off at Port Royal
Start your day like a pro with 18 holes at Port Royal Golf Course, a sprawling 6,842-yard course that’s home to the Bermuda Championship. The PGA TOUR event will be played at the Robert Trent Jones-designed course through 2023. You can truly test your game here – if, of course, you can keep your eyes off its sweeping oceanfront vistas
Align your chakras with a private yoga session overlooking the island’s stunning coastline. A certified instructor will meet you at a beautiful outdoor locale, and will lead you on your blissful Hatha or Vinyasa-style session. Namaste, indeed.
Luxe Picnic on the Beach
Grab a blanket, head to John Smith’s Bay and let the pros at Eettafel serve a luxurious picnic dinner on a private pink-sand beach. Dig into delicate apps and hearty mains (think tuna ceviche and beef short ribs) but make sure to leave room for dessert; decadent options like molten chocolate cake are a perfect way to end a peaceful day in paradise.
Horseback Riding on the Beach
Inspire a lifetime of family memories as you take in stunning coastal vistas and learn about the island while astride the majestic steeds of Moran Meadows Bermuda Horse Trail Rides.

Budding marine scientists will also love the Bermuda Underwater Exploration Institute, a 41,000-square-foot discovery centre devoted to Bermuda’s vast marine ecosystem).
