Bermuda Things to Do

  • Hamilton (Capitol City)

    Bermuda Things to Do

    The Bermuda Anglican Cathedral, over on (of course) Church Street, is one of Hamilton's most impressive buildings. The original cathedral on the site was built in 1844, but was apparently burned down by an arsonist. (THERE's someone who wants to take the express train to hell, eh?) The cathedral was reconstructed in 1894, in an imposing neo-Gothic...

    Bermuda Things to Do

  • Ft St Catherine & Tobacco Bay

    Bermuda Things to Do

    I was in Miami in December 2002 and saw in a travel agency a cheap ticket to Bermudas Islands. Then I decided to go there the next day. I spent four days in those islands. They are like gardens for the exuberant nature. People are gentle and always smiled to me and even greeted me in the morning. Saint Georges was my favorite place to rest and...

  • Caves - Hamilton Parish

    Bermuda Things to Do

    Crystal Caves is a great place to visit in the heat of the afternoon. The history of the caves began in the early 1900's when some boys discovered it while playing. Once inside you'll see clear water and delicate rock formations. The line was long, but moved steadily. The cost was inexpensive at $6 for adults and $3 for a child 4-12. A guide...

At the entrance you walk immediately into the aquarium section which is quite nice as it features local fish and underwater...

    Bermuda Things to Do

    We took the bus into Hamilton and stopped on the way in Horseshoe Bay.

They had to wait for a little while for it to open but then enjoyed the morning there without too many other...

    Why Not?! Well, if you're a tourist, you will, but if you're a local you won't. The locals think it's too cold... Not for me! To me, 70 F is warm enough, and it makes a great memory to swim on New Year's Day! The beaches are so beautiful and clean, and the water is so blue... How can you stay away?!

  • Gibbs Hill Lighthouse

    Bermuda Things to Do

    If the weather turns questionable one thing you can do is go to the lighthouse. There is a nice little breakfast nook where you can drink tea or spit pineapple juice all over yourself and the floor if you're so inclined, then climb the 186 steps to the top. A few exhibits occupy each floor so you don't climb all at once, and when you get to the top...
