Affordable one-way flights to Bermuda/Hamilton

Bermuda

The island of Bermuda is famous for its mysterious and rich history and you’ll find plenty of fascinating sites here as well as white sandy beaches straight off the front of a travel guide. Talking of beaches, there are many gorgeous seaside spots to choose from. Check out the popular Horseshoe Bay Beach which boasts fine powder sands and gentle waters clear enough to see shoals of colourful fish. This beach can get busy during the day but if you venture along the rocky cliff paths you’ll find quieter spots and get the extra benefit of spectacular views of Bermuda.

Bermuda definitely doesn’t disappoint on water sports and you can choose from snorkelling and diving, as well as jet skiing and “helmet diving” with Hartley's Undersea Walk. This weird and wonderful water sport has you walking across the seabed in an old fashioned diver’s helmet, giving you stunning up close and personal views of Bermuda’s colourful fish and corals. If you’d rather stay above the waves, take to the seas on a catamaran tour where you can relax on deck with a cocktail, or even enjoy a romantic dinner date at sea. If you’re feeling really fancy, charter a private yacht for the day and sail around the island’s shores.

More about Bermuda/Hamilton

Among Bermuda’s popular sights you’ve got Gibb's Hill Lighthouse and the fascinating St. Peter's Church which dates back to the early 17th century and gives tourists a tranquil break from their busy holiday itinerary. For something a little more remote, try Elbow Beach which has the same soft pastel sands and crystal clear waters but more space for snorkelling or body boarding. Tobacco Bay is another fantastic choice and also has a number of good cafes and bars for when the sun goes down. Back on land there’s plenty to keep you busy too. Active types will love the hiking trails, underground caves, and cliff jumping points dotted all over the island.

If you’re on a family holiday to Bermuda, take a day out to visit the incredible Dolphin Quest centre where you can feed fishy friends and even tick off that lifelong wish of swimming with dolphins. For more aquatic fun, the Bermuda Aquarium, Natural History Museum & Zoo is a great day out for the whole family. According to the myth, it’s easy to get lost in Bermuda, but considering the stunning location, that doesn’t sound too bad to us! Perhaps that’s where the legend comes from, because a holiday in this island paradise will make you never want to leave.
