Bermuda may be a small island, but we have some shopping gems. Here are a few resident favorites for you to have on hand while exploring our capital city!
For island souvenirs:

Flying Colours has been family-run for over 80 years and continues to be a fan favorite to visitors and locals alike.
Just because you live somewhere far away from the ocean, that doesn’t mean you can’t create a perfect tropical getaway inside your home. Whether you’re looking for unique tableware for your next dinner party or original Bermuda-inspired artwork to bring the island’s bright, vibrant colors into your house décor, The Island Shop is your place! Each design is hand-painted on ceramics, linens, festive cards, and more by local artist Barbara Finsness.
