Island Overview

Bermuda is 21-square miles of stunning natural beauty and colourful island culture. Unwind on powdery-soft pink beaches, tee off on one of its many world-class golf courses or explore trendy restaurants and shops along Hamilton’s waterfront – it’s all within easy reach of Azura.

Our Tourism Authority has a vibrant and informative website which will tell you all you need to know about planning your trip.

There is so much to do beyond golf and tennis: visiting our top class historical sites and museums, enjoying all the modern watersports and the food and bike tours, exploring our reefs, caves, and nature preserves.

To get a basic lay of the land, you’ll want to cover the island's three regions – West End, Central Bermuda and East End – and visit as many of our world-renowned beaches as you can fit in!

Beaches

Bermuda’s dramatic coastline holds hidden coves and wide crescents of beach, all blanketed by that iconic pale-pink sand and brushed by gentle surf. Some beaches are popular and prized, like Horseshoe Bay Beach, which USA Today named one of the Caribbean’s top 10 beaches (even though Bermuda isn’t technically in the Caribbean). Other beaches feel like secluded island hideaways. You’ll find great beaches across the island, but the famous South Shore is a perfect starting point.

Hamilton & Central Bermuda

Central Bermuda is home to the capital City of Hamilton, a harbour town known for its blend of global sophistication, vibrant nightlife and local flavour. Enjoy dining, shopping, dance clubs and the island’s most cosmopolitan culture along Front Street downtown, and find great beaches, botanical gardens, lush parks and oceanfront golf nearby.

East End

Step back in time as you stroll the centuries-old brick streets of the Town of St. George, Bermuda's former capital and a UNESCO World Heritage site. The well-preserved historic town and nearby fortress make St. George's and the East End a haven for British colonial architecture, history and culture. Nearby, discover many unique natural attractions, including the limestone formations of Tobacco Bay Beach, Tom Moore’s Jungle and the Crystal Caves of Bermuda. Cooper’s Island Nature Reserve and Ferry Reach National Park are both flush with flora and birdlife, including several rare species.

West End & Dockyard

One of Bermuda’s most popular destinations, the historic Royal Naval Dockyard anchors the West End. The Dockyard is home to a major cruise ship port and serves as a hub for sightseeing, shopping, dining, entertainment and an array of island experiences. Climb up Gibbs Hill Lighthouse for panoramic views of the South Shore, and explore the village of Somerset, home to calm bays, candy-coloured churches and the most photogenic little drawbridge you’ll ever see.
