Anything from water sports, golfing, hiking, or even sunbathing – you will be sure to find some activity to keep you busy during your stay.
Getting around in Bermuda is fairly. Taxis are plentiful throughout the Island with friendly and helpful drivers that possess an encyclopedic knowledge of the island. You could always get adventurous and rent a moped or scooter, use the public bus system, and ferry boats that will take you from one end of the Island to the other for a small fee.
Dining is always a treat in Bermuda as there is a diversified selection of international cuisine to choose from. Be sure to make reservations and check the dress code at some of the finer restaurants. It is a general practice of most restaurants to add the tip to the bill automatically.
