Bermuda

Bermuda Islands Discovery

  • Unspoilt pocket-sized paradise, perfect for independent discovery; fabulous year-round climate
  • Sugary pink sands, secret turquoise bays, sea grottoes
  • Gentle traffic-free trails, spectacular coastal paths, lush woodland tracks
  • Colonial towns, pastel coloured villages, panoramic forts, vibrant Hamilton
  • Colourful flowers, kiskadees, tree frogs, sea turtles and humpback whales!

This self-guided walking holiday is the perfect mix of gentle walking and independent exploring allowing you to discover the quintessential island paradise of Bermuda at your own pace. Warmed by the temperate Gulf Stream, this sub-tropical gem, seemingly adrift in the North Atlantic Ocean is a stunning archipelago of 181 islands and islets, the eight largest of which form the fishhook-shaped mainland. Famed for its stunning turquoise waters in a whole rainbow of blues, incredible pink sands and coral reefs home to hundreds of colourful fish, Bermuda is a beach-lover's heaven and, as Britain's oldest colony, it is packed with history too. Beyond the postcard-worthy bays, the islands offer a lush interior alive with a multitude of birds and flowers, making it perfect to explore on foot. As Mark Twain commented, 'You go to heaven if you want. I'd rather stay here in Bermuda'.

A traffic-free trail spans Bermuda's diminutive 21-mile length and we provide detailed routes for 6 different walks, each exploring it's own diverse sections of the islands. From hidden sea grottoes to panoramic forts, lush flower-speckled fields to the sun-kissed sands of the South Shore Trail, the kaleidoscope of colour is unforgettable and the diversity of flora and fauna unbeatable. To help you get around, a 14-day travel pass is included, allowing unlimited access to the modern and efficient bus and ferry networks. Our local partner, Tim Rogers, will brief you about how everything works; he has a wealth of knowledge about Bermuda's flora, fauna and history.

You'll stay in a deluxe ocean view room (with either balcony or terrace) at the exclusive Coco Reef Hotel on the edge of the best private beach on the island and just 15 minutes from the capital, Hamilton. You're free to pick and choose your itinerary each day and, with stunning beaches, fabulous golf courses, outstanding natural beauty and fascinating history to discover there's plenty of interest for your 'rest days'.

We also offer a 7-night itinerary on our Islands of Bermuda Walk

Day 3: The Walking routes

You're free to choose when and where to walk:

Somerset and Ireland Island 7km/4.5mi/2hr or 8km/5mi/3hr

Begin at Somerset Bridge, the world's smallest drawbridge, and follow the Railway Trail lined with unusual screw palm and cedar, reaching C19 Fort Scaur, with stunning views to Hamilton. Onwards to sleepy Somerset Village for lunch by pretty Mangrove Bay, you then follow a coastal track out along Ireland Island to Bermuda's most westerly end.

Exploring the East End 11km/7mi/4.5hr

You start the day in charming St George, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. There's time to explore the tangle of colourful streets and pretty harbour, before a dazzling path lined with prickly pear and casuarina leads to Gates Bay where Sir George Somers first came ashore in 1609. You continue along a herb-scented coastal track to Ferry Reach, with its C17 forts and Corsican tower.

St David's and Cooper's Island 4km/2.5mi/2hr or 5km/3mi/2.5hr

At tranquil St David's, fragrant hibiscus scents the salty ocean air as you visit Red Hole bay. Then it's on to St David's Battery, with cliff views stretching infinitely across the ocean, before heading over to Cooper's Island, Bermuda's newest nature reserve, a truly isolated and unspoilt area.

Sights of the South Shore 13km/8mi/3.5hr

From Gibbs Hill Lighthouse, balcony views span the entire west end across the azure waters of Great Sound, dotted with white sailboats. From here you descend to the sugary pink sands of the South Shore Trail, a string of nine gorgeous bays linked by a scented path of flowering morning glory and oleander. There's time for a dip at Chaplin Bay before a shaded path leads past cassava fields to the hotel, in time for a dip in the hotel's pool.

Coast and Caves 12km/7.5mi/4.5hr

Colourful prickly poppies dot the sparkling coastal route towards Flatts Village, where friendly locals cast their nets into the azure expanse of Harrington Sound, an inland lake littered with sea grottoes. It's then onwards with views over the northern shore to reach Blue Hole Park, a tiny treasure trove of caves filled with aquamarine waters. Maybe savour a Dark 'n' Stormy cocktail after visiting the fascinating Crystal Caves, then take the bus back to the hotel.

Botanical Gardens and Spittal Pond 5km/3mi/1.5hr or 4km/2.5mi/2.5hr

Alive with the noisy chatter of yellow kiskadee, a gentle allspice-scented trail brings you to Paget Marsh, a wetland oasis, home to herons and warblers. Then it's on to the Botanical Gardens - John Lennon's Double Fantasy album is named after the purple flower he spotted here - before heading to Spittal Pond; maybe spot herons, egrets and flamingos before following the coastal path, vibrant with sea lavender, looking out for humpback whales basking in the warm Atlantic waters.

Day 4: Independent exploring

There's plenty to see and do for the remainder of your stay, with the hotel's private beach an obvious attraction! The island boasts many other beautiful beaches, such as Elbow Beach and Horseshoe Bay, and several excellent golf courses too.

Pay a visit to the island's capital, Hamilton, and stroll along the harbour where pastel-coloured colonial buildings mix with high-end shops. Perhaps visit the stone Cathedral of the Most Holy Trinity and climb the tower for glorious city views befroe relaxing in one of the many harbour-side cafes for a spot of people watching.

The Royal Naval Dockyard is also well worth a visit: once the largest naval base outside the UK, the beautifully restored buildings now house a museum that offers a fascinating glimpse into the UK's and Bermuda's naval past. Nearby you'll also find the National Museum of Bermuda where you can discover more about the island's history and wildlife and pay a visit to Dolphin Quest to learn more about these fascinating animals, while the Bermuda Aquarium and Zoo on the shores of Harringston Sound, offers the chance to see seals, turtles, fish, monkeys, birds, and the first living coral reef exhibit in the world.

Coco Reef Resort, Bermuda

Swimming Pool IconHair dryer iconNEARBY:

Coco Reef enjoys one of the best locations in Bermuda, right on the edge of one of the most stunning beaches of the South Shore with pink sands, several reefs and quintessentially Bermudian azure waters!

The hotel has 64 rooms divided between four pastel coloured buildings set over two floors. The rooms have a 'tropical' feel utilising traditional Bermudian colours and are decorated with wicker furniture and floral furnishings.

All have private facilities with bathtub and shower as well as a balcony or terrace too equipped with furniture, mostly with good ocean views.

They offer panoramic views of the ocean and beach. Every room in both categories has a view of the ocean from the bed itself!

As your stay at the Coco Reef is on a room only basis, please let us know if you would like to add breakfast, or breakfast and evening meal to your stay. Please contact us for a quote.
