Things to Do in Bermuda For Young Families

Thinking of coming to the island with the young ones? Worried about keeping them entertained? Don’t worry — there’s plenty on offer for young families across the island during low and high seasons.


What to Get Up to During Low Season

During the low season, the temperature is cooler, but with January average daily temperatures of around 66°F and average daily highs of 70°F it is still pleasant compared with most of the eastern seaboard. The cooler weather won’t stop you from keeping the kids occupied. Here’s what you could get up to: 

Explore the Royal Naval Dockyard

Steeped in history on the island's western side, the Royal Naval Dockyard is an ideal spot to take the kids for a day of exploring. After taking a stroll around Bermuda’s marine hub, retreat to one of the child-friendly restaurants. There’s plenty more to enjoy here, including a cinema and trampoline park.


Wonder the Botanical Gardens

Made up of 36 acres, Bermuda Botanical Gardens is home to a palm garden, subtropical fruit garden and greenhouse filled with stunning flowers and plants. With so much space here, the kids can run wild and free. There’s no doubt they'll be tired out after an afternoon at one of Bermuda’s most stunning natural spots.


Enjoy a Horse and Carriage Ride Through St. George’s

Kids love animals — so they’re bound to enjoy a horse and carriage ride through the 18th-century town of St. George’s. After the horse and carriage ride has finished, there are plenty of other fantastic spots to see in the town. These include Tobacco Bay and the Unfinished Church.


What to Get Up to During High Season

As summer arrives, things start to hot up and temperatures range from the low 70s to the mid 80s. Pack plenty of sunscreen if you’re coming to Bermuda with the kids during high season. Here’s what’s on offer:

Watch the Humpback Whale Migration

Around 15,000 humpback whales migrate from the Caribbean at the start of April. If you’re here with the family at this time, it’s a spectacle you can’t miss. The weather is starting to heat up now, so you could even enjoy a picnic on the beach afterward.


Take a Trip to Gibbs Lighthouse

Built in 1844, Gibbs Lighthouse is located in Cross Bay and is one of Bermuda’s most historical points of interest. There are two lighthouses on the island and this one is the tallest. You’ll catch some amazing island views on a clear day. Even better — it’s guaranteed to tire the kids out!


Spend the Day at the Beach

With 34 pink sandy beaches to choose from, you won’t be short of options if you’re planning a day at the beach. Play in the sea with the kids, build sandcastles and soak up the glorious sunshine. We all know a day at the beach equals top-quality family time.


Things to Do in Bermuda For Families With Older Children

Get Competitive on the Golf Course

There’s nothing better than a bit of friendly competition and the golf course is the ideal place for it. There are eight golf courses on the island in total. Some are tougher than others, so do your research to find one that meets the family's skill level.
