Pink sand, turquoise waters, endless blue sky – the island's beaches are among Bermuda’s greatest natural assets. With its trademark sands, Elbow Beach runs along the southern edge of Paget Parish. It’s not as busy as some of the other beaches around Bermuda, you can relax and enjoy the views away from it all.  

It’s surrounded by a selection of quaint seaside cocktail bars, while parasols, deck chairs and nearby cabanas are generally for hotel use only, there’s a small rental fee which means there’s always somewhere to settle in the shade.

You came to Bermuda to escape, right? These places will get you off the beaten path for peace, quiet and plenty of natural beauty.

Jobson’s Cove: You’ll feel a world away from everyone and everything when you close your eyes and listen to the gentle waves rolling in. Jobson’s Cove is a great spot for snorkeling with marine life frequenting the shallow waters.

Seymour’s Pond: This nature reserve is tucked away in Southampton Parish. Lush farmlands and hillside forests surround the pond create a calm backdrop for a picnic or reading session. You’ll be accompanied by egrets, sandpipers and other vibrant Bermudian wildlife, making this a prime spot for birdwatchers and nature-lovers.

Cooper’s Island: Situated on the southeast tip of the island, this beautiful spot was previously occupied by the U.S. military and NASA, only reopening to the public in 2011. Now a 12-acre nature reserve, the park boasts seabirds, cedar trees and giant land crabs. You can climb the wildlife observation tower for a sweeping panorama of the island.

4. Eat Al Fresco and Enjoy Nature

Namaste! Maybe you've done some yoga. Maybe you've done some paddleboarding. But I bet you've never done both at the same time. Bermuda's Yoga with Tali offers hour-long sessions out on the water on a stand-up paddleboard (SUP). It's the perfect path to inner peace.

These are just some of the relaxing activities you can unwind with on the island, but there’s much to enjoy all year round.
