What to do…
We say Bermuda is another world… and it’s yours to explore by foot, by rental scooter (there are no rental cars), or by bus and taxi.
Bermuda Yoga Festival 2016 is hosted at Bermuda’s beautiful Grotto Bay Beach Resort, a lush subtropical property with charm that blends nature with modern facilities. It also offers the perfect balance of remote tranquility while being conveniently located for public transport and taxi tours for those who wish to explore Bermuda.
Grotto Bay Beach Resort is a short ride to the UNESCO World Heritage historic town of St George’s, settled in 1612 and Bermuda’s first capital. It is the oldest continuously occupied town of English origin in the new world.
St George’s boasts a quaint town centre with boutique stores and a variety of waterside restaurants, specializing in fresh seafood and local cuisine, friendly service with a smile and a Bermudian always willing to oblige visitors with a tale or two.
Time your visit to witness a period costume re-enactment of the ducking stool, step back in time as you sit in the stocks where criminals of the past were taunted with rotten tomatoes, or hear the Town Crier bellow.
Take your time exploring Fort St Catherine and Tobacco Bay, a drive around the area is a delight as the winding lanes hug the rugged coastline behind a sprawling public golf course. Other highlights include St Peter’s Church and graveyard, the Bermuda Perfumery where you’ll see the production of local perfumes, Tucker House Museum, an elegant example of how colonial Bermudians lived and Carter House; travel back to the 17th century and see what it was like to live as one of the first settlers on St. David’s Island and the new world.
Photography enthusiasts will appreciate the way the light plays on the forts, the countless turquoise hues of the ocean and the character of old buildings and gardens.
Sights closer to your accommodations at Grotto Bay Beach Resort are Crystal Caves. Take a guided tour deep into the caves and be inspired by the natural art of stalactites and stalagmites that have formed over millennia.
Tom Moore’s Jungle, also opposite Grotto Bay, is a moderate walking trail and offers a place of solitude in nature. Sit and ponder at a natural lagoon and enjoy the birdlife and the scurry of an occasional lizard as they go about their day.
Water sports are an option for the adventurous visitor – choose from jetskiing, scuba diving, snorkelling, glass-bottomed boats, paddle boats and stand up paddle boarding.
