Here are some of my top tips if you’re planning on visiting some or all of these non-touristy things to do while you’re in Bermuda.
See what you want to see
Don’t get bogged down with doing “non-touristy” things, just enjoy your vacation and see whatever you want to see. For example, Horseshoe Bay and Tobacco Bay would be classed as “touristy”, however, I wouldn’t miss them or the world. They’re amazing places to visit. So, if you like the look of something just go and see it.
Get there early
If you’re planning on visiting more “touristy” places but want to try and minimize the risk of crowds as much as possible, then get there early. Set your alarm for 6 am and get to your destination.
Get a guide
Getting a taxi tour or a private tour for the day might be more expensive but you’ll get to uncover other hidden gems that only the locals know about, such as new viewpoints and hidden beaches that aren’t splattered all over the internet.
Plan your route
Carefully plan your routes and take into consideration lunch and traffic etc. Use Google maps to plot your itinerary and find the fastest route. This way you’ll have more time to spend at each place.
Split your itinerary
I would consider splitting your days up depending on how long you’re on the island. You don’t want to cram too much in and not get to see things properly. I would recommend breaking it down into manageable itineraries, that way you can fully appreciate the beauty of each place you visit, and actually enjoy it.
Check cruise schedule
If you’re worried about too many tourists then I would highly recommend you check the cruise ship schedule and see when they’re in port. I would then organize your itinerary around this, If a ship is in port then just have a beach day at your hotel or pick one of the great things to do above and hope for the best.
