1. Paddle To Paradise

For just $30/hour ($15 per each additional hour) rent a paddle board or a few from Blue Hole Watersports and plan a day explore Castle Harbour and its islands, one of the most scenic forms of paradise in the world. This is a popular spot for locals especially on the weekends where you will find boats rafted up, a small beach cluttered with kids playing, adventure seekers cliff jumping and some of the most beautiful snorkelling spots around the island. The closest grocery stores are Market Place in Shelly Bay or Somers Supermart in St. George’s where you can pick up a few things to make a light picnic.

3. Hit The Water Park in Dockyard!!

Have you checked out the Longtail Floating Fun Park lately? They have a large water slide, as well as a floating obstacle course and a diving board from the 3rd deck! Longtail is open every day from 10:00-6:00 – tickets can be booked at @islandtourcenterbermuda for $27.50 or call 441-232-KIRK for more information! After you’ve soaked up enough sun and ocean, visit Cafe Amici for lunch! You’ll find them on the corner of the Clock Tower Mall. They have the best pizza in Dockyard and a great patio.  A perfect spot for the whole family.

4. Play Hide & Seek At The Unfinished Church, Then Take A Dip Near By At Tobacco Bay

The impressive Gothic vestige that looms over the town of St. George’s was begun in 1870 as a replacement for St. Peter’s, which had fallen into a state of serious disrepair. Designed by William Hay, the Scottish-born architect who later drew the plans for Hamilton’s cathedral, the St. George’s church was abandoned in 1899 when near completion. After your exploring adventures head to Tobacco Bay for a swim and late lunch or just a few summer cocktails with your toes in the sand!

Bus Routes 1, 3, 10 and 11 that operate between Hamilton and St. George’s.
