Family Fun in Bermuda

A family vacation can easily become hard work when you have to think about accommodating everyone’s interests. But the following suggestions should silence the whining as you experience Family Fun in Bermuda!

Experience Harbour Nights

There’s much more to Harbour Nights than dancing Gombeys and vendors selling their crafts. Zip-lining, assorted fun-castles, face-painting, and mini donuts are just a few of the highlights in store for kids at this weekly street festival on Hamilton’s Front Street. It happens every Wednesday evening until September 4, 2019, and while you watch the kids enjoy themselves you can sip on a Dark & Stormy and soak up the positive vibes all around.

Splash around at Dolphin Quest

The friendly dolphins at Dolphin Quest love to show off.  Stop by and watch them frolic in their oversized swimming sanctuary with your admission into the National Museum of Bermuda in Dockyard. Why not Book a special encounter that is sure to give your child the memory of a lifetime. Children as young as 3 years old can interact with the dolphins, by feeding, touching and even stealing a kiss! You and your older kids can swim with the dolphins as well during a special encounter. Whether or not you get into the water, just watching them swim, jump and splash around will entertain the whole family.

Take the ferry from Hamilton or Bus no. 7 or 8.

Picnic, Swim + Play

Low tide beaches like this one in Hamilton Parish are great for small children. Shelly Bay has shallow crystal clear waters that extend for nearly half a mile before getting deep, perfect for little ones who are still learning how to swim. There’s also a large playground and park right behind the beach with some nice shaded areas provided by trees.

Pizza + Ice Cream & Swizzle?

Pit stops are essential to keep the kiddos smiling. On your way to and from sightseeing, stop for a slice at Pizza House in Shelly Bay Plaza located on the main road between the Aquarium and Bailey’s Ice Cream Parlour. Key word here is Ice Cream and Bailey’s Bay has some amazing flavours. Across the street is Swizzle Inn, the iconic pub style restaurant (kid friendly) that serves Bermuda’s famous Rum Swizzle.

Simply Explore

In reality, kids just wanna play and all that’s needed to keep them content is nature and their imagination.  Visit one of our historic forts, Fort St. Catherine in St. George’s (Take Bus 10 or 11 operating between Hamilton and St. George’s) or Fort Hamilton in Pembroke (from Front Street walk towards east and take left towards King Street. Walk up the steep incline of King Street and turn right to Happy Valley Road) Fort Hamilton will be on your right and let them pretend to be pirates or naval soldiers. Or, spend sometime exploring the island’s lush parks and nature reserves, we recommend Botanical Gardens, Spittal Pond or Tom Moore’s Jungle and Blue Hole Hill Park where they can run, jump and scour the grounds for trinkets and treasures.
