You don’t have to get wet to enjoy Bermuda’s ecological splendors. Jump aboard a glass-bottom boat for a cruise through reefs and sea grass beds where tropical fish like Parrotfish and Angelfish make their homes. Head up the stairs of Gibb’s Hill Lighthouse to take in stunning 360º views. Love to golf? Tee-up at The Turtle Hill Golf Club, Port Royal Golf Club, or Ocean View Golf Course.
