Long Way to Go
If you want to swim away from the crowd, at Warwick Long Bay you'll find a quiet, half-mile stretch of rosy sand (the longest on the island) against a backdrop of scrubland and low grasses. Less than 200 feet offshore, a jagged coral island appears to float above the water. This secluded beach is perfect for morning yoga, romantic picnics or long strolls. There are no facilities, rentals or lifeguards on duty, but if you're looking for solitude and relaxation, you'll certainly find it here.
St. George's Fire
Built in 1614, Fort St. Catherine in St. George's is one of Bermuda's oldest forts and most impressive structures. As the spot where Bermuda's first settlers came ashore, Fort St. Catherine is a wonderful site to learn about the island's colorful history and see replicas of the British crown jewels, guarded by a wax-figured Beefeater. The Fort also houses an interesting collection of antique guns and weapons.
One of Bermuda's best kept secrets, Heydon Trust Chapel is also its smallest chapel. Dating from the early 1600s, this historic chapel can be found at Heydon Trust, a bucolic, 43-acre preserve graced by rose gardens, stately Bermuda cedars and olivewood trees. Nuns perform inspirational Gregorian chants in the chapel Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays at 7:30 a.m., Wednesdays and Saturdays at 8:30 a.m. and Monday through Saturday at 3:00 p.m. Admission is free. Open daily from dawn till dusk.
