Bermuda’s beaches are legendary, but beyond the pink sand, you will find a mid-Atlantic island packed with experiences you won’t find anywhere else in the world. Whether you are exploring an oceanside trail or immersed in a spa treatment at a world-class spa, Bermuda offers many ways to unwind and unplug from the everyday.
Looking to revitalize, rejuvenate, and renew? Here are a handful of spots in Bermuda that let you really escape. They’ll get you off the beaten path for peace, quiet, and plenty of natural beauty.
The Spa at Elbow Beach Bermuda Resort
The Spa at Elbow Beach is an intimate, oceanfront retreat designed to infuse romance and peacefulness with a dash of the exotic. Rejuvenation of body and mind begins the very moment you enter the spa. Light ocean breezes wash over you, carrying subtle hints of natural herbs and fragrant spices. The on-site wellness centre at the Elbow Beach Bermuda resort has peaceful, sanctuary-like suites with large granite baths and showers lined with river stones.
They believe that the sea holds miraculous power to cleanse and their distinctive, individual spa suites blend island and Asian influences to create a private haven in which to enjoy an array of unique treatments. Soak in the intimate atmosphere and enjoy the Rum Swizzle Ritual, named for Bermuda’s signature cocktail. It includes a welcoming foot ritual, body scrub, bath and a full body and scalp massage – and your very own Rum Swizzle, of course.
Astwood Cove Beach
You’ll have to hike a bit to get to this secluded spot, but it’s worth it. Astwood Cove is one of the most stunningly beautiful beaches in Warwick Parish. It is small but once you’ve made it, you’ll be greeted with one of Bermuda’s most visually impressive and least-crowded beaches. It’s the perfect romantic beach and ideal for couples. During summer when most of the beaches in Bermuda get crowded, Astwood Cove can give you the privacy and seclusion that you might be looking for. Stretch out on the sand, close your eyes, and listen to the gentle waves rolling in. You’ll feel like you’re a world away from everyone and everything.
Experience Stand-Up Paddle (SUP) Yoga
Namaste – with a twist! Maybe you have done a little yoga. Maybe you’ve done a little paddle boarding. But the odds are good that you have never done both at the same time. Yoga on the water is an experience like no other! Bermuda’s Yoga with Tali offers hour-long practices out on the water aboard a stand-up paddleboard (SUP) at the beautiful location in Harrington Sound on Trunk Island. Enjoy a calming practice that requires deep focus and an open mind. It is the perfect path to inner peace.
