Bermuda Tourism Authority is delighted to welcome the launch of a daily direct service from London Heathrow to Bermuda’s L.F. Wade International Airport for Spring & Summer 2023. The two additional flights will launch on 26 March 2023 and last until at least October 2023, supporting the increase in business and leisure travellers to the island during peak season.
The increased service will be the first daily flight from London to Bermuda since before the pandemic in March 2020, and will allow travellers who want to enjoy a full seven-day island escape to do so without having to cut their holiday short. This new flexible schedule invites travellers to fully immerse themselves in the beauty of the destination and the authentic experiences on offer for at least six nights, if not more.
Interim CEO at Bermuda Tourism Authority, Tracy Berkeley stated: “We want to thank British Airways for their confidence in Bermuda as a destination and providing UK visitors with more flexibility and convenience in getting here. Only a seven hour flight from London, Bermuda really is the nearest faraway place with year-round sunshine, beautiful beaches, authentic experiences and mouth watering cuisine on offer. We are beyond excited to continue showcasing our special island, inviting UK visitors to feel and experience Bermuda the way we Bermudians do”.
To celebrate the launch of the seven daily flights service, we showcase seven top experiences travellers can enjoy during a seven-day trip to beautiful Bermuda from March 2023.
Seven things to do in Bermuda next summer:
1. Explore what lies beneath in the shipwreck capital of the world
Known as the shipwreck capital of the world with more shipwrecks per square mile than anywhere else on the planet, Bermuda is home to more than 300 mysterious sunken treasures waiting to be explored. Dive in and marvel at wonders such as The Cristóbal Colón; lying scattered across 100,000 square feet of the sea floor, this astronomical site offers hours of fascinating exploration amidst the plethora of marine life.
2. Tuck into a fish sandwich
Standing as a national staple, visitors to the island will be hard pressed to find a restaurant that does not serve Bermuda’s iconic fish sandwich. The typical recipe is made up of deep-fried fillets of fish, lathered in tartar sauce and piled on top of raisin bread. The perennial menu staple can be found anywhere, from small dives to fine dining bistros, with each restaurant embellishing their version of the sandwich using a range of extra ingredients including cheese, hot sauce, salad or coleslaw. Tuck in to find your favourite take on this Bermudian classic.
3. Discover the island’s Bermudaful beaches
Step onto the infamous pink sands at Horseshoe Bay Beach – one of the world’s most Instagrammed beaches. Named for its curved shape, this popular beach flaunts Bermuda’s trademark crystal blue waters and unique pink sands, perfect for a romantic stroll or precious family time.
4. Sip on Bermuda’s national drink at The Swizzle Inn
Bermuda is known for delicious cocktails, with the most renowned being the Dark ‘n Stormy, a refreshing blend of rum and ginger beer, and the infamous Rum Swizzle, which was created in the early 1990s and pairs rum with fresh orange and pineapple juice. Head to Bermuda’s oldest pub, The Swizzle Inn for a variety of rum-infused favourites.
5. Head off-the-beaten-path to Tom Moore’s jungle
Adventure to Walsingham Nature Reserve, an explorer’s paradise with 12-acres of lush forest trails, translucent waters and subterranean caves waiting to be explored. Known locally as ‘Tom Moore’s Jungle’, this verdant reserve is home to a network of walking trails nestled into the lush landscape that lead to undisturbed wonders, including the infamous Blue Hole Park – the ultimate spot for wild cave swimming.
6. Indulge your senses at Natura Spa
Situated in a 500,000-year-old natural cave, Grotto Bay Beach Resort’s Natura Spa invites guests to indulge in soothing spa treatments in a private gazebo whilst gazing down into a shimmering azure underground lake as they take in relaxing natural sounds of dripping water and soothing soft music. Treatments available range from body wraps and massages to facials, all using only organic products like Dead Sea Salt infused with herbs and citrus essential oils.
7. Embark on a foraging tour to discover nature’s secrets
