Getting active isn’t difficult in Bermuda. Whether you want to get involved or are just interested in being a spectator, there are a variety of popular activities — including golf, horseback riding, running, cycling and tennis — to try out. For avid golfers, Bermuda is paradise. With a large percentage of open land made up of several challenging courses, you’ll never have a dull game. Most of the courses also feature the spectacular views of the various blues of the ocean.
You can also get the whole family putting a round at fun miniature golf establishments in Royal Naval Dockyard or Southampton, or even practice your techniques at a driving range. To take in the entire island, a bicycle is a great way to get around and explore some of the smaller tucked-away roads. It is a particularly scenic way to take in The Bermuda Railway Trail, which is limited to pedestrian and bicycle traffic only, and extends much of the island.
There are also several bike tours available. Another great way to see the island at a bit of a slower pace is on the back of a horse. Tours in St. George’s take in scenic coastal areas as well as beaches.
Running is a popular pursuit on the island, which is evidenced in the many races held throughout the running season from September to June. Bermuda makes a pretty breathtaking location for picturesque runs, and international runners head to the island in January for the Bermuda Marathon Weekend. If you’re really looking for a challenge, try out the three races in three days with the Bermuda Triangle Challenge, which incorporates the mile, a 10K and either the half or full marathon.
