Strolling Bermuda's Pink Sands -- The pink sand beaches are reason enough to come to Bermuda. Find your favorite cove (perhaps Whale Bay, Astwood Cove, or Jobson's Cove) and stroll aimlessly at dawn, at twilight, or whenever your fancy dictates.

Cycling -- On a rented bicycle, or maybe a moped built for two, explore Bermuda from end to end. Start in St. George in the East End and go all the way to the Royal Naval Dockyard in the West End, or vice versa. You can do this in 1 day or stretch it out.

Touring the Commissioner's House at the Royal Naval Dockyard -- Around 1850, it was the most visible symbol in the mid-Atlantic of the Imperial power of the British Navy. After the turn of the millennium, it was majestically restored from a dilapidated ruin into a glowing memorial to another age and time.

Visiting the Bermuda Masterworks Collection in the Botanical Gardens -- A source of enormous civic pride, it contains the largest assortment of Bermudian and Bermuda-inspired artwork in the world -- proof positive that lots of other artistically sensitive people have loved the island as much as we do.

Following the Bermuda Railway Trail -- As you follow this intermittent trail from one end of the island to the other, you'll take in panoramic seascapes, see exotic flora and fauna, hear the soothing sounds of the island's bird life, and often have long stretches of trail completely to yourself.

Viewing Bermuda from Gibbs Hill Lighthouse -- Climb the 185 steps of the oldest cast-iron lighthouse in the world for one of the greatest views of the Atlantic Ocean. Springtime visitors may be lucky enough to see migrating whales beyond the shore reefs.
