  • Warwick Long Bay: This stretch of pristine pink sand is a dream beach of the picture-postcard variety. It backs up to towering cliffs and hills studded with Spanish bayonet and oleander. A 6m-high (20-ft.) coral outcrop, rising some 60m (200 ft.) offshore and resembling a sculpted boulder, adds variety to the stunning beachscape.
  • Scaur Hill Fort Park: From Somerset Bridge in Sandys Parish, head for this fort atop the parish's highest hill. Walk the fort's ramparts, enjoying the vistas across Great Sound to Spanish Point. You can also gaze north to the dockyard and take in the fine views of Somerset Island. On a clear day, a look through the telescope reveals St. David's Lighthouse, 23km (14 miles) away on the northeastern tip of the island. After enjoying the fantastic views from the fort, you can stroll through the fort's 9 hectares (22 acres) of beautiful gardens.
  • Gibbs Hill Lighthouse: For an even better view than the one enjoyed by Queen Elizabeth II when she visited but did not climb the lighthouse in 1953, hike the 185 spiral steps to the top. Built in 1846, it's the oldest cast-iron lighthouse in the world. From the top, you can relish what islanders consider the single finest view in all of Bermuda -- a panorama of the island and its shorelines. In heavy winds, the tower actually sways, so be sure to hang on to the railing when you're up there.
