Swizzle Inn

While there are several high-end cocktail spots peppered around the island, those after an authentic taster of true Bermudian aperitifs should make their way to its oldest and most famous pub – Swizzle Inn, housed in a 17th-century roadhouse in Bailey’s Bay. It was here in 1932 that Bermuda’s national drink, the Rum Swizzle, was concocted, using a potent mix of Gosling’s rum and fruit juices, shaken until frothy and strained into a cocktail glass. This lively, low-key spot is the place to discover why the Rum Swizzle remains a firm favourite, among other delicious pub-style fare.

Conservation and marine life

With its glittering expanse of flawless waters, thriving reefs and long stretches of silky sand, Bermuda is passionate about protecting and maintaining its sublime environment. To this end, there are a series of sustainable plans and conservation initiatives that support the archipelago’s surroundings and keep it thriving for years to come.
