Bermuda’s black heritage and the 200-year legacy of slavery on the island is remembered through a chain of monuments and museums. The African Diaspora Trail has a dozen points of interest throughout the island all officially designated UNESCO Slave Route Projects. Here are some of the key sights and points of interest along the trail.
With its unique combination of British, North American, West Indian, and Portuguese influences that feel by turns sophisticated and small-town, Bermuda is a paradise like another world.
There’s definitely an ephemeral, cotton candy element to the 21-square-mile island with its hallmark hue of confectionery pink that brands buses, hibiscus, cottages, and those legendary linen shorts. Arriving over impossibly turquoise bays, so translucent you can almost spot the parrotfish frolicking beneath the silky surface, is to experience a suspension of disbelief normally reserved for Hollywood make-believe. The trilling tree frogs, wobbly scooter rides, perfumed breezes, and laid-back lifestyle probably won’t do much to shatter the illusion.
Discover the charm of the island with our best of Bermuda in one week itinerary, head out for a romantic retreat, or find your adrenaline rush with the best of Bermuda’s extreme sports. And of course, there’s always the world-renowned, pristine coral-tinged beauty of the island’s many beaches.
