Free And Affordable Things To Do: Planning a trip to Bermuda? Lucky duck! Bermuda is one of the world’s most beautiful vacation destinations, and one of the most affordable if you play your cards right. In fact, one of the easiest ways to save money in Bermuda is by indulging in all of the free things to do! Seriously, it’s possible to have a blast in Bermuda without spending a dime. Just take a look at the list of all the free and affordable things to do in Bermuda below.
Ride The SeaExpress Around The Island
One of the best ways to explore Bermuda is to do it by the sea! The small ferry service transports residents and tourists from one side of the island to the other, making four stops along the way. Though the ride isn’t free, it only costs $5 and you will marvel at the beauty the entire way. The water is so gorgeous that you may even just be tempted to jump overboard.

Watch The Sunset At Daniel’s Head Park
Daniels’ Head Park has some of the most beautiful beaches on the entire island, and it’s one of the best places to catch a beautiful sunset. Head out early to save a spot and bring dinner with you. The relaxing atmosphere combined with the sand between your toes will make for an epic evening. The best part? This is a completely free activity and one of the great things to do in Bermuda.
Visit Gigg’s Hill Lighthouse
And climb alllll the way to the top, of course. It’s only 186 steps! But all joking aside, this gorgeous lighthouse is a must-see. Built in 1844, Gigg’s Hill is the tallest lighthouse on the entire island of Bermuda and made entirely of cast iron. Not only that, but it’s home to some of the most gorgeous views on the entire island. Fortunately, there’s a small cafe at the bottom to feed hungry adventurers when you’ve climbed the steps back down. It’s $2.50 per person for admission, and children under five are free so this is definitely an affordable activity for families.
Head to Spittal Pond to see tons of wildlife as it is a 64-acre nature preserve. Admission is completely free, and mass numbers of birds are set to flock to the area during certain times of the year. Get lost wandering the paths, or sit on a bench and just watch the passing scenery. Vacations are supposed to be relaxing, remember? This was one of my favorite things to do in Bermuda.
Learn About The Bermuda Triangle
Well, I mean you’re here aren’t you? May as well make it educational! Head to The Bermuda Underwater Exploration Institute to learn about all things involving the triangle. There are incredible items salvaged from shipwrecks and tons of materials discussing the aspects of the supposedly “paranormal” area of the ocean. It’s a bit more expensive, with ticket prices ranging from $8-$15 per person, but it’s a fun place to stop and see. Plus, who doesn’t like to immerse themselves in spooky things like the triangle?
Explore Gate’s Bay
Gate’s Bay was where the British began colonizing in Bermuda, and you can definitely see their influence. The streets are still cobblestoned, so make sure you wear the appropriate footwear!
