Why visit Bermuda in July?

 
Other than warm temperature that's great for sunning and swimming on the beaches, all water sports, boating and island tours operate in full swing in July. All tourist attractions and shops, restaurants and bars stay open during this time (only exceptions are public holidays). 
 
Towards the end of July the extremely popular Cup Match takes place over two days which is followed by the Soca and Raggae Musical Evening on the beach. Families go out for picnics to parks such as Botanical Garden that has 36 acres of lush land full of plantations and blossoming flowers, or the Arboretum that has 22 acres of serene land with meadows and nice tree shaded trails. 
 
On Wednesdays, head for Harbor Night Celebration on Front Street where large number of vendors put up stalls selling local food, snacks, artwork, trinkets and lot more. There are musical performances and Gombey dancers take to the streets showing the old traditional dance that combines the old British, African and Bermudian traditions. 
 
Try out a spa to rejuvenate yourself. One of the best options is to book a session at the Natura Spa located within an ancient natural cave in Grotto Bay Resort where the ocean water feeds the lake inside which is surrounded by stunning limestone formations. The ambience ads to the experience with its lighting system. The spa cabanas float on this water as you experience a spa of a lifetime. 
 
Go and try out one of the many island innovations in its culinary diversity. There are several authentic Bermudian dish you can try such as the Bermuda fish chowder at Lobster Pot or Hog Penny, or the Codfish breakfast at Paraquet or Buchee. But there is one thing which can't be missed in summer, and that is the fish sandwich made by Art Mel's Spicy Dicy or Rosa's (both located at Hamilton) and accompany that with a Barritt's beer. And when it comes to cocktails, you can't leave Bermuda without trying out the island drinks Rum Swizzle and Dark n' Stormy at the famous and the oldest pub of Bermuda - Swizzle Inn who invented the island cocktail Rum Swizzle. 
 
Visit Tobacco Bay Beach in St. George in the afternoon, swim and snorkel at the rock formations to view stunning marine life and then enjoy a lovely sunset on the bay while sipping a cocktail. There is bonfire right on the beach and on some days even Soca fetes. 
 
Join the party with Bermudians along with the best of local artists and performers at the Made in Bermuda Night at White's Island, a weekly event and a staple in summers (usually takes place on Fridays). White's Island is located on Hamilton Harbor. Hundreds of Bermudians and tourists join the celebration and enjoy musical performances and cocktails from 9pm to 12 mid-night. It's a great way to get an insight on Bermuda's rich tradition and culture and be able to chat with the locals. The event is usually held through July and August. 
 
Visit some of the old historic forts in St. George such as the Fort St. Catherine and the Gates Fort, wander around the old narrow streets of the town (which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site) and watch the pastel houses made with stones, you will go back by several centuries in the past.
