SHOPPING

There’s No Doubt About It

Bermuda’s idyllic location and stylish finds make it a retail paradise, where you’ll find everything you are looking for — and more.

When you think about a shopping destination, big cities like New York, London or Paris come to mind. But with coastally curated, pink sand–inspired shopping, Bermuda has them beat. Even if you don’t intend to do more than window-shop, you’re likely to end up making a purchase — or a few — here.

Bermuda has various shopping districts from Royal Naval Dockyard in the West end to the Town of St. George in the East, One of the heaviest concentration of stores is in the City of Hamilton. It’s here where you’ll find the iconic candy-coloured buildings Bermuda is known for. Luxury brands and local favourites dot the Hamilton Harbour — and you’ll be sure to find something that suits your fancy.

If your goal is gathering great gifts for loved ones, you’ll find them in an array of outlets, ranging from smaller personalised speciality shops to bigger department stores. Some of the standout items that can be found in Hamilton include Wedgwood china and Baccarat crystal, local clothing brands, leather goods, perfumes, Irish linens and even locally made art and jewellery
