Bermuda Shopping and nightlife

Shopping in Bermuda

Unique local-made items, known as Bermudiana, include handcrafted gold trinkets, cedarwood gifts, perfume inspired by the island's flowers, traditional costumed dolls, rum and artwork. And of course, you can't forget the island's famous Bermuda shorts. Antique shops may have the odd good bargain and shops in the countryside offer many souvenirs. Other good buys are imported merchandise. There is no sales tax or VAT.

Shopping hours

Mon-Sat 0900-1730, with some open later and on Sundays.
