Beaches (keep in mind many suffered from the hurricane). St Georges has several
popular beaches. Tobacco Bay and St Catherines have facilities, Achilles Bay (just the other side of Ft StCatherines FroM St Catherines beach) is a bit more private . From Hamilton, Horeshoe Bay (most famous, full facilities) or any other beaches along that stretch. Aquarium and Botanical Gardens are closed from the hurricane. There is nice shopping in all 3 ports and evenings in the pubs in Hamilton and St Georges is a must
do. There is a nice glass bottom boat tour in St Georges and several operators offer snorkel tours. My personal favorate is Jessie James in Hamilton. An evening carraige ride in Hamilton is fun (and romantic). Wait until evening to do this , you go 3x as far in a half hour when not in traffic. There is Crystal cave to visit and I believe many of the golf courses are up and running again. Use buses and ferries for transportation. They are safe , cheap and reliable. Multi ride and multi day passes are available.
Have fun , keep an open mind, these folks just survived a very devestating hurricane.

really nothing more to add. We love Horseshoe Bay , just wandering around downtown Hamilton. St. George is very interesting. The caves are fun, and the gardens are just beautiful. Most of the nightlife is centered around the big hotels, especially in Southampton. The transit system in Bermuda is great and cheap.
