Paddling Around Bermuda

It’s August and the heat in Bermuda is in full force right now.  I’m always trying to get in or on the water whenever I have a spare chance.  When I moved back to Bermuda I realized that paddle boarding was becoming more and more popular.  At first I figured I already have way too many hippy activities and it would be best not to add another – can always add more.

So I tried out paddle boarding for the first time in a while and I absolutely love it.  It’s an amazing way to see the island and provide a unique perspective on it’s beauty.  I saved some money and got myself an inflatable SUP board by Caribe Sup.  They are an amazing brand with beautiful inflatable boards.  Of course I fell in love with the bright pink color and am now a proud owner of a hot pink board.  If you want to try out paddle boarding, then I would highly recommend going to SurfSup Bermuda.  It’s located at Daniel’s Head Beach in Somerset and is home to abandoned beach huts that were once part of a hotel.  The huts provide a cool backdrop and are an interesting place to explore.  You can rent paddle boards (along with snorkel equipment, kite boards and other things).  The cove is tucked away so it’s usually calm, which makes for great conditions to try out paddle boarding.  There’s a beautiful bay where young turtles like to explore and if you paddle around you can usually see them pop their heads out of the water.
