In Bermuda, there are three categories of fishing: reef fishing, deep-sea fishing, and fishing from the shore. Game fishermen will find the largest sea quarry, like the blue marlin, swim in deeper waters. Near the coral reefs that surround the island, anglers can fish for challenging saltwater game fish such as the snapper and barracuda, which will test the skills of even the most seasoned fisherman. There are three reefs bordering Bermuda's coast. Two of the coral reefs are close to shore while the third is located as far as 30 miles off of the coast. For land-loving vacationers who still want to get in on some fishing action, shore fishing is the way to go. You can cast off from one of the many docks and harbors on Bermuda. Fishing off of the docks won't bring you large catches, but shore fishermen can still hook medium-sized fish.
Deep Sea Fishing is a popular sport in this area, as indicated by the presence of 15 charter fishing services that operate from this area. To get more information on deep sea fishing in this area, read this article.
The greens on the island of Bermuda are unlike any other golf courses in the world. Golfing on Bermuda is a pastime enjoyed by many vacationers visiting the island. The courses are designed to be short yet challenging, so even the most experienced golfer will be able to test his or her skills. Another unique feature of the golf courses on Bermuda is that the ground they're built on is firmer than most other courses. Some golfers may have to adjust their style of play for this kind of terrain. Also, Bermuda is a hilly island, so many of the golf courses have elevated areas, which may also affect how the game is played.

Some of the courses on the island are private and can only be accessed by members of the golf club and their guests. These exclusive golf facilities are often frequented by celebrities and other elite golfers.
