Let’s mix a bit of adventure, with nature’s mesmerising wonders, and relaxation... All at once! If you think this combination is impossible, just keep reading!
The world is full of magnificent mysteries and wonders that sometimes present themselves in very unexpected ways, and the Crystal Caves in Bermuda is no exception to that. Located in the western North Atlantic Ocean, the Bermuda island is an out-of-a-movie experience, with tropical jungles, crystal blue waters, blush pink sands, and of course, the Crystal Caves.
Cave Into the Nature’s Effortless Beauty Picture it: As you are walking over a wooden, vintage-style bridge, you are surrounded by white, crystalised stalactites clinging effortlessly to the ceilings and illuminated by warm lights scattered around the minuscule, yet breathtaking cave. As you look down, you are simply mesmerised by a lake that flows quietly in a hypnotic colour mix of marine blue and deep green, the water is so clear that you can see straight down to the bottom. We know, it sounds like a scenario right out of a movie scene, but that is exactly what you will find in the Crystal Caves.
The Backstory is Pretty Awesome too! This majestic cave is believed to have been formed during the Pleistocene Ice Age, and is considered 1.6 millions of years old, pretty cool? We were stunned to hear that too! However, the cave was not discovered until 1907 by two Bermudian teenagers, Carl Gibbons and Edgar Hollins who found the cave by pure luck. While playing cricket, Edgar tossed the pitch too high, and as Carl ran after it, he noticed a small, strange hole emitting warm, subtle air. The friends became curious and decided to explore the mysterious hole, what they eventually discovered is now one of Bermuda's true hidden treasures.
Take Relaxation to a Whole New Level Wait! If you thought that was the end of the experience, well, there is more! If you are heading off for a romantic retreat, or want to relax and rejuvenate during your extraordinary trip, we recommend trying the cave spa experience. The Natura Spa offers a menu of facials, body wraps and messages using organic and natural products, while being surrounded by Bermuda’s enchanting, natural wonder in the most peaceful and quiet atmosphere. Those who gave into the spa experience say ‘if it isn’t on your bucket list, it should be!’’ After all, you have to spoil yourself from time to time right? So why not just go all in!
Ps. Although you cannot swim in the Crystal Cave, you can take a dip in the Cathedral Cave, located right next to the Crystal Cave.
So here it is, one spectacular cave of relaxing, enchanting and curious nature. If it wasn't in your bucket list before, what are you waiting for? It is simply unmissable, and not to mention, very picture-worthy.
