Located at the far Eastern tip of Bermuda, Blackbeard’s Hideout has an open-air island vibe mixed with the flavours and atmosphere of an island-style beach bar.
This local hideaway has recently gone back to its roots, offering local island dishes cooked to your liking. Atop the list are the famous Cannonballs, which are scallops wrapped in bacon and drizzled with garlic butter, named due to Blackbeard’s proximity to Fort St. Catherine. Fresh fish and island specialties rank high on the list as well. Vegetarians, vegans and gluten free customers will find plenty to choose from with options such as cauliflower tacos and chickpea potato curry.
Located at the edge of a quiet, secluded cove, Blackbeard’s Hideout has been a place for locals and visitors to escape and hide out at the far east end of the island. The restaurant is filled with natural light, thanks to its numerous sliding glass doors and spacious balcony. During the day, the space is cool, casual and relaxed. Servers deliver simple and delicious dishes tableside while guests appreciate the stunning ocean view and passing boats. However, if you come for the day, you’ll stay for the sunset! All eyes are drawn towards the horizon as the sky transforms into a magical kaleidoscope of fiery oranges, rosy pinks and deep purples, with each guest straining to catch the green flash.
Choose from a full selection of mixed beverages and cold beers while enjoying an al fresco lunch or refreshing early dinner. After your meal, take a stroll through the gently lapping waves, located just a few steps below the main restaurant. And, if you’re feeling adventurous or are traveling with kids, be sure to ask about their watersport rentals; the gently sloping beach and sheltered turquoise waters are ideal for swimming, and you can experience some of the best snorkeling just off the beach, among the rock formations of Achilles’ Bay.
Sunday mornings are a local favourite for a leisurely breakfast leading into an afternoon BBQ on the grass outside, where music gives a relaxing vibe to the restaurant and the bay.
If you’re visiting the island and are planning a day trip to St. George’s, be sure to include Blackbeard’s Hideout in your itinerary. Fort St. Catherine is part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site and is a famous tourist attraction. The historic fort, crenellations, ramparts, naval cannons, and museum make for a fun pre- or post-lunch jaunt.
