Chilled Island Vibe
If you want a vacation that’s relaxed, and will leave you feeling rejuvenated, then you will love Bermuda. Escape the daily grind, unplug your devices, and just soak up the stunning scenery, beautiful hotels and restaurants, and slow pace of life here.
The food (and drink) scene
The food is as fresh as it gets, and whether you love seafood or not, there’s so much delicious food on offer. Bermuda has some of the world’s most prestigious restaurants and delicious local eateries.
Naturally, many of the restaurants are right on the beach or have beautiful views of the island as well. It’s like eating in paradise everywhere you go.
Stunning Beaches & Pink Sand
Bermuda is known for its absolutely stunning beaches. In fact, Bermuda beaches are ranked among the best beaches in the world.
The exquisitely fine sand which feels like flour under your feet is set against a backdrop of pretty turquoise waters. From bright white sand to luxurious pink hues, I’ve never experienced anything quite like the beaches of Bermuda.
Out of the many cave systems on the island of Bermuda, the Crystal Caves is one of the largest. It is 120 feet underground and simply breathtaking to see.
You will descend into an underground passage of natural beauty to a pontoon bridge that spans a crystal clear emerald lake called the Cahow Lake. Its crystal clear depth is 17M/55FT.
Stalagmites below the water appear to be just under the water’s service, and crystal-encrusted stalactites hang from the roof of the cave. It will leave you in awe.
Interesting History & Heritage
Bermuda is a British-owned colony with a rich history, and there are tons of heritage sites and interesting places to visit on the island.
The Royal Naval Dockyard, National Museum of Bermuda, and the Forts are all must-see to learn about the island’s maritime history.
Bermuda is a really beautiful island, and there is pretty architecture everywhere. Travelling around the island you will see lots of impressive houses and buildings, and some of them were built as far back as the 1600’s.
Historic St George
When you visit St George, it is like stepping back in time. This charming UNESCO-designated town with its crooked cobblestone lanes, colonial architecture, and inviting shops and pubs is steeped in 400 years of history.
The oldest continuously operating church in the Western Hemisphere, St. Peter’s Church in St. George was completed in 1612.
Ok, I know that you can experience sunsets anywhere in the world, but there is just something about Bermuda’s island sunsets that is really special.
The Railway Trail
Following an abandoned rail bed that winds through tranquil landscapes and along stunning rocky coastlines, the Railway Trail in Bermuda allows you to hike or bike the entire island from one end to the other. It’s a must-do if you visit the island.
Get off the beaten path and enjoy the stunning scenery from the coastline to the countryside with the smells and sounds of nature. It’s the best way to see the island’s varied landscapes.
Scuba Diving & Snorkelling
Bermuda is full of shipwrecks, coral reefs, caves, and an abundance of marine life in warm, crystal-clear waters so it’s an ideal spot for underwater exploration.
It’s estimated that there are about 300 shipwrecks to be found abandoned all around the island, which attracts a veritable aquatic world of marine life in living technicolour. Popular wreck sites include Constellation, Hermes, and Marie Celeste.
Church Bay is also a favorite location for snorkeling as it offers shallow reef areas close to shore filled with colorful tropical fish.
World Class Spas
A lot of the Spa’s in Bermuda are in stunning natural surroundings. Would you like a hot massage in a cool cave surrounded by underground pools or a massage overlooking the ocean with the sound of the waves lapping the shore? It really is the ultimate in relaxation and rejuvenation.
Golf With A View
If golf is more your thing, then Bermuda is a golfer’s paradise. This little island has more golf courses per capita than anywhere else in the world with golf courses covering approximately 17% of the island.
All of these golf courses have been designed by the world’s foremost golf architects and professional golfers with picturesque ocean views.
These are just a few of the many reasons to add Bermuda to your travel bucket list. It is a truly unique and incredibly beautiful island that offers something for everyone.
