Bermuda makes a wonderful destination for those seeking a restful, sophisticated beach retreat. This cluster of islets in the middle of the North Atlantic offers a true sense of seclusion and escapism. Its famously pink-tinted beaches are second-to-none, and there is a wide range of accommodation on offer, from affordable family-friendly retreats to chic resorts that ooze five-star appeal.
Warmed by the temperate Gulf Stream, Bermuda has a pleasant subtropical climate, so you can expect sunshine and warm waters all throughout the year. An abundance of unspoilt beaches is the archipelago’s main draw; however, Bermuda also offers some fascinating historical sites. As the oldest British Overseas Territory, it has a rich colonial history. This is best experienced in the UNESCO-listed town of St George, and in the island’s vibrant capital, Hamilton. Explore historic forts, informative museums, and take advantage of the many great restaurants and cafes.
Activities to enjoy in Bermuda include swimming, snorkelling and diving from the island’s picturesque sandy beaches and rocky coves. Golf enthusiasts are well catered for here; the archipelago boasts more golf courses per square mile than anywhere else in the world. Visitors can spot wildlife on Cooper’s Island Nature Reserve, a 77-acre haven of pristine beaches, salt marshes and rocky shorelines.
