Daydreaming of your next tropical island getaway? Close your eyes and what do you see…pink sand beaches, swaying palm trees in the breeze, and pristine waters…Bermuda is just what you’re looking for.
This serenely sophisticated island has more to it than meets the eye. Delivering a year-round semi-tropical climate, this archipelago of 181 islets and islands, spans 22 miles in length and 2 miles in width, housing something for every visitor. A handsome island lined with charming pastel-coloured cottages and rocky coves, here you’ll find museums, art galleries and botanical gardens for the urban traveller, forts aplenty and the UNESCO World Heritage Site of St George’s for the history buffs, idyllic beaches for the sun worshiper and many, many golf courses for the discerning player. We haven’t forgotten the marine life enthusiasts – home to some of the world’s best dive sites, Bermuda boasts beautiful reefs and countless shipwrecks for divers and snorkellers to explore.
Offering the best of both worlds, visit Bermuda in the British winter months to enjoy milder temperatures for walking, exploring, or golfing, or in the British summer months for sun and sand. Experience raft-ups with locals, take in an exciting cricket match or watch a thrilling sailing race. No matter the time of year, you’ll be welcomed with warm smiles and a unique island vibe! And, no trip to Bermuda is complete without sampling the island’s national drink – a refreshing rum swizzle.
