Bermuda

One of the prettiest islands in the world

The sub-tropical island of Bermuda is unquestionably one of the world’s prettiest islands with its pink-sand paradise and turquoise coves, quaint cottages and rich colonial heritage. In fact Bermuda offers everything from designer spas and wonderful cuisine to magnificent diving opportunities including 400 historic shipwrecks and much more. The marine life is truly stunning with an abundance of fish to see when you’re snorkelling or diving or you could try your hand at fishing and see if  you can snare a prize catch.

Beaches on the island are stunning – Horseshoe Bay Beach is a particular highlight and other beaches of particular note are West Whale Bay Beach, Warwick Long Bay and Tobacco Bay Beach. Daniels Head Beach Park is a big hit with snorkellers as the calm, shallow waters allow for great viewing of angelfish and wrasse.

If you like to indulge in a little golf then Bermuda is a golfer’s heaven with 7 championship courses each offering a stunning array of challenges. If you visit during November to March, you’ll generally be blessed with perfect golfing conditions.

The capital of Hamilton has a bustling port and charming narrow streets. Make sure you take the time to find a bar with a waterfront view where you can sit and sip a dark n’ stormy – Bermuda’s national drink. You could visit the aquarium and national history museum, take in the sights and pastel coloured houses at Front Street or visit Fort Hamilton.

Nightlife is varied with everything from swanky and cosmopolitan clubs to friendly neighbourhood pubs. The ultra-exclusive Martini Bar and suave classy lounge action of the Barracuda Grill are a must.
