Bermuda is an overseas territory of the UK located in the Atlantic Ocean around 650 miles off the East Coast of the United States. Famous for its pink sand beaches, Bermuda’s Horseshoe Bay is one of its most popular beaches. The bay is perfect for snorkeling as well as providing access to a broad range of water sports including sailing, parasailing, fishing, and water skiing.
If you get tired of the beach there are plenty of other things to do on the island. The popular Crystal Caves are well worth a visit. Here you descend over 100 feet underground through caves and caverns to admire the stalactites, stalagmites and dramatic rock formations. Bermuda is also great for golf with one of the highest concentration of golf courses per square mile in the world. All of them are a great test of skill with some fabulous 19th holes to throw back some cold ones. A trip to Hamilton, the island`s main town is always a good hunting ground for serious shoppers. Start the day with coffee and pastries before strolling around the boutique and specialty shops that dot the town, especially along the sea beautiful front.
Another popular attraction on the island is the Royal Naval Dockyard. You’ll see the world’s first iron house, the Bermuda Maritime Museum and the old ramparts and cannon that make up Bermuda`s fortress. This is a great place for kids wanting a break from the beach who will be well entertained with tales of pirates and sea battles. The Dockyard too contains many fine shops and boutiques and shopping is another popular pastime here.
The island is a great place for foodies with restaurants to suit all tastes and budgets. Bermudian cuisine blends the flavors of West Africa, Asia, India and the Portuguese Azores to create dishes that are distinctly Bermudian. The island specialty is a robust, tomato-based, spicy fish chowder with a prodigious list of ingredients. Island Cuisine in Southampton specializes in affordably priced, great-tasting, local Bermudian home-style dishes. And to taste some of the island`s specialty fish dishes The Lobster Pot and Boathouse Bar has a great reputation with local and visiting foodies. And for that special occasion try Bermuda`s premier dining spot, the Newport Room, an AAA Five Diamond award-winning restaurant at The Fairmont Southampton. Its exquisite French-inspired cuisine is not to be missed.
Accommodations on the island are outstanding with a wide variety of resort hotels, villas, boutique & cottage properties to suit everyone. The Fairmont Hotels in Southampton and Hamilton offer undiluted luxury and are perfect for those who want to be seriously pampered. More modestly, Aunt Nea`s Inn at Hillcrest in historic St George`s is a very romantic inn. Or for a more intimate bed and breakfast type holiday, the Granaway Guest House & Cottage in Warwick Parish was built in 1734 with terrific views of the Great Sound.
