Bermuda - An island with so many shades of blue, and gorgeous pink sand beaches
Bermuda is located approximately 570 miles off the coast of North Carolina. Bermuda is not technically in the Caribbean as it sits directly in the Atlantic ocean.
Why is Bermuda included in our Caribbean site?
The island fits our ideal island paradise. You'll find miles of fabulous pink sand beaches, palm trees, crystal clear water, very polite/hospitable locals, plenty of activities/things to do, and last but
not least - the island is extremely clean. Sounds like the Caribbean!
Bermuda is also a divers paradise with a variety of marine and coral life, unique underwater caves, and shipwrecks.
Bermuda can best be described as a "sub-tropical" island. Warm weather prevails from early May through early October, and the remaining months are quite cool.
Bermuda is so unique . . . .
The architecture is Mediterranean, the culture is very British, and African influence can be found in the local folk music.
Car rental is forbidden, so visitors rent scooters, use the ferry or bus system. Taxis are available, however they are expensive. Just about everything stops on the island for late afternoon tea.
The typical Caribbean island is tropical, however Bermuda's weather can best be described as "sub-tropical" - It is quite warm from May through early October, and the remaining months can be quite cool - not exactly the best beach weather. It should be noted that the warmer months are the most expensive.
The local dress for businessmen is a suit coat and Bermuda shorts.
Another pleasant surprise is the rainbow of colors that meet your eye at every turn - pastel shades of pinks, greens, coral - and every possible shade of blue you can imagine.
Points of interest are the historic town of St. George, along with the Capital city Hamilton. Tennis, golf, sailing and horseback riding are among the favorite pastimes on the island - aside from lounging on the pink sand beaches.
The Botanical Gardens are definitely worth a tour if you like exotic plants. The historic Royal Naval Dockyard is a must for the list of things to do.
And a visit would not be complete without experiencing the music and dance of the Gombey, a combination of British and West African influences. The island also offers aquariums, museums, caves, many historic sites, and nature reserves.
If you're looking for a "different" island destination that's not technically in the Caribbean, but close to the U.S., give Bermuda a try! Those pink sand beaches, and the scenic rainbow of colors will be long remembered.
