Bermuda

Just 90 minutes by flight from New York City, this tiny island nation has the prettiest water and finest sand in all the Caribbean (and perhaps the world, wethinks!). Journey to Bermuda for its the natural beauty and laid-back, island lifestyle.

There are no rental cars on the island and cabs are expensive. The best and easiest way to get around is by electric scooter. Spend your days beach hopping all along the island.

EAT

Bailey’s Bay Ice Cream Parlour Quaint ice cream joint near the Crystal Caves.

Barracuda Grill Posh seafood and steak joint in Hamilton.

Bermuda Rum and Cake Company Bermuda is well known for its rum cake. Pick up a few goodies from the Royal Naval Dockyard location.

Frog and Onion Pub English-style pub in the Royal Naval Dockyard.

Wahoo’s Bistro and Patio Excellent fresh fish in St. George’s.

DRINK

Gombey’s Bar Beachy dive bar at Clearwater Beach.

The Swizzle Inn A historic tavern that claims to be Bermuda’s oldest pub. Good food too! Try the signature Rum Sizzle drink.

PLAY

Clearwater Beach Our favorite beach in Bermuda. Far from tourists on the northeast side of the island, and oh so blue.

Crystal and Fantasy Caves Book a guided tour to the underground caves. Lots of opportunities for rock jumping.

Elbow Beach Lovely beach on the south shore.

Horseshoe Bay Beach This pink sand beach on the southern shore is consistently ranked one of the most beautiful beaches in the world.

Tobacco Bay Beach A small beach cove off the tourist track in St. George’s. Wander through the rock pools nearby.

STAY

Looking to splash out? The Fairmont Hamilton Princess and Beach Club in Hamilton is pure luxury. Its beach club on the southern shore is a gorgeously calm and private bay.

For the budget-minded, or those simply looking for a more authentic experience, we recommend a quiet serviced apartment or AirBnb with a view on the North Shore Road cliffs. You’ll be well away from the cruise ships in Kings Wharf and tourist resorts in Hamilton and the south shore.
