Since the America’s Cup was raced here in 2017 Bermuda has flourished and is now rated as a premiere yachting destination. It is a very beautiful place very much influenced by its long colonial past. Pastel coloured mansions and whitewashed cottages shine amongst swaying palms, fragrant frangipani and colourful bougainvillea, while the warm crystal-clear turquoise seas are fringed with soft white and pink sand beaches, and the sky is wall-to-wall blue.
Located North East of the Bahamas in the Sargasso Sea this tropical haven is a hook shaped group of atolls joined by bridges and embankments creating a 22-mile-long island. In total Bermuda consists of only 21 square miles making it one of the tiniest territories in the world. While not part of the Caribbean Bermuda shares similar year-long warm even temperatures reaching mid-thirties (86°F) in the summer and dropping to mid-twenties (68°F) in the winter.
The island was originally uninhabited with the first British being shipwrecked there in 1609. Bermuda became a British colony in 1684 and this British involvement can be seen by the many naval forts and gun emplacements dotted all around the island. It is however much more diverse than that with African, Portuguese, West Indian and North American influences creating a rare cultural mix of laid-back and friendly locals.
These scattered islands provide some spectacular secluded beaches that are postcard perfect, and perfect for those who prefer privacy to people.
With dive sites that take in colourful coral reefs and a fascinating choice of wrecks there is something for all abilities here. Whether you are a snorkeller or a scuba diver the underwater world here has fantastic fauna and there’s every chance you will get close and personal with manta rays, sea turtles or dolphins.
With friendly tax and banking laws Bermuda is also home to some very wealthy people and with that comes an array of gorgeous shops and boutiques, five-star dining restaurants and bars, and luxury spas and resorts. Bermuda is also blessed with a choice of fine museums and extraordinary art galleries.
