With its pink sands and golden sunsets, Bermuda is one of the world’s truly undiscovered treasures. What’s more, this island paradise, which is only 21 miles long and lies in the middle of the North Atlantic, will play host to the 35th America’s Cup next summer after seeing off stiff competition from New York and San Francisco.
So, what better time to arrange a combined visit to see the world’s elite sailors up close and discover Bermuda’s enchanted shores?
With its mix of British, American, and Afro-Caribbean culture and tradition, Bermuda makes for a culturally rich holiday destination.
There’s plenty to do from sailing in its turquoise waters and playing a round on one of its seven golf courses to relaxing or fine dining at one of its many high-end restaurants.
Aside from its immediate charm, Bermuda also has some well-kept secrets including old smugglers’ coves, underground caves, and wild nature trails just waiting to be discovered.
Places to visit
The capital Hamilton is a good base to explore the rest of the island with its array of art galleries, parks, and cathedrals.
Among the pick is the splendid Bermuda Gallery at City Hall & Arts Centre, Sessions House, where the House of Assembly sits, and Fort Hamilton, from where you can get the best views of the city.
Outside the city, the Botanical Gardens offer some respite from the hustle and bustle of the capital. Within its grounds, Camden House, the official residence of Bermuda’s Premier, and the Masterworks Museum of Bermuda Art, home to more than 1,200 exhibits, are also well worth a visit.
