Best Time To Go
Bermuda is a year-round destination (it has a subtropical climate), but the best time to visit is September and October, when the humidity of summer disappears but water temperatures remain warm enough for swimming. Bonus: This is when hotel rooms typically become less expensive, since autumn is the start of shoulder season.
Car rentals are not permitted in Bermuda, so if you’d like your own wheels, you’ll have to rent a scooter. It’s the island’s transportation of choice (locals call them “bikes”)—just make sure to stay on the left side of the road, since Bermuda is still a British overseas territory. Don’t like scooters? Public busses and ferries cover most of the island and taxis are widely available—though a bit expensive.
February is the coolest month, with an average temperature of 66°F (18°C). July is the hottest month, with an average temperature of 80°F (26°C).
Know Before You Go
Despite popular belief, Bermuda is located in the Atlantic Ocean, not the Caribbean—it’s about 650 miles due east of Cape Hatteras, N.C.. Days are usually warm but nights, especially in winter, can get cool so pack a light sweater or rain jacket.
