Bermuda Travel Guide

At barely 20 square miles, Bermuda’s total area is dwarfed by its own reputation as one of the world’s most beautiful beach destinations. It’s crystal clear waters and pink sand beaches attract tens of thousands of vacationers a year, as do the ship wreaks and coral reefs that lie close to shore. But there’s also plenty to see on the surface. An overseas territory of the United Kingdom, Bermuda has been involved in many of history’s major events dating back as far as the English Civil War of the mid 1600s. If you travel to Bermuda, you’ll see signs of these historical moments and also ruins dating back to both World Wars. Sports fans will be interested in the island’s athletic accomplishments: there are several Bermudian rugby clubs, the island boasts an impressive roster on their national cricket team, and they even hosted the New York Yankees’ spring training in 1913. People of all ages will have something to enjoy when they visit Bermuda.

When to Go to Bermuda

Bermuda experiences a subtropical climate year round and summers can be particularly humid. The island’s temperature rarely falls below 50 °F. Bermuda does lie within the Hurricane Belt, although landfall is rare due to the island’s small size. Still, hotels operating in collaboration with the Bermuda Hotel Association do offer “Hurricane Guarantees” to travelers, meaning guests can cancel their reservations under certain Hurricane-related circumstances.
