alone in the Atlantic, 508 miles east of Cape Hatteras, North Carolina,
Bermuda remains one of the wealthiest countries in the world with a beauty
and charm second to none. Although Bermuda is a major link in
international business, it still manages to uphold the quaintness and
friendly atmosphere of a small island paradise.
Bermuda is only a 2 hour flight from New
York, and 6 major airlines service the island on a daily basis. Airfare to
Bermuda is generally less expensive during the "off season"
which is November through March where the weather is at it's coolest &
wettest. Between May and mid-October, the temperatures range from
75°F to 90°F with the humidity very high.
Bermuda offers some of the best site-seeing in the world. With it's
gorgeous crystal blue water, and cool pink sand, some of the beaches are
ranked the most beautiful in the world. There is lots to do
and see on the Island, so you need to plan your days out carefully to make
sure you experience as much as you can. Anything from water sports,
golfing, hiking, or even sunbathing - you will be sure to find some
activity to keep you busy during your stay.
||Getting around in Bermuda is fairly easy as
you have a choice of methods. Taxis are plentiful throughout the Island,
and most drivers make it a general practice to be extremely friendly and
helpful. You could always get adventurous and rent a moped or scooter,
which seems to be the most popular method of travel for locals alike. Cars
are not available to visitors. Aside from that, there is the public bus
system, and ferry boats that will take you from one end of the Island
to the other for a small fee.
Dining is always a treat in
Bermuda as there is a diversified selection of international
cuisine to choose from. Eating out can tend to be rather
expensive at times, especially since there are no McDonald's
or Burger King to grab a quick bite. Be sure to make
reservations and check the dress code at some of the finer
restaurants. Always watch the bill as it is a general
practice of most restaurants to add the 15% gratuities to
the bill automatically.
|Generally, you will find the locals
friendly and helpful, but there are some areas of the Island that would
probably be best to stay clear of. Check with your hotel staff on areas to
be aware of, otherwise enjoy the sites and be careful on the roads... we
drive on the left!
