While Bermuda has much in common with many Caribbean islands, this affluent archipelago in the western Atlantic also has much to set it apart. One of Britain’s oldest colonies, Bermuda is a British Overseas Territory attractive to both European and North American travellers alike – New York is a mere 90-minute flight away. The climate is one of Bermuda’s defining aspects; located over 800 miles north of the West Indies, the optimum time to visit the archipelago is between early spring and late autumn, opening up a period when many other similar destinations are under the influence of tropical storms and hurricanes. Bermuda’s rich topography is another defining aspect. Limestone caves and mangrove forests lend themselves to a variety of soft adventure and wildlife spotting pursuits, while 200 miles of coral reef offer some of the best scuba diving in the world.
Bermuda is a destination that lends itself equally well to accommodating a delightfully slower pace of life. Relax on the shores of a white or pink sand beach, play a leisurely round of golf overlooking turquoise waters of the Mid-Atlantic, or feast on fresh lobster in historic Georgetown, home to sophisticated galleries and boutiques. Bermuda is also blessed with a number of luxury resorts, where service levels meet the demands of even the most well-travelled client and where you can indulge in a holiday that is as active or relaxed as you wish.
