Bermuda is often forgotten about by most people I know because it’s so close to New York. It’s only a 2 hour flight but it doesn’t often come up as a place to shoot off to for a getaway. The more mainstream Caribbean places generally come up more often. However, Bermuda is awesome. The restaurants are world class, the culture is awesome with the Bermuda shorts and the English influence. But most of all, the beaches are tremendous. As you can see above on Horseshoe Beach, these beaches are top notch. The best thing about them is that they are surrounded by giant rocks and rock cliffs as you can see below so you can really get in some good cliff jumping, see me below. The heights vary and of course the depth of the water varies as well.
In Bermuda, the thing to do is rent scooters and drive around the island, which is a lot of fun. Rachel and I were there for a long weekend and we saw every inch of the island scooting around and it’s a great way to check out all of the beaches as well. Our favorite was Horseshoe Beach but Elbow beach and a few of the others were great too. It’s hard for me not to rave about Bermuda because I loved it so much. It is a perfect getaway with pristine beaches, great hotels and restaurants. It ain’t cheap in Bermuda but it is worth the splurge.
