One of my most favorite islands to date, come and explore this amazingly beautiful island with us! Bermuda is sooo gorgeous!
Bermuda has a chain of over 180 coral islands and inlets. It's a mere 650 miles away from the coast of Cape Hatteras, NC. When you think of NC weather, you've got this island's weather pretty much figured out. July-September are the hottest months! The travel season is limited, which explains why this island is one of the pricier places to visit. This island is completely dependent upon rainfall for their fresh water source. and groceries can be pricy here as well (think shipping all items to this island and you realize why the cost can be higher to live here).
Tourism is one of the top industries in Bermuda (the second being international business). From the gorgeous scenery to discover, it's easy to see why Bermuda tops the list of THE DESTINATIONS to explore!
Ruled by Britain, you can see the influence everywhere you look!! Think cozy shops, very friendly folks and delicious food. From the Bermuda Shorts, knee high socks with penny loafers, Bermuda style is all it's own!
Transportation is easy and super convenient in Bermuda. The ferry service is on time (we actually missed one ferry that was punctual) when we were checking out cute, bustling Hamilton. Should you venture onto the bus system, prepare to have a blast! Our bus was full when we finally got on, so each time we stopped, we had to jump off the bus then jump back on. Our driver flew through the small roads, and at one point our bus driver hit the curb!! The ride was hilarious! Be sure to purchase the 2 day pass, we did and were glad. The combo pass made it super convenient to get around the islands. The price made it very reasonable too.
When we journeyed to Bermuda last fall, we took a cruise there and stayed for 2 full days in port. The first day we discovered the fun Bermuda Aquarium, Museum and Zoo. It was great fun! I loved the small monkeys on the trees (not in a cage but out in the open). After we enjoyed some time in the zoo and aquarium, we ventured over into the AZU Beastro for a quick snack. The staff was friendly and the peacock strutting about loved our snacks too. I tried out the Dark and Stormy (their signature Bermuda drink) that wasn't half bad.
My favorite tropical beach to date is definitely Jacob's Cove, Bermuda! A secluded, non touristy, well kept secret, Jacob's Cove is a TOP BEACH in my book. There's a small cove perfect for small children to play in the calm surf....build a sand castle or admire the gorgeous tropical fish that casually swim about. This place is a true piece of heaven on earth. Should you need a snack, a small mobile stand is set up with light snacks (think water, beer, French fries, etc.). This was by far my most favored location in Bermuda and I'm already dreaming of heading back there again soon.
Eating out was a breeze and fun! We ate at a small restaurant in Hamilton, with yummy appetizers and a delicious Rum Swizzle.
Interested in visiting Bermuda? You'll be glad you journeyed there. I'm already ready to head back to Bermuda again very soon.
