Closer than you think, and more captivating’ than you could ever imagine, the British Overseas Territory of Bermuda isn’t just the stuff of idyllic island holidays. With pink sand beaches and beautiful blue waters, Bermuda makes the perfect climax to an unforgettable twin-centre holiday on the East Coast of the US.
What do you know about Bermuda? That it’s a beautiful British island territory blessed with coral-pink sands and achingly blue waters, warmed to perfection by the Gulf Stream? Does mention of the island evokes a slideshow of sigh-inducing images? Of cliff-jumping at Royal Admiralty Park, and diving to explore shipwrecks and coral reefs; of mouthwatering cuisine inspired by the freshest seafood; and of quaint British street names, pastel cottages and lush, subtropical nature? What you might not know is just how easy it is to experience Bermuda for yourself, particularly if you’re already booking a break on the East Coast of the US.
Bermuda is just over a two-hour flight from New York, Washington D.C., Boston and Philadelphia but, on arrival, even the most gridlocked soul is transported to a new world. In the time it takes to watch a movie, you could fly away to watch migrating whales, mountain bike along 18 miles of railway trail, go back in time in the colonial town of St George’s, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, or sip a Dark ’n’ Stormy as masked Gombey dancers seduce onlookers into an impromptu street carnival.
Love golf? Bermuda offers the world’s highest density of courses per square mile. Smitten by sea life? Discover world-class diving or take the opportunity to swim with dolphins at the Royal Naval Dockyard. Just want to relax on the beach? From world-famous Horseshoe Bay to the hid den Hog Bay Beach, Bermuda’s sands offer sunshine, sanctuary and water sports aplenty. So, make a beeline for Bermuda or add it to your East Coast adventure; either way, it’s time you explore this island paradise.
