Situated in the North Atlantic, Bermuda is actually made up of over 180 islands, islets & rocks. Eight are linked by bridges & causeways which gives the illusion of one island. There are a host of accommodations to choose from – small b&bs to luxury hotels – our favourite is Elbow Beach.
Elbow Beach is part of the Mandarin Oriental Group, so luxuriously high standards are guaranteed. Its 235 rooms & suites, split between hotel & cottages, lie in lush landscaped gardens leading down to one of the islands best beaches just 2 miles from the island’s capital, Hamilton. Facilities include a state of the art fitness club, a putting green, cycle shop, and plenty of hammocks strung between the palm trees – perfect for a snooze in the sunshine!
Bermuda lays claim to having more golf courses per square mile than any other country and is a year round destination for golfers. For those more passionate about the sea there is every conceivable activity available: both reef and wreck scuba diving, parasailing, yacht charters, reef and deep sea fishing are all available.
Bermuda has a fascinating history as Britain’s oldest colony; dating back to 1612 so a visit to the Maritime Museum at the Royal Naval Dockyard is a must as is a visit to the island’s former capital, St Georges.
