Caribbean 101: Bermuda

Get ready for the ultimate Bermuda Triangle: sunshine, golf, and pink-sand beaches!

Surely one of the crown jewels of our planet, Bermuda is surrounded by aquamarine seas and blanketed by lush green trees, shrubs, and lawns – only part of its British legacy and allure. Shop for Wedgwood china, crystal, cashmere, and linens in postcard-perfect Hamilton, then tee off on world-class golf courses.

Forbid yourself to depart this Atlantic Ocean jewel before sinking your toes into warm pink sands! There are no less than 34 unique and beautiful beaches, most of them public. Head for stunning Horseshoe Bay for all the surfside amenities, Elbow Beach for calm waters, or secluded Warwick Long Bay Beach (also great for snorkeling).

Best Beaches For...

  • Families: Bermuda's most celebrated beach, Horseshoe Bay is a long, sweeping crescent of pink sand with more public facilities than any other beach on the island.
  • Snorkeling: The crystalline waters of picturesque Jobson's Cove are calm and shallow in most places, ideal for snorkeling amid colorful marine life.
  • Whale-Watching: Watch migrating humpback whales from West Whale Bay Beach, set below a rocky cliff where you can also enjoy brilliant sunsets. Calm, shallow waters are ideal for families and shore fishermen.
