Honeymoon in Bermuda

The people of Bermuda are thrilled to share the unique beauty and vibrant culture of our island paradise with you. Start planning your perfect escape to the other side of the world—right around the corner.

It only feels like a million miles away

Many people mistakenly believe our island is part of the Caribbean. In fact, we rest hundreds of miles north of the Bahamas in an astoundingly beautiful stretch of the Atlantic. A mere 1046 km / 650 miles east of North Carolina, flights from New York and other eastern US cities reach our shores in less than two hours.

Sublime, to put it simply

Extraordinarily pleasant weather and a distinctive islandscape make us love our island wholeheartedly. We know you will love it too.

Even though we speak of Bermuda as our "island," it is in fact composed of approximately 180 islands, linked by bridges, and divided into nine picturesque parishes. But all of our islands feature spectacular beaches, lush vegetation and unique wildlife.

Did you know...

  • Bermuda's whistling tree frogs once appeared on our postage stamps
  • The Town of St. George, a World Heritage site, is the oldest English-speaking colonial town still in existence
  • Rainfall generates our island's only supply of fresh water

Charming and affable at every encounter

Did you know...

  • Dating back to the 1600s, our heritage contains a strong mix of African, British, Caribbean and Native American roots
  • Saying "good morning" or "good afternoon" to everyone you see here is considered good manners

We Bermudians are a diverse group, with our numbers reaching approximately 65,500. Look around at our faces and you will see every colour of the rainbow. Listen to us speak and you will hear our official language, English, flavoured with a Bermudian lilt. Many of us also speak Portuguese.

We are flattered about our reputation as some of the friendliest people in the world, and we do our best to keep it that way. Needless to say, we very much look forward to showing you why we love to call this beautiful place our home.

Old-world charm with an island beat

Shipwrecks. African drum beats. Knee socks. Culturally, our resort island is a unique blend of colonial history and African heritage. This has given birth to our colourful local legends and rich traditions.

As Britain's oldest colony, its influence continues to dominate our government, educational and legal institutions. You may spot one of our judges walking through Hamilton in a powdered wig, see a bobby directing traffic or overhear a passionate conversation about a local cricket match.

African influences, while subtler, can be found in our dance and music, especially reggae, calypso and the rhythm of the Gombeys.

Did you know...

  • Our island was sighted by Spanish sea explorer Juan de Bermúdez in 1503
  • We are well known for our fresh seafood, pub lunches and the Dark 'n Stormy®
  • Bermuda shorts are considered business and smart casual wear

Brilliant Points of Light

The Bermuda Points of Light programme is an initiative designed by the Bermuda Department of Tourism to help generate group visitor arrivals to Bermuda. The programme is a pay-for-performance opportunity for both Bermudians and friends of Bermuda to receive financial gain in exchange for delivering groups of 15 or more to visit the island.

Points of Light will receive a commission upon verification that a land-based group, with a minimum number of 15 visitors has travelled to Bermuda You will have all the support you need from a Bermuda Department of Tourism liaison that will provide you with promotional materials, literature and anything else to convince the group to travel to Bermuda.

If you have always been a supporter of Bermuda, why not get the benefits?

Did you know...

  • Our island nurtures 1,000 varieties of plant life and 4,500 marine organisms
  • In Bermuda you are only a deep breath away from exploring centuries-old shipwrecks
  • Animals from the Caribbean, Australia, Asia, Madagascar and the Galapagos reside in our zoo
  • Our consistently temperate weather pleases our flora, fauna and ecotourists year round

For centuries, island residents have dedicated themselves to preserving our incredibly unique ecosystem. In fact, in the early 1600s some of our settlers issued the first conservation laws in the New World. Today, the Bermuda Audubon Society and the Bermuda National Trust are two of many organisations dedicated to protecting our natural wonders.

From world-famous birding to underground caves to lush nature reserves, see why we attract visitors the world over.

Go on then, get your feet wet

Water covers 80 percent of the earth. And we can attest to that fact because we are never more than .8 km / .5 miles from our beloved sea. From season after season of amazing fishing to thrilling aquatic adventures such as parasailing and waterskiing, we are very adept at making the most of our brilliant blue waters.

Be your own captain or sit back and let one of our skippers show you the ropes. There has never been a better time to join us and jump on in.

Did you know...

  • Our island is the finish line for several major boating events that start in the US
  • Some people compare parasailing to kite flying, where you are the kite
  • Many of the International Game Fishing Association's world-record catches were hauled in off our island

Idyllic setting, heavenly swimming

Since many of our most delightfully pink beaches are public, you may lie, stroll, gaze and play to your heart's content along our 120 km / 75 miles of dramatic coastline.

Even if our beaches did not feature rosy sand and clear, sapphire waves, they would still garner world renown for the amazing range of pleasures to partake in on our shores - body surfing, sun-bathing, swimming, snorkelling and kayaking, to name just a few.

  • Small concessions stands, often set up in a van parked near the beach, rent body boards, kayaks, snorkel masks and fins
  • Want to lounge under an umbrella? Chairs and umbrellas may also be rented
  • A few public beaches also have a snack bar selling drinks and regional snacks
  • Resorts with private beach access often have their own lifeguard, beach cafes and restrooms
  • The more remote beaches and coves may not have changing rooms or concession stands, but this seclusion is part of the appeal
