Pink sand beaches and British hospitality — Bermuda is known as the jewel of the Atlantic. Many people mistakenly believe Bermuda is part of the Caribbean. In fact, it is hundreds of miles north of the Bahamas in an astoundingly beautiful stretch of the Atlantic, a mere 650 miles east of North Carolina. Flights from New York and other eastern US cities reach the island in less than two hours. Bermuda has a humid sub-tropical, on the border of tropical climate and the best time to travel is in the Spring, Summer and Fall.

We have traveled to Bermuda many times since 1981. One of our favorite places to visit is the Bermuda National Library in Hamilton. Hamilton is located on the north side of Hamilton Harbor Drive. It is famous for shopping and local boutiques, restaurants and beautiful vistas of the harbor. And yes, the police are all wearing Bermuda shorts!
So memorable is the picturesque southern part of the island to the South Shore and scenic drive through Somerset Village, over Somerset Drawbridge, the smallest drawbridge in the world built in 1620. View Gibbs Hill Lighthouse, which is alleged to be one of the oldest cast iron lighthouses in the world. And continue along the South Shore where you’ will enjoy swimming in pink sand beaches, azure blue waters, scuba diving, fishing and a major attraction is the many golf courses throughout the island.
