Bermuda Travel Guide

Expert travel advice, maps, and more for the perfect getaway.

Discover Bermuda

With its unique combination of British, North American, West Indian, and Portuguese influences that feel by turns sophisticated and small-town, Bermuda is a paradise like another world.

There’s definitely an ephemeral, cotton candy element to the 21-square-mile island with its hallmark hue of confectionery pink that brands buses, hibiscus, cottages, and those legendary linen shorts. Arriving over impossibly turquoise bays, so translucent you can almost spot the parrotfish frolicking beneath the silky surface, is to experience a suspension of disbelief normally reserved for Hollywood make-believe. The trilling tree frogs, wobbly scooter rides, perfumed breezes, and laid-back lifestyle probably won’t do much to shatter the illusion.

Discover the charm of the island with our best of Bermuda in one week itinerary, head out for a romantic retreat, or find your adrenaline rush with the best of Bermuda’s extreme sports. And of course, there’s always the world-renowned, pristine coral-tinged beauty of the island’s many beaches.

What to Eat in Bermuda

Is there a true Bermudian cuisine? Gourmands might snigger at such a proposition, but Bermuda has claimed its repertoire of hallmark dishes—usually a melting pot of items from other places adapted for local menus. The amalgam of British, West Indian, African, and Portuguese cultural influences has created a somewhat eclectic collection of local dishes.
