Bermuda – An Island Paradise

I have just returned from an educational visit to the beautiful island of Bermuda, courtesy of British Airways & the Bermuda Tourism Authority. 

Bermuda is a British Overseas Territory in the North Atlantic Ocean it is reached in just over 7 hours from Gatwick with daily direct flights. The currency is the Bermuda Dollar & is based on the US Dollar.

The colours of Bermuda are sensational from the stunning blue sea, the unique pink fine sandy beaches, the delightful flowers and hedgerows.

The Bermudians are the friendliest hosts and love to have a chat with you. They are very proud of their island heritage & enjoy informing you of their history, what to do & where to go. 

Bermuda is sold as a destination all year round and the weather could be good in our winter months but I would recommend travelling between April and November when you can be assured of the sunshine & warmth of the seas. Car hire is not permitted on the island & there is a speed limit of 20 mph. It is easy to explore by taxi, bus, ferry or scooter. The list of things to do in Bermuda is endless, much more than I ever imagined, golf, watersports, museums, diving, fishing, bird watching & of course rum tasting.

The hotels I have visited & I can tell you about are :-

Rosewood Tucker’s Point,  Cambridge Beaches Resort & Spa, The Fairmont Hamilton Princess, The Fairmont Southampton, Grotto Bay Beach Resort, The Reefs Hotel & Spa, Newstead Belmont Hills, Royal Palm & The Rosedon Hotel.

I can recommend restaurants for you & can also vouch for the shopping in Hamilton! I have been horse back riding on the beach, had a tour on a Segway at the Royal Naval Dockyard, and a golf lesson at Belmont Hills.

Please call me to talk about Bermuda, better still, if you are in the area of Loughton I will make you a Dark ‘n’ Stormy or a Rum Swizzle with a slice of Rum Cake.
