The meter starts at $5.15 and luggage is an additional $1 per piece.
If you were planning to hire a car then think again – there are no rental car services in Bermuda, but you can rent a scooter to explore the island.
Bermuda has no shortage of luxury hotels and spas for a romantic getaway or relaxing break. If you’re booking the ultimate luxury stay, Rosewood Bermuda has its own private beach and occupies 240 coastal acres, giving the hotel an altogether palatial feel. The resort is popular with golf lovers, who come to tee off at The Tucker’s Point Golf, Beach & Tennis Club – an 18-hole golf course which is one of the best on the island. Each of the 92 guestrooms and suites is decorated in a British seaside style, with a full bath with deep soaking tub and fine natural finishes.
If you’d like to be located next to Bermuda’s famous beach, Horseshoe Bay, the Fairmont Southampton is just a stone’s throw away. Situated on 100 sprawling acres of land, Fairmont Southampton offers 593 guest rooms, many with private balconies and sweeping views of the Atlantic Ocean. The hotel also has a total of ten on-site restaurants, a private beach club, 18-hole golf course, dive shop, outdoor pool, kiddie pool, and the Willow Stream spa.
Although referred to collectively, Bermuda is actually made up of 181 islands spanning almost 21 square miles in the Atlantic Ocean. Expect tropical island scenery with pink sandy beaches, turquoise blue waters and pastel coloured houses. Being a British overseas territory Bermuda feels like a slice of the UK plopped in the sunshine, although it also has North American, African, Portuguese and West Indian influences added to the mix. Divers will love the island’s reefs, while culture vultures will love the island’s museums and art galleries. Here are the top highlights of Bermuda:
Horseshoe Bay – Perhaps the most famous beach in Bermuda, Horseshoe Bay lies on the main island’s south coast, in the parish of Southampton. This beautiful beach is easily accessible by public transport; take the #7 bus from the City of Hamilton or the Royal Naval Dockyard.
Crystal Cave – This 500m long, 62m deep cave was formed during the Ice Age and only discovered in the 1900s. The caves are one of Bermuda’s most popular tourist attractions and boasts a lake of clear water with a roof of thousands of stalactites.
Royal Naval Dockyard – The Royal Naval Dockyard is a major entertainment area, with shops, bars and restaurants, as well as a national museum and craft market. It’s also the island’s biggest cruise ship terminal, so as you can imagine the area is usually bustling and very lively.
Being situated in the Atlantic, Bermuda can get a little chilly in the evenings, so make sure you pack a light jacket. Overall though, Bermuda enjoys year-round warm weather and sunshine so there’s never a “bad” time to visit. The warmest temperatures are during the summer months of April to October, with July being the hottest month. In the winter months from November to March the island is less crowded and the temperatures are still pleasant; February is the coldest month with an average temperature of 18°C.
