- Bermuda Luxury holidays
The island of Bermuda, found in the North Atlantic Ocean off the east coast of America, has plenty to attract British visitors. A subtropical climate keeps the weather comfortable all year round, with the majority of days having no rain. It is no surprise then that one of the island's iconic garments is Bermuda shorts, and this is more than just a stereotype; the island's athletes even wear them as part of their formal outfit for the Opening Ceremony of the Olympic Games, even in the years when a Winter Olympics is held.
Bermuda for Brits
Bermuda is a British overseas territory with English as its first language, making it a welcoming destination for luxury breaks by UK residents. It was discovered by the Spanish in 1503 but the English were the first to settle there - at first by seeking refuge after a shipwreck, but with deliberate arrivals from 1612 onwards. St George's was the first capital of Bermuda in that year, and is officially the oldest English town in the New World to have been occupied continuously ever since. A further link is the most north-westerly of the islands in the Bermuda chain, which shares its name with the second-largest of the British Isles too: Ireland.
Pastel pink Bermuda beaches
Bermuda is especially well known for the unusual pink colour of many of its sandy beaches, which contrasts in pastel tones with the pale blue of the surrounding ocean. Many of the nearby coral reefs can be reached quite easily, making them a good option for novice divers, and visibility underwater is typically excellent too. Snorkelers should be able to reach reefs at Church Bay, while scuba divers should also have a selection of shipwrecks to explore around the island, many of which can be found in fairly shallow waters just off the beaches all the way around the coast.
When should I visit Bermuda?
Bermuda is a great destination if you are not keen on the hottest temperatures found, for example, on the Mediterranean islands or in the Caribbean. At the height of summer in July and August, Bermuda averages 26-27°C, comparable with the hottest British days at that time of year. The winter is perhaps an even better time to make the trip to the island though, as from December through until April temperatures remain at a warming 18-19°C.
What’s on offer on a luxury holiday?
