Bermuda

Lose yourself in the enchanting scenery and crystal waters of this historic chain of islands – perfect for relaxation and activity alike

Floating in the glittering Atlantic waters, Bermuda is a subtropical paradise of 21 square miles of islands, islets and rocks, all surrounded by a coral reef plateau. The temperature hovers in the high 20s for most of the year, thanks to a unique climate caressed by the warming waters of the Gulf Stream. And Britain's oldest colony offers a more exotic slice of home, with traditional Bobbies, afternoon tea and red telephone boxes.

It's scattered with landmarks and hundreds of forts, as well as the Unesco World Heritage listed Town of St George dating from 1612, and a host of historic sites. Natural attractions, meanwhile, include the stunning Spittal Pond and the Azure pools of The Crystal and Fantasy Caves.

One of Bermuda's most alluring draws is, of course, its beaches - imagine youself walking barefoot along the postcard perfect pink sands of Horseshoe Bay. Then there are quiet, secluded coves as well as family favourites like Shelly Bay or Tobacco and Church Bays - ideal for snorkelers.

Check-in to a family-run inn or one of the island's sophisticated and luxurious resorts that all play a part in Bermuda's long tradition of hospitality. Freshly landed fish, spiny lobster and the island's celebrated fish chowder are just some of the must-eats, to be found at the island's 150+ restaurants includingthe relaxed Wahoo Bistro or the award-winning Ascots.

If you would prefer to get our and get active, there are myriad possibilities. Enjoy gental bike toursalong the island's Railway Trail, horse ride along Horseshoe Bay and hike the coastal trail of South Shore Park. Divers can explore the world's largest concentration of wreck dives such as the remains of the Cristobal Colon, a Spanish liner washed up in Bermudian waters, or join a kayaking Eco Adventure along Bermuda's scenic coast line.

Bermuda also has more golf courses per square milethan anywhere else in the world. Enthusiastas can tee off at one of the island's seven championship courses like its oldest private club, Riddell's Bay Golf & Country Club, and the popular Port Royal Golf Course.
