Your Bermuda vacation
Bermuda offers a colorful getaway: pink sand beaches, brilliant blue waters and long green fairways. While it's only about 650 miles off North Carolina, Bermuda still retains many British traditions, like afternoon tea, which add a sophisticated vibe to island life. Here are some vacation tips to help you enjoy your Bermuda vacation.
Best time to take a vacation to Bermuda
Best Time to Go
Bermuda is blessed with a mild climate through the year, so a trip to Bermuda can be made anytime. The summer season lasts from April to October—the perfect time for swimming, diving, and snorkeling because the water and air temperatures are just right for these activities. This time of the year also witnesses more variety in entertainment and a livelier atmosphere, when the cruise ships come in bringing along huge crowds of travelers. At the same time, it must be noted that midsummer is hot and humid and the possibility of a hurricane cannot be completely ruled out. The winter season lasts from November to March when it is cold and chilly and most suitable for other activities like hiking, sightseeing, or playing tennis and golf. Bermuda travel costs are definitely lower at this time, and you’ll find the island less inhabited as well.
