If the view above isn’t enough reason to visit Bermuda, I’m going to convince you why should make your way there. I just got back from visiting Bermuda on a seven-day cruise leaving from NYC. The cruise only allowed me to visit the island for 2 and a half days, and I wish that I had more time. I’ll get more into what to expect when taking a cruise on a later blog post.
The beaches in Bermuda are fascinating. I only got to visit one beach during my visit, but it was nothing short of amazing.
Horseshoe Bay Beach is one of the most popular beaches in Bermuda. It is named one of the top ten Carribean beaches to visit. Some people refer to it as Flamingo Beach or Pink Sand Beach. It has fantastic views and is very relaxing, and the sand turns a light pink when the waves hit.
Harbor Nights is a celebration that takes place every Wednesday from 7-10pm on Front Street of Hamilton. It’s a festival that celebrates all of Bermudian culture from art, food and some great shopping. There are live music performances, arts and crafts, and many restaurants.
A great place to see Gombey Dancers is during Harbor Nights in Hamilton. They are very entertaining with music and dancing to the mixture of British, Caribbean, and Afro Beats.
National Museum of Bermuda
Containing over 500 years of Bermuda history and culture. There is so much history in this museum from shipwreck artifacts, local watercraft, the slave trade, and the progress of electrical power (Bermuda didn’t have electrical power until the 1950’s).
My short visit to Bermuda was a great experience, and I look forward to coming back again in the future. If you decide to go, I would suggest planning a visit of at least four days to get to do sightseeing and getting adequate beach days in. I would recommend making it Hamilton to experience shopping, Horshoe Bay Beach, and while I didn’t get to go to St. Georges make it a top priority to visit.
