Bermuda


Traveler's Joy has given us the run down on our honeymoon to Bermuda…


An Overview
Bermuda is believed to be the most beautiful island destination in the world. For years, it has lured honeymoon couples to its pristine pink sand beaches, its quiet coves, its charming cottages and impeccably maintained gardens. It won't take long to appreciate the natural beauty - warm, crystal-clear waters; coral reefs teeming with life, glorious sunshine; and lush colorful flowers - not to mention their unique history and charming white roofs of pastel-painted architecture. No wonder they call Bermuda the island made for two.
 
A honeymoon in Bermuda is an experience no one should miss. The Atlantic's hues of blue and green set against pastel colored cottages and gleaming white roofs, create a lasting impression. Bermuda may seem like a tiny isolated island in geographical terms but you will discover Bermuda is surprisingly sophisticated. The country boasts fabulous hotels, restaurants with menus as imaginative as anything in London or New York, great duty-free shopping and a booming financial center. Bermuda remains a model of political and social stability and is now one of the world's leading insurance and reinsurance markets.
 
Activities and Attractions
Scuba Dive:
For divers, Bermuda boasts some of the most spectacular scuba diving in the world with 230 miles of reefs to explore. Bermuda's reefs are home to more than 10,000 species of marine life from the humble sea fan to migratory whales. Crystal clear waters mean visibility is often good up to 150 feet. 

Hit the beach: Bermuda is famous for its silky soft pink beaches. There is nearly 25 miles of beach ranging from long sandy stretches to intimate coves and rocky shores. Most of the island's best sand beaches can be found on the South Shore where the water tends to be rougher and conditions are often ideal for body surfing. North Shore beaches tend to be rockier but the water calmer.

Relax in a spa: Take advantage of one of the island's growing number of first-class spas to really relax while on your honeymoon. Whether you go for an invigorating hour or a full, indulgent day, it is the way to relax, rejuvenate, and revitalize yourself. The Spa at Ariel Sands, Willow Stream Spa, and the Spa at Elbow Beach are three of the top spas on the island.

Moped: One of the best ways to see the island is to rent a moped during your stay. Whizzing around on your moped, you will uncover deserted beaches, cricket matches, and other island life.

Jet ski safari: If you are an adrenaline junkie couple, take a jet ski safari or a high-speed catamaran tour around the island. Why not try a water-ski, windsurf, kitesurfing, or parasailing adventure after the safari. Whatever your choice, there is no better way to enjoy Bermuda's natural beauty than being in, out, or under the water.

Shopping: Bermuda is a shopper's paradise, whether you are hunting for luxury merchandise at affordable prices or exploring local arts and crafts. You will be tempted by a wide range of international goods and famous brand names. 

Feast: In Bermuda you will find almost every international cuisine alongside island specialties, all exquisitely prepared and presented. The island boasts some of the most sophisticated restaurants in the world, but here are also many more modest establishments where home-style dishes are served in generous quantities-at generous prices. What makes Bermudan food distinctive, however, is the freshness and diversity of local ingredients – lobster, wahoo, tuna, rockfish, red snapper, shark, and mussels.
