Sun-worshippers will find beaches like no other during a holiday in Bermuda. The pink sands of this exotic destination are world famous, and you can experience their staggering beauty in hotspots like Horseshoe Bay and Elbow Beach. As well as offering superb snorkelling (the coral reefs have to be seen to be believed), Bermuda is also known for its many golf courses, historic forts and the many attractions in the capital city of Hamilton. A Bermuda holiday ticks just about every box, and won't be forgotten in a hurry.
British Airways offer frequent direct flights to Bermuda from London Gatwick, with a journey time of around eight hours. However, if you'd like to save a few hundred pounds and don't mind a longer journey, cheaper indirect flights on Air Canada are available from Glasgow International and Birmingham.
LF Wade International Airport (also known as Bermuda International) is around 11 kilometres from the capital city of Hamilton. While plenty of buses are available, they won't take on passengers with a lot of luggage, so a taxi may be your only way to your hotel. It's also worth noting that car hires doesn't exist there, and there is no rail network, although you can hire a moped to get around during your holiday in Bermuda. Failing that, the buses are air conditioned and very comfortable and convenient to use. Passenger ferries also offer a good way to get around the various islands that make up Bermuda
It can't be denied that Bermuda has a reputation as a high-end destination and costs can be high. Having said that, it is possible to find hotels in Bermuda within a smaller budget as long as you look around online for smaller hotels and B&Bs. You can also enjoy very large discounts if you're prepared to go off-season, which lasts from around November to March. Yes, some tourist attractions and facilities may be closed during this period, but many hotels slash their rates by as much as 50% or more, and you can still have an incredible holiday in Bermuda.
Savvy tourists can also save money on food if they choose dining spots carefully. Restaurants located near the various docks, which cater to cruise ship passengers who haven't got too much time to shop around and explore, tend to be considerably more expensive. Avoid these spots, head to less showy, more traditional little restaurants and cafes, and you can have a hearty meal at a fraction of the cost. Simple dishes like Hoppin' John (rice with black eyed peas) and saltfish and potatoes will give you a real taste of these idyllic islands.
