Luxury in Bermuda: Friendly people, unspoilt nature and no neon signs
Bermuda is a paradise in the Atlantic for what it offers as well as for what it lacks. The 21 square mile island is situated on the North Atlantic and off the east coast of North America. It consists of a string of around 180 islands and tiny islets, out of which some 20 are inhabited and seven are joined by bridges and causeways to the main island. In 2013, Bermuda was voted as the best island in the whole of Caribbean and Atlantic. The crime level is low, it never looks crowded. The people are warm, welcoming, and the smiles are genuine. There are no billboards or neon signs, and few cars spoil the amazing countryside. The unique architecture of the houses and shops fit naturally into the landscapes. Some of the world's most beautiful and pink sandy beaches are in Bermuda. If you love to swim, snorkel or tan on the beaches, there is probably no better place in the world. There are some incomparable tourist attractions and places to see and getting around the island by bus or ferry or taxi is very easy. You can also rent a moped or a scooter giving you all the freedom you want as you explore the island.
Since Victorian times, tourist have been travelling to Bermuda to escape the cold North American winters, and they still do so. Hamilton is the capital, and only city. St. George is the old capital. Flatts Village is the location of the Bermuda Aquarium, and Museum. Bermudians and their culture add a very unique dimension to this island. With a blend of British, Caribbean and American culture, you still get a feel of old colonial as well as modern charm. Accommodation in Bermuda is normally somewhat pricey, but there are many exclusive private villas. Various luxury Bermuda villas are available for rent. Weather on the island is sub-tropical in nature so it is never too hot or too cold. The temperature varies between an average high of 87°F during summer to a low of 56°F in winter. Two relatively unique Bermudian dishes are salted codfish, boiled with potatoes, the time-honoured Sunday breakfast, and Hoppin' John, a simple dish of boiled rice and black-eyed peas. Restaurants can be found all over the island, with the largest concentration in the city of Hamilton and St George town.
