Bermuda for couples
Bermuda is a fantastically romantic destination, what with its pink sand beaches, high-end resorts and stunning scenery. Whether you're looking for a laidback break where you do little more than soak up the sun and enjoy each other's company or you want to try a range of activities, Bermuda is ideal.
This peaceful Caribbean island has long been famous for its shorts and the mysterious Bermuda Triangle, but you'll quickly discover that there's a lot more to its history and culture than you thought. The island is also blessed with spectacular natural landscapes that you can explore together during your getaway.
What's more, there are plenty of places where you can enjoy a romantic dinner for two, with the isle being home to some excellent restaurants that serve up everything from local specialities and fresh seafood to international cuisines that will delight your palate.
Romance in Bermuda
Bermuda is a wonderful choice for couples who are looking to get away from all the stresses and strains of daily life. The island has a very chilled-out vibe that will make you feel relaxed the instant you step off the plane, but more than that it boasts some lovely, secluded spots where you can spend some quality time together.
There are, of course, numerous beaches dotted all along its shores and most of these have Bermuda's characteristic pink sands. Among the most picturesque are West Whale Bay Beach, where you can see migrating humpback whales passing by during April, and Jobson's Cove. The latter is very small but feels really secluded thanks to the steep cliffs that surround it. West Whale Bay Beach is much more open and backed by a large grassy area - the perfect place to watch the sunset.
Bermuda has some rather romantic customs, too, such as the charming idea that if a couple kisses under a moongate (one of the horseshoe-shaped arches that can be seen all over the island) they will have a long and happy life together. Newlyweds most commonly do this, but there's no reason why you can't too, even if you're not getting married.
Where to stay in Bermuda
There is a wide variety of accommodation options in Bermuda, which means no matter what your budget is, you should be able to find somewhere to stay that suits you. That said, there are some excellent all inclusive, adults-only resorts in Bermuda that are ideal for couples, as well as romantic high-end hotels, so couples can enjoy staying in the lap of luxury during their getaway.
Resorts like the Cambridge Beaches are perfect for couples, with this particular establishment boasting four private beaches and a wonderful spa, as well as offering plenty of opportunities to be active with kayaks and snorkelling equipment among the items available for guests.
As Bermuda is just 21 sq miles in size, you can stay anywhere on the island and still have access to all of its attractions without too much difficulty. While you can't hire a car here (you can hire a scooter though), there are excellent public transport services, not to mention lots of taxis. Couples looking for a bit of extra romance can even hire a horse-drawn carriage to get them from A to B!
Uncover Bermuda's culture
If you and your partner enjoy discovering the culture of the places you visit, then you need to spend time in Bermuda's capital, Hamilton. It's been the island's main hub since 1815, when it took over the role of capital from St George's.
There are several excellent museums here, including the Bermuda National Gallery - which is free to enter - and the Bermuda Society of Arts. You'll also find historical sites in Hamilton, such as Fort Hamilton and Sessions House, which is the island's parliament and still in use today.
But to really get to grips with Bermuda's history, you need to visit St George's. The town is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and was originally founded in the 1600s, with St Peter's Church being one of the oldest buildings in the town. Other interesting attractions here include the Bermuda National Trust Museum, the Botanical Gardens and the Bermuda Perfumery.
Don't miss the chance to see a range of traditional Bermudan crafts that are on sale at the various stores and markets in the Dockyard. This complex is made up of restored buildings that were once part of the Royal Naval Dockyard and offer an interesting glimpse into the island's past.
