Why visiting Bermuda
I am sure The Bermuda Triangle is one of the first things that would come to your mind when talking about this island. But there is way more than that. And this is indeed one of my favourite destinations for a quick and recharging getaway. It is going to get cold and snowy (unfortunately). But that doesn’t mean we can’t play golf, or go to the beach. We just need to know where we want to go and Bermuda is definitely and exciting and fun destination.
Although Bermuda is small and remote, this emerald archipelago is less than a three hour flight from Toronto. And it offers a quick escape to a world of its own. Simply pretty and prosperous with lovely pink sand beaches. It has some of the most wonderful and astonishing golf courses I have ever played in.
A British heritage.
Bermuda’s British heritage is reflected in traditions like afternoon tea, cricket matches, and driving on the left side of the road. Galleries, shops, historical forts, and world-class golf courses are all packed into just 54 square kilometres of semi-tropical paradise.
It doesn’t matter if you are planning a small board retreat, a corporate meeting, a large group incentive travel. Or if you just want to get away from it all and travel with your family and / or friends. I can assure you that Bermuda will be an excellent and unforgettable choice.
The followings are my favourite things to do:
Golf – Play like a champion, and get treated like one
With ideal weather and dramatic oceanfront fairways, it is no wonder Bermuda is a golfer’s paradise. With six world-class courses threaded throughout the island’s 21 square miles – more golf courses per capita than anywhere else in the world. The best linksmen and women of the past century (not to mention movie stars, presidents and royalty) have played here. Each course has been designed with diverse terrain and challenges as well as sweeping ocean views. Warning: After a round in Bermuda, other courses will likely pale in comparison.
Tucker’s Point Golf Course
The 18-hole, par-70 Tucker’s Point Golf Course is the island’s premier golf experience. Originally designed in 1932 by Charles H. Banks, the course was enhanced in 2002 by Roger Rulewich, the former chief designer for Robert Trent Jones.
Golfers traverse undulating fairways with many elevated tees, while coping with the varying speed and direction of changeable winds. Many holes and greens boast dramatic water and overland views, and the greens feature TifEagle, a Bermuda-grass hybrid that makes for a quick putting surface. A practice facility including a driving range, 10,000-square-foot practice putting green and short-game area is featured.
Port Royal Golf
Ranked among the world’s best public golf courses by Golf Digest and named Bermuda’s finest course by the New York Times, Port Royal is home of stunning ocean views, breathtaking Bermuda landscapes and one of the greatest holes in golf. First of all, it features 18 championship holes over 6,842 manicured yards, the longest and most picturesque course in all of Bermuda.
And for those left with any question please consider Port Royal’s signature hole. Widely regarded as one of the greatest par threes in golf, the 16th hole is a 235-yard crescent-shaped beauty with nothing but the Atlantic Ocean between the tee and the pin. Experience it for yourself and you too will understand why Port Royal is indeed the number one golf course in Bermuda.
Gorgeous and well renowned beaches
No matter how many Caribbean beaches you’ve been to, you’ve probably never seen any quite like the ones in Bermuda. Tiny bits of coral and pulverized shell create the blush tone which is especially pink along the south shores of Horseshoe Bay and Warwick Long Bay.
My top pick: Horseshoe Bay – A picturesque beach of silky pink sand and brilliant blue sea, this is Bermuda’s most famous beach and one of its most popular. Port Royal Cove at one end of the beach is ideal for little ones with its calm waters. Beachside cafés, change rooms, and equipment rental are all available along this beautiful stretch of coast, and interesting rock formations add to the appeal.
The beach has been ranked in the Top 20 beaches in the world by Conde Nast Traveller in 2016.
Boating and sailing tours
A Bermuda vacation, in my opinion, is never complete without experiencing a scenic boat or a sailing tour. Because this is a great way to explore the blue waters and its amazing marine life, coral reefs and the small islands that are otherwise not possible to see from the shore, and also to enjoy the scenery of the coastline. And while most take the group boat tours that operate on per person rate, you can also charter a motorboat, yacht or a catamaran.
My romantic tip: Taking a sunset cruise. You can either join a group tour or for a more refined and romantic experience charter a yacht or small catamaran. It will be memorable and unforgettable.
