Bermuda Vacations

Coming Soon

Welcome to the oldest British colony. Contrary to popular belief, Bermuda is not a single island but rather an archipelago of around 180 islands with around 20 of them inhabited. There are 8 larger islands connected by causeways and bridges and the rest can be reached by ferry or boat.
 
The proper British way of life is very evident when you see the immaculate gardens and trim houses. Everything runs like clockwork and the people are polite. Of course the island life gives a full dose of an easy and relaxed atmosphere. Bermuda is also famous for its offshore financial institutions and is referred to as a tax or corporate haven.
 
This destination does focus on an older clientele who enjoy quaint colonial towns and days filled with golf. Young families also appreciate the quieter beaches. The nightclubs are more subdued, giving place to the performing arts, the theatre or English pubs.

Bermuda Vacation Tips

In Bermuda, the legal tender is the Bermuda Dollar and it is at par with the US Dollar. Although prices are listed with the national currency, US dollars are accepted readily.

Bermudians drive on the LEFT side. Car rentals are not permitted in Bermuda. As a mater of fact residents are only allowed one car per household. This is due to the island's strong environmental commitment. Taxis, buses, mini buses and ferries make up the island's public transportation. The most popular way to get around is with a moped or a scooter. Be very careful as accidents are common, especially for first timers. There are many rental places but you must be at least 16 years old and helmets are obligatory by law.
