Bermuda travel videos
Bermuda is a British Overseas Territory. Bermuda consist of 181 tiny islands in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean. It is a popular destination for the wealthiest in the world, business men and women, actors, actresses and cruise ships. It has an interesting mixture of America and the UK where the Bermudian dollar is the official currency. Flight duration is just two hours from New York and seven hours from London. Bermuda is an excellent location for a relaxing holiday, but not really a backpacker paradise. We made a short Bermuda island tour video about the most beautiful parts of the island including some private clubs which are not accessible for regular tourists unless you know a member.
The capital city is Hamilton where only 1,010 people live, but 13 times more (40% of the whole island) work on a daily basis. Most cruise ships arrive to Royal Naval Dockyard which has an excellent ferry service, so you can easily discover the whole island with ferry. If you are thinking about renting a car, then I have bad news for you. There isn’t a single car rental company on the island as it is prohibited by the government. Don’t worry the small pink buses will be your friends or you can get taxi at the airport, in Hamilton or at your hotel. If you are brave enough you can rent scooters or pedal bikes, but be aware that roads are very narrow and winding. No matter if you are riding your scooter or walking (by the way pavement is very rare outside of the city boundaries and some places even within it) you need to be very careful and watch out for cars at all times.
L.F. Wade International Airport is very close to and St. George’s which was the old capital city before Hamilton. The Town of St. George presents a unique opportunity for people to learn about and to sense Bermuda’s culture, traditions and heritage. If you are lucky (or plan ahead and be at noon on the right day of the week) you can catch a very interesting free historical re-enactment at St. George’s harbour.
The highest point on the main island is Gibbs Hill where the tallest lighthouse is located which is 36 m high. It is absolutely recommended to go there and look around to see the whole island from above. However frankly the majority of tourists are not interested in the land as they came to Bermuda to discover the amazing underwater life. For the professional divers there are some very unique shipwrecks around the island, but it is also a snorkeling paradise. Before you start to explore the underwater life please watch our snorkeling video which shows you names of most frequent Bermuda fishes and corals. There are only two creatures you need to watch out and stay away from, the Portuguese Man of War (which has a purple-blue colored bladder that floats above the water surface) and the lion fish as both are dangerous!
Pink sandy beaches, sunshine and friendly people that is why we love Bermuda. Even if you don’t visit the historical places, interesting museums, play golf or do any kind of water sports, but just relax on the beach where you will feel Bermuda is another world.
Best known beaches are the following:
- Horseshoe Bay Beach (with lots of tourist especially in high season)
- Elbow Beach
- Achilles’ Bay Beach (a very small one with lots of coral reefs close to the shore, ideal place for snorkelling)
- St. Catherine Beach
- Tobacco Bay Beach
Several beautiful beach are closed for the public. Rich people, hotels and some exclusive clubs have private beaches with golf courses and tennis courts and some other facilities. Coral Beach and Tennis Club in our next video is one of them.
We hope you will visit Bermuda soon and send us your breath taking videos and pictures which we would be happy to edit for you.
