Bermuda: I was transported the second I arrived…the colors of this dreamy getaway destination are other-worldly! A British island territory in the North Atlantic Ocean, Bermuda has an incredible combination of American and British culture. Even though it’s small, I could have spent weeks exploring the colorful architecture and wandering historical St. George. And that doesn’t even include the beaches! I had seen photos of the pink sand and ultra-blue water, but nothing prepared me for seeing it in person! With Bermuda’s lively cuisine, colorful cottages and THE friendliest people ever, it’s one of my absolute favorite places to visit.
This was the perfect spot for Mad and I to ring in the New Year – crazy how much has changed since then! Our days started with coffee, fresh juice and the most amazzziinnng breakfast spread on our beautiful balcony. From there, we would plan the afternoon’s adventure! Sunset sailing, exploring Hamilton, walking the rose-tinted beaches, discovering the caves of Bermuda…the activity list is endless, but we didn’t feel rushed and were careful not to pack our days with too much. We left room to relax, explore, and soak up every moment. Our go-to dinner was fresh seafood outside, watching the sun set behind the water.
A magical place with M A G I C A L people to match… I can’t wait to go back. Until then, here are my Bermuda faves:
Casual pub with outdoor seating and a fun vibe! They have a huge menu for both dinner and lunch, but are known for their Rum Swizzle! Don’t leave without ordering one!
Grilled. Fresh. Figs. A menu highlight – With feta and balsamic, my favorite! I also loved the seared scallops. Can’t go wrong with this spot if you like seafood.
Fresh healthy food AND a craft coffee bar? Count me in. This is the perfect place to stop for coffee and a pastry, or even grab something to-go from their deli. Great pre-beach lunch stop!
When you’re looking for something a little fancier! Fine wine and fresh seafood, this is a great spot for a date night out!
Modern Japanese cuisine, with some of the best sushi I’ve had! So fresh – You can even watch them make it with their open kitchen concept. Located across the Hamilton Harbor, it has some stunning views as well!
The steakhouse of Bermuda! I’m not a big steak person, but Mad said it was phenomenal. I ordered some veggies off the Garden section of the menu – it was perfect! Their dock is also a great place to have a drink.
If you like burgers, this is not to miss. They claim to have the best burger in Bermuda, and I’m not arguing. It. Was. Amazing.
Quaint and lovely, this historic island town is worth exploring for a few hours. I felt like I had stepped into the colonial era! Definitely stop by St. Paul’s church, and if you go in the summer, enjoy the period actors! They walk around the town and simulate the old days. So fun!
Deep clear underground swimming holes surrounded by the most stunning cave formations… there’s a small admission fee but totally worth it!
The capital of Bermuda – I’ve stayed in this area both times I’ve visited. Pastel-colored colonial buildings and high-end shopping, Hamilton is a hub of the island and is set against the beautiful Bermuda harbor. Grab a coffee and walk around! The pastel colors are so dreamy.
Worth the uphill trek! The unfinished church still stands from the 1800’s – incredible architecture with so much history.
The most popular beach in Bermuda, and for good reason! It is BEAUTIFUL. With blush pink sand and crystal blue water in the shape of a horseshoe (hence the name!) this beach is definitely worth exploring for a day.
One of my favorite parts of our trip was renting a private sailboat with Mad and spending a few hours in the middle of the ocean! A great way to take in the views — highly recommend.
The pink palace! Madison and I stayed here together and it was incredible. Our balcony had such a great view, and it’s in the perfect location for exploring the rest of the island. Friendliest staff, too!
Perched along the pink sand of Bermuda, this place is seriously SO dreamy. It has a lavish outdoor pool, stunning views and yummy dining options (the perfect combo). I love the chic set-up of Loren. On my list of where to stay next!
Newly renovated with neutral tones and elevated décor, Rosewood is one of the most sophisticated hotels on the island. Luxury defined! Some suites even come with fireplaces and wet bars. If anything, go for a drink or a spa day!
