6 Things I Loved in Bermuda
This time last year, I was in Bermuda with my bestie. We spent three sun-filled days exploring the island. And although we both travel quite a bit, it was the first visit for both of us. Here are six highlights from the trip.
Driving a Twizy. We had so much fun driving this tiny car around the island. I’m an awful driver, but Jackie hadn’t been behind the wheel in years, so she navigated while I drove on the opposite side (to us!) of the road. We stopped at beautiful beaches and for a great fish sandwich.
The beaches. The beaches in Bermuda are stunning, and you can visit them for free. The pink sand is perfect for picnics and sunbathing and the crystal-clear waters are made for afternoon swims (though it was a bit cold during our visit). You'll find at least 18 public beaches on the island (and even more hidden coves), but we especially loved Horseshoe Bay Beach, Elbow Beach, and Church Bay
The Swizzles. You can find this signature boozy ru, beverage in just about every restaurant, each with their own recipe. We made it our mission to sample a few.
Bermuda is a British island territory and I loved spending a few hours at The Bermuda Perfumery where afternoon high tea includes finger sandwiches, petit fours, and scones—all served with local honey, jam, and chantilly cream. You can have it in the pretty courtyard or historic perfumery, where individual scents can be crafted and bottled.
TABS. This super cute and preppy shop is home to the original Bermuda short. We each bought our husbands a pair of swim trucks and Nate is obsessed with his; it has an eye-catching but classic nautical pattern.
Finally, lounging by the pool at The Loren hotel. We stayed at this property, and the swimming pool was gorgeous. It overlooked the ocean and was bathwater warm, which was so nice as the weather was a bit chilly for playing in the ocean.
