Alluring pink-sand beaches, lovely landscapes with pastel-hued houses, and a relaxed vibe make Bermuda an ideal beach getaway. Its resorts and hotels offer private beaches, expansive golf courses, glossy marinas, beach clubs, and indulgent spas.

This 21-square-mile British territory in the North Atlantic Ocean experiences warm weather almost all year and is a short flight from U.S. Northeastern cities. Bermuda's top luxury resorts, family-friendly properties, and beach hotels are spread throughout the beautiful island in the parishes of Hamilton, Southampton, Pembroke, Smith's, and St. George's.

Hamilton, the capital of Bermuda, has an energetic, cosmopolitan feel, with may of its hotels located close to shops, restaurants, and museums. You'll find the most celebrated stretch of shoreline in Southampton, where hotels in other parishes have beach clubs close to the world-famous, crescent-shaped Horseshoe Bay Beach. Other popular areas of interest include Elbow Beach in Paget Parish and the laid-back village of Somerset in Northwest Bermuda (home of the iconic smallest drawbridge in the world).

Bermuda's hotels cater to families, adventure seekers, and honeymooners. This zika-free island is perfect for mothers-to-be considering a babymoon. Whether you are looking for a romantic getaway, a family get-together, or an outdoor-focused trip, Bermuda has it all. Relax on its pristine beaches, snorkel or dive its waters in search of shipwrecks and colorful marine life, explore its stunning caves, and more.
