Pink-sand beaches, plentiful wreck and unique coral reef dive and snorkel sites, pastel-colored houses, and a chill vibe all make Bermuda a perfect destination for booking a resort getaway. Located in the North Atlantic Ocean, this 21-square-mile island is a British territory and just a short flight from Northeastern U.S. cities like New York and Boston.

There are resorts for all styles and budget of travelers in Bermuda, whether you are on a family vacation or looking for a honeymoon retreat. Resorts are spread out across the island's many parishes. Bermuda's South Shore is home to its best pink- and white-sand beaches, including its most famed stretch of sand, the crescent-shaped Horseshoe Bay Beach. Many resorts have beach clubs for guests on the South Shore if they are not located on it.

Other popular places to visit include the cosmopolitan capital of Hamilton, which is home to some of the island's most exclusive 5-star properties, as well as shops, restaurants, and museums; Paget Parish, where you'll find more moderately priced properties, as well as pretty Elbow Beach; and the relaxed village of Somerset on Bermuda's northwest coast. Here is our list of Bermuda's best resorts.
