Bermuda Weekend Feb 2014

Hubby and I are just back from an incredible weekend in Bermuda. We were a bit concerned about traveling in the off-season, but it was an excellent decision. No crowds to speak of, nearly perfect weather (~70 degrees, only one quick rainstorm, warm enough to splash in the ocean during the day), and a great deal on our hotel. Although we had just two full days on the island, we got to see everything at the top of our list -- St. George, the caves, Spittal Pond Nature Reserve, and Horseshoe Bay beach, plus tried a bunch of great restaurants in Hamilton. More details/photos here:

Her blog says the Royal Palms was her hotel.

Wonderful trip report on my favorite island! Just the dose of Bermuda to cure this grey winter mood. Thank you for posting.

Used to love Bermuda, but the recent 50% increase in taxi fares (which were already horrendously expensive on an island where you can't rent a car and where ferries and buses seem to flash strike on a regular basis!) combined with the new reports that the most beautiful beaches, when the wind is blowing 'the wrong way' are polluted with 'grease wrapped turds' as a result of untreated human waste being pumped directly into the sea from both Hamilton and King Edward Hospital have put end to my visits there. Disgusting, both on a yucch level and for harming our planet without conscience. Many lovely alternatives where the costs are more reasonable -- especially for meals and hotels -- and where money spent is really helping the local economy and therefore valued.

Everyone's experiences are different. In my experience I have never seen waste on the beaches as you describe nor have I ever been inconvenienced by a transportation strike. The last thing Bermuda's small, narrow roads need is visitors in rental cars. I hope that policy doesn't change. The taxi fares are high, no difference of opinion there. But I rely on public transportation and get around just fine. For me Bermuda is still a beautiful, quiet place to go.
