Bermuda luxury holidays
With its powdery pink beaches, colonial charm and cerulean waters teeming with fish, Bermuda is proof that good things come in small packages. The North Atlantic isle, which is ideal for a luxury holiday, avoids the hustle and bustle of the Caribbean, which lies more than 500 miles to its south, but retains a feeling of seclusion and exclusivity.
In the course of a luxury holiday to Bermuda, stroll the streets of St George's to get a feel for the colonial heritage here; browse the artefacts at the Tucker House Museum, tour the Bermuda Perfumery and lunch on lobster or curried conch by the waterside.
Soak up the sun on Horseshoe Bay, Elbow Beach and John Smith's Bay or snorkel at Tobacco Bay. Elsewhere, slip below the crystal clear water to dive the wrecks that litter the coast here.
Alternatively, amble the walkways at the Spittal Pond Nature Reserve, explore the Crystal Caves to see vast stalagmites and stalactites or take in the quaintly English afternoon teas and cricket matches that take place alongside the defiantly Caribbean style calypso and reggae shows.
