Visit Bermuda – Weather

Bermuda is in the Atlantic, so the best weather temperatures are in the summer months from May to October.  Temperatures are pleasant from December to April, but not quite hot enough for swimming then.  Bermuda is on the exit route for hurricanes that have circled through the Caribbean in the fall.  So, it can get rainy tropical storms then, but not hurricanes.

Visit Bermuda – Transportation

About 75% of the visitors to Bermuda are from the United States.  Visitors arrive at LF Wade International Airport from many cities on the east coast of the United States.  There are also direct flights from Canada and London.  Cruise ships typically come from New York.  They dock in St George’s or Hamilton.  These ports are very close to each other.  Small cruise ships can dock in downtown Hamilton, but larger ships will tie up at King’s Wharf a few miles from town.

Visit Bermuda – Background

Bermuda includes over 180 very small islands with a total area of about 20 square miles.  About 60,000 people live permanently in Bermuda.   The largest island is about 20 miles long.  It includes the capital of St George’s and the city of Hamilton.  These two cities are joined by a causeway.  Bermuda is like a Caribbean island, but it’s about 600 miles east of North Carolina in the Atlantic.  So, it’s a long way from the Caribbean.  Juan de Bermúdez claimed Bermuda for Spain n 1505, but it’s been British since 1609.  Bermuda is well known as being part of the Bermuda triangle where strange disappearances of water and aircraft have been popularized.  It is also famous for Bermuda shorts.  Bermuda shorts are often worn by business men in combination with dress shirts, dress shoes and ties.
