|Technically, Bermuda is not "IN" in the Caribbean...but...we have
grouped it together here with other exotic island locations.
Mom and Dad spent a week cruise to Bermuda on their 20th
wedding anniversary trip in 2005.
Mom also visited Bermuda on a cruise with her friend Abby in
1999 as part of a Seminar at Sea for travel agents.
Bermuda is filled with beaches of light pink sand (a natural
element from the coral) and many are quiet, peaceful and fun to
explore. When we went to John Smith's Bay, we were the only
ones as it is located near a residential area. Again, at Church
Bay, there was only one other family (well, you do have to be
brave to jump the "Do Not Trespass" barricade and climb down
cliffs instead of stairs taken away by the last hurricane.
We visited by cruise boat....which is like a floating hotel.
We got off the cruise ship and took a bus. The local
transportation system is great and easy to learn
I would not recommend renting scooters....there are simply too
many accidents. You CANNOT rent a car due to local regulations
