In my mid 20's I took a two-week trip to Bermuda and it completely changed my life. Yes, I know, so basic. Truth be told, Bermuda stole my heart before my mind even knew it and I continue to return year after year. There's something about the beautiful pastel colored homes, all with white roofs of course, mixed with the incredible colors of the ocean that instantly calms my mind and lifts my spirits.
Fun facts About Bermuda:

Bermudians are incredibly nice.
As a tourist, you cannot rent a car, but you can rent a motorbike or a Twizzy.
They drive on the left side of the road.
It's the most expensive place in the world to live.
CHICKENS!! Due to hurricanes destroying many of the chicken coops, a lot of chickens have escaped. Now, they’re roaming the island free as a bird. Pun intended.
White rooftops. You will immediately notice everyone has a white roof. This is part of their water collecting system. And yes, the water is safe to drink.
People love to drink on da rock!
Bermuda beverages on the island are the ‘Rum Swizzle’ and ‘Dark n’ Stormy’.

HERE ARE THE PLANS YOU CAN CHOOSE FROM
Is it safe? Yes. Now, don’t get me wrong, Bermuda is just like any other place in this world. The most common crimes are theft of items in motorbikes, theft of unattended bags, and recreational drugs. As always, it's important to be aware of your surroundings, make sure you lock your bike up, and avoid leaving your things out in plain sight. As a solo female traveler, safety is always at the top of my list. If you’d like to read more of my personal safety tips for travelers, click here.
Just watch out for that triangle.
Honestly, every single beach is amazing. Here are a few of my favorites:
Warwick Long Bay Beach is my number one favorite. It's located close to Horseshoe Bay Beach, which is known for bringing in many tourists. Leaving Warwick Long Bay less crowded, just how I like it.
Admiralty House Park has something for everyone. You can explore the caves both above and below the ground, go cliff diving, snorkel, have a picnic, cookout, or just soak up the sun on one of the two beaches. You can also swim around to deep bay. Ironically, there is a shallow area where the catamarans come in with tours.
West Whale Bay Beach offers up a secluded feeling and it is a great spot for whale watching around Easter.
Church Bay is great to spend afternoon soaking up the sun, swimming, or snorkeling.
Clearwater, Turtle Bay, and Long Bay Beaches are all located next to one another right before Cooper's Island Nature Reserve. Beautiful beaches and during the summertime there’s a bar.
Horseshoe Bay Beach is a must-see beach and is often been ranked in the top 15 best beaches in the world. Beware: during high tourist season expect this beach to be packed with people.
There’s an amazing part of the beach all the way to the right that will make you feel as if you're in your own private location. Bask in the sun, swim, and let your inner adventurous child come out to climb all over the rocks.
There’s a bar and restrooms at this beach. After a long hard day of being in paradise, it’s location to grab a drink and relax to the lovely sound of the ocean.
The Fantasy & Crystal Cave tour is an excellent way to learn about the caves and their history. Last time I was there the prices were: $22 each or $30 for both caves.
Cathedral Cave (Free) is located on Grotto Bay Resort property. You'll notice that the entire island of Bermuda is a very at your own risk place. So, proceed with caution. Once you park, walk towards the water and stay towards the left. You’ll eventually see a small warning sign, that's the entrance. Careful on the steps, a flashlight would be helpful, and the water will be cold.
