Photo Tour: Journey to Bermuda
The pink sand and rocking surf at Horseshoe Bay, one of Bermuda’s most beautiful beaches
“You go to heaven if you want to, I’d rather stay right here in Bermuda” —Mark Twain
Long thought of an island, Bermuda is actually an archipelago of more than 180 smaller landmasses. The pink sand, championship golf courses and a GPS that’s smack dab in the middle of the North Atlantic, west of North Carolina (or about 1,200 miles due south of Nova Scotia), make it a quick and easy getaway for Canadians.
But Bermuda is undergoing somewhat of a reinvention of sorts, eschewing a stiff upper lip reputation for its more sporty, sexy offerings. It goes beyond pink sand and golf: there’s a multi-generational, multi-cultural mix that’s seen in Hamilton’s hottest restaurants, hotels and nightclubs. There’s a laid-back, yet sophisticated, all-ages appeal to the place, but still has its somewhat British-roots reserve, suitable for a slightly more refined sensibility.
