I fell in love with Bermuda more than 25 years ago, and I can still remember the first time I set foot upon the island. I also remember that first flight in over the reef: the turquoise blue of the deep ocean, the emerald shallows, and then the verdant greens, pastel colors and glistening whites on the islands proper. Magical does not describe that first glimpse of Bermuda from the air. There's something very special about this little group of islands. I've lost count of the number of times I've visited the Bermuda; it's addictive, an experience you'll never forget, and I've been writing about it for as long as I can remember. Whether it's the combination of the English culture and its sub-tropical setting, or something else, Bermuda is, in my opinion, one of the most beautiful places on Earth. Bermuda, one of the world's smallest countries, is a tiny world with a tiny capital city, Hamilton, and shops, churches and cafes on narrow streets that might well have been plucked from any one of a hundred little English towns. The old-world cathedral, the bright red British pillar boxes (post boxes), and the food, especially afternoon tea - an almost religious experience in Bermuda - all seem to make Bermuda even more British than England itself. Nowhere in England, however, will you find anything that can compare to the pink sandy beaches, the crystal ocean waters, or the beautiful island terrain. You have to see it to believe it. Today, the island of Bermuda welcomes visitors from around the world, and it will welcome you too. You can spend a week, or two, or more, at one of the expensive luxury resort hotels, or perhaps one of small cottage colonies; or you can choose to stay at one of a hundred neat little bed & breakfast homes, guest houses or all-inclusive hotels, or you might like to choose from one of the many self-catering options. Just about every budget is catered for, and you're sure to find something to suit your taste, and your wallet. You can do six nights, seven days on the islands for as little as $1,250 U.S. per person, or you can pay that much, or more, per night. Whatever your budget, you're sure of a wonderful experience.
