Book Description

12 Jun 2014
This is the 4th edition of the Visitor's Guide to Bermuda. It has been updated; new photos and maps have been added and the maps have been enlarged for better viewing. If you're planning a visit to Bermuda, or if you've booked a cruise to the island, you'll find this book a valuable resource. Within these pages you'll find all the In-depth information you'll need about Bermuda to make your trip a success, including: Things to do in Bermuda Where to Stay - Resorts, Small Hotels, Guest Houses and Self-Catering Cottages How to get Around Bermuda: Bus routes, Ferries, mopeds; Bus & Ferry Schedules and maps are included Bermuda's Beaches and Parks Hiking - and the Bermuda Railway Trail Fishing, Boating and Snorkeling Scuba Diving - Detailed descriptions of the shipwrecks Touring the Island Paris by Parish Practical Visitor Information And Much More Bermuda is s a quiet world of pastel-colored buildings with snowy-white roofs surrounded by emerald waters and pink, sandy beaches. 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. Blair Howard is a travel writer, author, and professional photographer specializing in vacation travel, golf travel, and golf course photography. He has been writing about Bermuda for more than 25 years. Beyond Bermuda, his travels take him throughout the United States, Europe and the Caribbean playing golf, writing about his experiences, and photographing the golf courses he visits.

3.0 out of 5 stars OK, but a little old fashioned 4 Feb 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This guide is written by someone who clearly loves the island but its obvious the hanker for the old days of dress etiquette when it comes to dining and being out on the street.... Evening dresses to go to dinner? not is out experience.
But the author does take you around the island with obvious and well deserved passion. I wish the people coming off the cruise ships would use guides like this to learn a little about the island before stepping ashore.

2.0 out of 5 stars Don't bother with this guide 29 Nov 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The layout is awful with amateur photos. It managed to put us off going to Bermuda altogether! Nothing like as good as lonely planet guides.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good handbook; high on general info, low on historical background 13 May 2013
By Joanna M. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a very good, lightweight overview of Bermuda and will come in very handy for first time and repeat visitors. Those seeking information on beaches, golf and diving will find it very helpful as the author goes into great details on those topics. While there is some background, particularly on the early "explorers" (accidental, it seems, due to the propensity of sailing vessels to become stranded there), there is not a whole lot of in-depth back story of the islands. I would have liked to learn more of the native settlers (where they came from), how they managed to eke out an existence on a somewhat hostile land, what provoked more Europeans to come there to live, etc etc. More photos, in color, would have been nice. But I suppose there are other books that would highlight more of the historical aspects I am seeking.

As a reference guide, it is very well written and you can tell how much the author enjoys this destination. I appreciated the "homey" style in which it is written, much like a nice long letter one would have written back in the day when travelers on holiday wrote to their friends and family back home. I like that his "two cents" is offered, particularly with regard to restaurants and accommodations.

The only other negatives I have (besides the lack of color photos) are: Not ONE page in my copy of the book has a page number printed on it! There is a table of contents with page numbers listed, but leafing through the book = no page numbers at all! (fortunately it's a slim enough book that you can eventually find what you're looking for) The other is that it's loaded with typos. Apparently the "percent" symbol was not available on whatever keyboard was used to type this; no where does it appear (one example: when stating the population, it gave a breakdown of white versus black, and the percentage symbol failed to print but I understood what it meant; there were several other instances where " % " was missing but, again, I understood) Date issues: A date of 1503 is given for Juan Bermudez's arrival there then went on to say that "six years later....." and the date of 1609 is given. So, which is it? Was 1503 supposed to be 1603 or was 1609 supposed to be 1509? There is also a number of misspelled words that could have easily been caught by spell-check or more thorough proof read.

Overall, I gave it 4 stars because 3.5 wasn't an available option. It's helpful and informative and written by someone who obviously loves visiting Bermuda and loves sharing it. If you want a quick reference guide, you will find this a good choice (and you can easily number the pages if your copy needs it!) If you want much more in-depth history, background, flora/fauna, you will do better with a different book as this one merely scratches those surfaces - enough to satisfy the average tourist. It's also light enough to easily tuck into your carry-on bag so you can travel with it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bermuda Bound, Then Check it Out 16 Aug 2013
By Stephen Shane Sharp - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
The Visitor's Guide to Bermuda is a solid, concise and informative handbook for a trip to Bermuda. The author's passions comes through, especially when it comes to golf, dining, sight seeing and diving.

What struck me out of the gate:

"Bermuda is not a single island at all, but a great, fishhook-shaped atoll of more than 180 small islands ..."

An amazing place, no doubt.

The photos are color, many of them brilliantly so,and taken from a photographer's POV.

There are chapters on the history and economy as well.

A must for anyone headed to the island -- well -- islands!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great guide 16 Aug 2013
By M Weston - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I am looking to take a holiday in Bermuda and came across this book. And I'm very glad I did! Forget the Lonely Planet.... You get everything you need to know in this book for a very low price. It is extremely detailed with information on absolutely everything including where to stay, restaurants, activities, weather, climate, attractions. A great book!

4.0 out of 5 stars Helpful and Enthusiastic Guide 25 Dec 2013
By Betsy Malloy - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
The thing I like the most about this book is how much the author likes the place. It's evident within the first few pages and is a refreshing change of pace from other guidebooks, which can be so neutral that they're unhelpful. It includes lot of helpful advice to help trip planners get ready and includes frank, balanced reviews of a select set of hotels.

On the downside, I would have liked to see a few maps - although those are easy enough to find elsewhere.

5.0 out of 5 stars BeenThere 6 Sep 2013
By Photoenthusiast - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
In utilizing this Guide - I felt as if I had a personal assistant - even though Virtual, I was able to apply direction and understanding from a First persons perspective. It is truly amazing how the writer's personal experience and guidance was easy for myself to navigate through the land minds of limited time and places to see. I truly recommend this book to anyone who has traveled or will be traveling to this exotic paradise as so described within the books contents.
