Bermuda is undoubtedly known for it’s pink sands. However, it is not just beaches. It’s rich in history and culture, including it’s architecture. Bermuda has about as many churches as it has bars, scattered across the island. Each baring a unique look.
The church above is found in the city of Hamilton. It seems to depict the island well, with it’s pink exterior.
If you enjoy architecture, Bermuda has some beautiful gems. Including the unfinished church in St. George’s.
These are just two examples of the wide array of churches that are found on the island. You can easily get lost in the beauty of the Bermudian architecture.
Bermuda is known for its pink sands for a reason. It’s important to take time to visit their magnificent beaches. However, don’t overlook the rest of the island and all that it has to offer.
Bermuda was our first trip as husband and wife (our honeymoon). It was also the first trip we took with our Cannon camera.
I can not do this place justice with mere photos or words. For us, Bermuda was paradise, in fact I often say that I left a piece of my heart there. The magic of this island hasn’t worn off in 2.5 years, I hope to return as soon as financially possible. But, I will commence with my feelings, and explain why this place is a must see.
Bermuda is known for its pink beaches. If you’d like to know why the sand is pink, I suggest reading “Our unique pink sand” from the Royal Gazette. The beaches are magnificent, and this is coming from someone who rarely get’s in the water. I surprised my husband on this trip, by actually enjoying the warmth of Bermuda’s waters (unlike the cold waters of Jersey, a more local commute for me). But, although the beaches are amazing, that’s not all Bermuda has to offer. There’s deep and interesting history, I recommend St. George’s and the Royal Navy Dockyard. There are also underground caves to tour, shops, museums and an aquarium/ zoo. It’s really incredible what you can accomplish in only 22 miles (the length of the island).
Since we knew we might not be able to have this experience again, anytime soon, we busied our week trying to see “everything.” Quite honestly, I could do a write up on every location. However, I won’t make this into a novel, instead I will offer you my advice. If you’re interested in visiting Bermuda and you’re looking for a few recommendations comment below.
