Bermuda Yacht Charter Guide
The peaceful fish hook of sand that is Bermuda is a glittering speck in the Atlantic Ocean. Hundreds of miles from mainland USA or the Caribbean, here you can indulge in the ultimate escapism. Sailing through sparkling turquoise waters on your private charter yacht you will be met by spectacular pink sand beaches backed with granite rocks, punctuated with the striking red of hibiscus flowers. Bermuda is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful islands in the world. With 181 islets, the best way to explore the archipelago is by boat charter. Discover secluded coves and shipwrecks that teem with a kaleidoscope of tropical fish, then step ashore to visit immaculate colorful gardens and the boutiques and restaurants of King’s Wharf. If you’re looking for an island paradise, Mark Twain summed it up when he said of Bermuda – “you go to heaven if you like, I’ll stay here”.
Key Cruising Areas: As well as its busier hubs, Bermuda is home to several isolated small beaches and coves, so explore and make the most of the accessibility that your private yacht offers to see this stunning cruising ground.
Don’t Miss: One of the most breath-taking views in Bermuda is underground. The subterranean crystal caves that were formed in the ice age and said by Mark Twain to be “The most beautiful cave in the world, I suppose” are an awe-inspiring sight. The emerald water of the crystal lakes casts shimmering reflections onto the rock formations giving the caves an ethereal beauty that simply has to be experienced.
Best Spots for Wining and Dining: With abundant fresh produce, a mixture of cultural influences and locals with an appreciation for good food, it is perhaps unsurprising that the island fits a huge number of restaurants onto its tiny landmass. The selection of restaurants, however, is sure to surprise and you can find almost any global cuisine. The area around Hamilton Harbor is particularly good for eating – stroll along the waterfront and you won’t be disappointed wherever you choose to stop. Beau Rivage serves authentic French food with a stunning view – the highlight is the crème brulee.
Local Culture: The historic churches, estates, museums and colourful festivals of Bermuda tell the tales of the country’s past, welcoming cultures from around the globe. A walk around Georgetown is a step back in time as you stroll around 17th century architecture, cobbled streets and historic churches. Visit the National Trust Museum and Fort St. Catherine for an interesting insight into the country’s role in the civil war.
Best Beach: The iconic pink beaches of Bermuda are most striking in the south. The pristine sands and seemingly endless ocean of Elbow Beach are a must see, and the beach has a very good premier resort. Visit in the afternoon to spend some hours relaxing and swimming, and stay for the sunset to watch the pink sands turn gorgeous red in the low light.
IYC recommends: Spend a day in Church Bay. While the crystal-clear waters of Bermuda make for excellent diving at many sites, the sea at Church Bay is one of the best for snorkelling. An easy swim out to a series of reefs will find you surrounded by a myriad of brightly colored tropical fish. Relax on the beach surrounded by impressive rock formations, sifting through the pink sand to find multi colored sea glass, then head back to your yacht to watch a beautiful sunset with a cocktail in hand.
