The state with a thousand bridges
A vacation in Bermuda during your cruise means visiting an archipelago of over 300 islands of various sizes, 180 of which joined by roads and bridges.
And it is one of these roads, the South Road, one of the main roads of Bermuda, that leads to one of the most fascinating beaches you can visit in the capital: Elbow Beach, Coral Beach, Surf Side Beach: a route along coves and paths that meander in the vegetation and then open up onto the turquoise sea.
But just one excursion is not sufficient to visit the multitude of beaches that line these coasts, from the spectacular Horseshoes Bay Beach in Southampton Parish, a long stretch of fine, pink sand, to Jobson’s Cove, embraced by rocks and facing the transparent water.
But Tucker’s Town is the great attraction of the “the smallest of great places in the world” as Mark Twain defined it. Here on this private island you find the most luxurious properties. You cannot leave Bermuda without tasting two typical cocktails prepared in one of its bars facing the ocean: the Dark and Stormy: a quarter dark rum and three quarters ginger beer; and the Rum Swizzle: dark rum, lime and orange juice, sweetened with Falernum.
