For something close, yet so far away, try Bermuda vacation rentals. Located 650 miles east of North Carolina in the Atlantic, the island is surrounded by a coral reef, home to thousands of brightly colored fish and numerous shipwrecks. Naturally, snorkeling and diving are very popular in spots like Elbow Beach in Paget Parish. Go kayaking and yachting in the waters off Southampton Parish. Visit the town of St. George, designated a World Heritage Site. Photograph and marvel at the many historic houses, forts, churches, check out scent making at the Perfumery or visit the Royal Naval Dockyard. Sunbathe on the incredible pink sand beaches, golf, go hiking, or view wildlife at nature reserves, and splash among dolphins at the Bermuda Maritime Museum. When the sun sets, get ready for theatre productions, dance troupes, musical performances – or see a movie or attend one of Bermuda’s many daily special events. There’s plenty of shopping available, and don’t miss the chance to pick up unique handcrafted gold trinkets, cedar wood gifts and – of course – Bermuda shorts.
