Why I Love Bermuda

I knew Bermuda would be nice, but I thought it is one of the most amazingly beautiful place I'd ever visited!  The people are so friendly as well. Needless to say I really enjoyed vacationing there!  I thought it would be my one and only trip there, but I thought I'd found paradise.

***I am so unhappy with these photos I took three years ago that I'm looking into going back to Bermuda to take some better ones as I write this post***

Here are a few photos that I'm afraid do not do justice to this lovely island. 

The pink sand beaches are stunning!

The below photos are of a "blue lagoon" type of area that is part of Horseshoe Bay Beach in Bermuda.  My photos don't do it justice.  the sand is a peachy pink color and the water is bright aqua blue.  It is also the perfect temperature! 
 Horseshoe Bay Beach which is ranked in the top 10 in the world!

I received several e-mails and comments from people saying they were interested or planning a visit to Bermuda after my past posts.  Everyone we talked to while there said pretty much the same thing: "I think I've found paradise".  Many people said they had traveled to Thailand, Bali and other destinations much further away, but felt Bermuda was just as beautiful!

Bermuda has an affluent economy, with finance as its largest sector followed by tourism giving it the world's highest GDP per capita in 2005. It has a subtropcal climate.

Bermuda is a volcanic sea mountain that formed from the mid-Atlantic ridge approximately 100 million years ago.
I was VERY impressed with the hotel we stayed at called The Fairmont Southhampton pictured below.  Although you can walk to the beach, Most agreed that taking the 2 minute trolley like the one pictured below is for the best since it is so mountainous.  The trolley runs every 5-10 minutes so there is never a wait.  Even though this is a 4 and a half star hotel, they are always great deals. There are many restaurants on the property and the service was top notch!  We were told by a taxi driver that there are no hotels right on the beach except a few cottages.

Below is Front Street.  It is very clean and pretty I thought.  I wish I would have known that most of the stores close at 5:00 PM.  That might be a good thing since most of the stores looked very nice featuring names like Prada, Escada, Gucci, and Louis Vuitton.

I love flowers and everywhere you look you see beautiful trees and plants like these:
