My mom had a work trip planned to Bermuda, and my dad, my brother and I decided to tag along. Conveniently, it was also my birthday. Our family loves warm destinations, and Bermuda in October is perfect. It’s the trifecta for a great destination: beautiful landscapes, exciting adventures and scrumptious food.
Adventure junkies should be sure to try a catamaran excursion with Rising Son Cruises. On our tour, we first snorkeled and then we got to jump off a couple of cliffs into the ocean. What’s more, to get to the cliffs, we had to go through a dark cave. The tour guides told us that the area was once used to fire cannons against enemy fleets.
I also love food, and at Newstead Belmont Hills Golf Resort & Spa, where we stayed, the meals were exquisite. If you’re at the hotel, ask to meet chef Jean Claude Garzia — he received the Meilleur Ouvrier De France, one of the highest honors for a chef in France. I also recommend that you go to the Royal Navy Dockyard and eat at Bonefish Bar & Grill. Its signature homemade burger was amazing, and the Shirley Temple will satisfy your taste buds. Don’t miss the seafood in Bermuda either — the fish and lobster tacos were tasty.
The beauty of Bermuda is incredible: The crystal-clear waters filled with fish are a thrill to swim in, and the bright-blue sky is perfect. I can’t wait to go back and see all the other things the island has to offer.
