Bermuda has once again been voted “Best Island in the Caribbean/Atlantic” by readers of Condé Nast Traveler magazine.
The awards appear in the November issue [on newsstands today in New York and Los Angeles] and are derived from the Condé Nast Traveler 25th Annual Readers’ Choice survey. This year a record 46,476 readers participated in the survey and Bermuda received high marks for its scenery, friendliness and ambiance.
One reader cited Bermuda for its, “…endless activities: historical sites, golf, scooters, superb shopping and dining, museums, gardens, perfumeries and aquariums, too!” while others noted the island’s “fun blend of British, American, and Caribbean Culture,” and “pink sand beaches and aqua blue waters.”
In addition to Bermuda’s top island honour, several Bermuda resort properties were once more ranked highly in the Readers’ Choice poll including The Reefs, which was again voted favorite resort in the Atlantic.
Other Bermuda properties among the “Top 12 Resorts in The Atlantic” were: Pink Beach Club (3rd), Rosewood Tucker’s Point (5th), Cambridge Beaches (8th), and Fairmont Southampton (10th).
“It is a tremendous honour for Bermuda to be selected by Condé Nast Traveler’s discerning readers as the number one travel destination among all of the Atlantic and Caribbean islands,” said Minister of Business Development and Tourism Wayne Furbert.
“The magazine’s readers are known to be frequent and highly sophisticated travelers and their award shows that Bermuda indeed has so much more to offer. It is a testament to our wonderful Bermudian people and our fantastic resort partners that our island is considered so favourably.”
