AFAR Features Bermuda Travel Guide

January 19, 2015

Featuring a look at local businesses, scenic pools, dining opportunities, and general adventure, AFAR – which dubs itself as “the experiential travel guide” – has published “The AFAR Guide to Bermuda.”

The guide opens by saying, “Families, friends, and honeymooners revel in the romance, refinement, and relaxation of Bermuda. From the British colonial character of St. George’s and the lively harbor of Hamilton to the maritime history at the Royal Naval Dockyard, Bermuda offers a wealth of surprises.”


“Comprising more than 180 islands and islets, the archipelago is nearly all shoreline, and its most famous feature is its rosy sand. The pink hue comes from millions of tiny shelled organisms, tossed and turned by waves, broken down, and mixed with soft white sand.

“Offshore reefs protect the beaches from Gulf Stream swells, making for gentle swimming, snorkeling, and kayaking conditions year-round.”

AFAR’s “A Proper Introduction to Bermuda”:

The piece goes on to focus on local business, including TABS Bermuda Shorts, owned by Rebecca Hanson.

About TABS, the AFAR guide says, “Born and bred Bermudian Rebecca Hanson has taken the island’s iconic article of clothing, Bermuda shorts, and given them a colorful, contemporary makeover at her company TABS [the Authentic Bermuda Shorts].

“Once you have your own pair, you may wonder where to show off your purchase as you head in search of Proper Fun on the island.”
