Bermuda Highlighted By Both Telegraph & Forbes

April 13, 2016

Two major international publications have taken the time to tout Bermuda as a travel destination, with the Telegraph ranking Bermuda at number 25 on a list of the “world’s best countries,” and Forbes sharing with its readers “why Bermuda is the ultimate island escape.”

The Telegraph story says, “Quiet, sedate Bermuda is not the most exciting island in the world, but it charms Telegraph readers who rate it higher than the Bahamas and most Caribbean islands. With the Americas Cup being held off-shore here in 2017, its profile is likely to rise sharply.”

The Forbes story says “I’m going to come right out and say it. Bermuda is simply the ultimate [and easily accessible] island escape for anyone who lives on the east coast. And it’s a must-visit destination for everyone else

“First of all, flights on all the major airlines from the East Coast are generally pretty affordable. And Bermuda is the only gloriously-British-drive-on-the-left-hand-side-of-the-narrow-road overseas territory that combines island charm, English sophistication, a temperate climate, palm trees, and impossibly blue water that’s only a short 2 hour flight from NYC, Boston, or Washington DC.

“Of course, it has the famous pink sand beaches, exclusive golf courses, high-end resorts, and shopping that this tiny island about 650 miles off the coast of North Carolina has always been known for. But as I found out during a recent, 4-day-long visit, Bermuda is also the site of the 2017 America’s Cup and is way more hip, and active, and exciting than you’d ever imagine.

“Bermuda is also a well-known destination for sailors [I’ve actually sailed across the Gulf Stream to Bermuda from New England many times]. But now that I’ve toured Oracle Team USA’s base, and even worked out with the guys that are the defending America’s Cup champs, I can say from first hand experience, that the America’s Cup is turning Bermuda into the epicenter of all that is “hip” in the ultra-exclusive world of high-performance hydrofoil sailing.

“The America’s Cup is also attracting other world-class sailors to Bermuda. I had a chance to watch the high-performance RC44 class racing on the Great Sound while I was there, and many other high-profile regattas are planned leading up to the big event next year.”
