Bermuda Listed In 21 Best Places To Go In 2021

January 2, 2021 | 11 Comments

Bermuda has been included in Condé Nast Traveler’s “21 Best Places To Go In 2021″ list, with the article noting our ‘sherbet-colored Bermuda shorts,’ rum swizzle, the African Diaspora Heritage Trail and more.

The article on Condé Nast Traveler said, “In putting together our list of the best places to go in 2021, we were faced with factors we’d never had to consider before. After a year marked by grounded planes, closed borders, and mandatory quarantines, it felt key to have a 2021 list that is equal parts realistic and inspirational.

“No matter where you’re dreaming of, one thing’s for sure: We may not have jetted around much in 2020, but our appetite for travel—and eagerness to get back on the road—hasn’t waned a bit.”

As it pertains to Bermuda, the article said: “The British Empire’s colonization of Bermuda in 1612 still lingers today, from the sherbet-colored Bermuda shorts and knee-length socks to passionate conversations about cricket over rum swizzle.

“But there’s an increasing number of experiences that speak to the diasporic history of the island and celebrate Bermuda’s Black culture, with new initiatives focusing on Black travelers.

“An online hub spotlights Black entrepreneurs, including street art tours and restaurants like Art Mels Spicy Dicy, and island-wide itineraries and historic stops along the African Diaspora Heritage Trail.

The story notes the new airport terminal building and says, “the two-story oceanfront building is designed to minimize environmental impact, with several standout elements like outdoor terraces with ocean views and a nature trail that is open to all, including those without departure tickets.”

“Also making its debut in April is the St. Regis Bermuda, which will open in St. George’s, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, bringing luxury to a previously undeveloped corner of the island.

“Bermudian white roofs and seafoam green painted shutters will pay homage to the island’s style, but it’s the vivid turquoise water at the resort’s location on St. Catherine’s Beach that’s sure to steal the show.”

    Bermuda is too over rated and over priced. More goverment propaganda to try and stimulate tourists minds.

    • Joe Bloggs says:

      I suggest you go home, where it is presumably not too over-rated or over-priced.

    I would never ask anyone to visit Bermuda because there is a little to do and little to see. If going to the beach is all you want, there are way better places to go with resorts that would shame Bermuda. As most of my friends say…hey where is the pink sand? Yes, those posters are heavily photoshopped. Also, with bus service always go out of service for every little thing- it’s time to get expats to drive the buses. The BIU is a joke not wanting to work because of Covid-19. Where I live the bus drivers in the city had created a barrier using shower curtains to protect themselves from anyone who may have covid. Must be nice working for a job with BIU membership!

      “Bermuda is the right country for a jaded man to loaf in. There are no harassments; the deep peace and quiet of the country sink into one’s body and bones and give his conscience a rest and chloroform the legion of invisible small devils that are always trying to whitewash his hair.” – Mark Twain 1877

      Thank you for your support of our beloved islands.

    Re:Aaron
    The reason we come to BDA every year is because ” there is little to do” …and there is a lot to see.
    We don;t want to mayhem and over packed beaches and cities you’d fine in other islands.
    BDA is peaceful, colorful, friendly and beautiful…not to mention safe.

    If you don’t like living there then I will gladly trade places with you . You can have my house here in the states – where it’s 25* and raining/snowing now, and there are 2 or 3 shootings/murders every morning on the news. Try dealing with the morning speeders and road rage, traffic jams, potholes and congestion here every day and see if you come to appreciate how fortunate you are living there.

      You come here 1 week, maybe 2, each year. Perhaps that’s all you can afford. You don’t see the everyday life here, you see Bermuda through the “vacation filter.” We appreciate you coming here, for that week or two. Living here year round is much different, on many levels, though. Just sayin’.

    • PBanks says:

      Unfortunately we have to deal with road rage and shoddy road conditions here too, but thanks for the kind words about Bermuda, Rick.

    • Joe Bloggs says:

      Dear Rick,

      Thank you for supporting Bermuda through the years. People like you are the best tourism advert we could possibly have.

      Please also forgive “trufth” for what he or she says. I do not know what makes “trufth” so negative, but please be assured that such negativity is very un-Bermudian.

    I lived and worked in Bermuda for 22 years from 1990 to 2012 I miss it every day and wish I could have stayed for ever. I have travelled the world and seen may beautiful places but there is nowhere I would rather be. I have been back 9 times since leaving and can’t wait to go back again.
