Found in the midst of the North Atlantic Ocean, Bermuda is an often-overlooked treasure trove of sun, sand and seafood. It’s an island filled to bursting with flavour and good vibes, and it’s waiting for you with a cool glass of its famous rum. Resorts in Bermuda provide a truly authentic taste of island life, which will leave you wanting more. |
Rum in the Sunshine
A trip to Bermuda wouldn’t be complete without sampling the island’s many different kinds of rum. Most famous, and my personal favourite, is Gosling’s rum, and it makes the perfect end to a day spent in paradise. If you’re made of stronger stuff, try Black Seal Rum. With its alcohol content of 75.5%, your taste buds will certainly remember this one for a while.
For something a little gentler but just as tasty, Barritt’s Bermuda Stone Ginger Beer is the perfect accompaniment to the sunshine. Resorts in Bermuda enjoy long sunny days, so it’s important to stay cool. If you’re a coffee aficionado, be sure to combat the heat with Devil’s Isle Coffee. With its hand-roasted beans, this blend is an experience for your palate from start to finish.
Seafood and Eat It
As an island, one of Bermuda’s freshest sources of food is the sea. Fish and seafood make up a key portion of Bermudan diets, and these sumptuous dishes are unmissable. First on your list to try should be fish chowder, Bermuda’s signature dish. Made with ground fish heads, salt pork, onions, tomatoes, herbs and rum, this spicy soup is the defining flavour of the island.
Don’t miss out on the Jamaican influence on the island. Grills and barbequing are a popular cooking style across all resorts, bringing a whole new dimension of smoky flavour to the local produce. Alongside seafood, experience mouth-watering dishes of chicken, beef and pork. Paired perfectly with a glass of rum, you’ll want to take the taste home with you.
Most importantly, Bermuda knows how to do dessert. From Alex & Pete’s artisan ice creams to sweet potato pudding, you’ll be spoilt for choice of sweet treats.
If, like me, you’re desperate to travel to paradise, here’s my top tip. Resorts in Bermuda are very hard to choose between, but Hamilton Princess & Beach Club trumps them all. With a gourmet restaurant that overlooks stunning waterfront views, you can try all the local dishes at this luxury hotel.
