My husband and I decided to book a trip to Bermuda. We left on Friday and came home on Tuesday. It was the perfect little get away. We rented an Airbnb in Hamilton Parrish on the Hamilton sound, and rented mopeds from Oleander Cycles to get around.
We left Richmond at 6:40 am and got to Boston a little after 8 am. Richmond doesn’t have very many direct flights so you get used to layovers. We flew Delta. They are our preferred airline. Maybe not always the cheapest but their customer service is 👌🏻, and when you fly often this is important. At least to us. We left Boston around 10:30 and landed in Bermuda by 1:30pm. It was an easy one hour flight. Bermuda is one hour ahead of east coast time.
The apartment we rented was stunning. Very clean and modern. And our host was very responsive. We paid about $200 a night which is very reasonable considering the location and how much space we had.
Our moped were not scheduled to be dropped off until 4 pm and we were starving, so we decided to make the ten minute walk to the Swizzle Inn.
And of course we had to get the mandatory “Swizzle Inn Swagger Out” tshirts.
Our mopeds arrived around 4pm and ergot a brief lesson before we were sent on our way. Bermuda doesn’t allow rental cars so you can either rent a moped, take the bus, or get a taxi. We wanted the freedom to come and go as we pleased so we rented mopeds.
It is unnerving at first. The roads are narrow and curvy. We started with two single seaters but ended up with a double because my husband wanted to drive faster then I wanted to go. We rented from Oleander Cycles and they were easy to work with. The delivered the mopeds and picked them up. They were very accommodating when we decided to switch to a two seater in the middle of the Day.
We ended the day with checking out Tucker’s Point. It’s a golf community that’s right on the beach about 8 minutes from our Airbnb.
We are a delicious breakfast and had a gorgeous view. This resort is stunning. We went down on the beach after breakfast and the parrot fish came right up to us.
The formations are stunning. It is a guided tour so you get the history and background of the caves.
Bermuda was the prettiest place I have been. And everyone is so hospitable. I ran the old railway trail every morning and I was greeted by everyone I passed. We felt very safe.
