Top Most Romantic things to do on your Bermuda Vacations
The reefs that encircle this romantic island some 600 miles off the coast of North Carolina have trashed hundred of vessels . Today that translates to the most spectacular and accessible wreck diving in the world. Most of the boats, or what is left of them, are resting no more than 50 feet deep on the vibrant coral beds.
Scuba divers can explore numerous wrecks and coral reefs in relatively shallow water (typically 30–40 ft/9–12 m in depth) with virtually unlimited visibility. Many nearby reefs are readily accessible from shore by snorkellers, especially at Church Bay.
Book a dive/stay package on your Bermuda vacations at the shell-pink 74-room Pompano Beach Club on the Southwest coast or, at the more casual 9 Beaches. The latter is a collection of canvas-sided cabanas, the best of which are directly over the water and glass floors (Plexiglas panels in the floor).

The best time to visit Bermuda is from Spring through to Autumn. Bermuda has a sub-tropical climate, pink beaches, and cerulean blue oceans. The climate is humid and, as a result, the summertime heat index can be high. Winters are mild, although the occasional Atlantic winter storms can produce powerful winds and heavy rain. The Bermudas are not actually in the Caribbean Sea and has a different climate. It is much farther north, but the warm waters of the Gulf Stream help give it a quasi-tropical atmosphere.
