Bermuda is a prosperous island characterized by neat, trim houses that are a source of great pride to their owners. There won't be a casino at your megaresort -- Bermuda has no casinos -- and you'd better have your fill of Big Macs before you leave home. There are some fast-food joints, but nothing like those on the U.S. mainland, or even in the Bahamas. There's a sense of order in Bermuda, and everything seems to work efficiently, even when the weather's hot during bermuda weekend.
Even though a large number of people live on this small island, you should never feel crowded during bermuda weekend. There are no billboards or neon signs, and relatively few cars to spoil the rolling countryside. Most houses seem to fit quite naturally into the landscape.
If you're visiting for the first time, you may want to follow the traditional tourist route, basically the equivalent of visiting New York and seeing the Statue of Liberty and the Empire State Building. The Aquarium, Devil's Hole, and cruise-boat outings are all popular for first-time visitors. For travelers on a second, third, or fourth visit to Bermuda for bermuda weekend, a different experience unfolds. Once you've done all the "must-sees," you'll want to walk around and make discoveries on your own. The best parishes for walking are Somerset, St. George, and the City of Hamilton.
But don't fill your days of bermuda weekend with too much structured sightseeing. Bermuda's beaches are soft sand tinted pink by particles of shell. You'll also want time to lounge on the beach, play in the water or hit the links, and to enjoy moments like sitting by the harbor in the late afternoon, enjoying the views as the yachts glide by. Absorbing Bermuda's beauty at your own pace and stopping to chat with the occasional islander will give you a real taste of Bermuda.
Many of Bermuda resorts have a special all-inclusive program for bermuda weekend vacations. The Pompano Beach is dramatically situated overlooking Bermuda's southwest coast, adjacent to the Robert Trent Jones designed Port Royal Golf Course, in Southampton parish. The resort's location is considered one of the best beachfront settings on the island, offering breathtaking ocean views from every part of the property. Since the resort is tucked away from the island's main road, guests feel as though they've escaped to a private, secluded hideaway - yet, they are only minutes away from the best that Bermuda has to offer. The Pompano Beach Club has the perfect location to allow you to easily experience what Bermuda is all about.
The resort has its own private beach, with plenty of chaise lounges, sand chairs and beach umbrellas for you to enjoy the warm Bermuda sunshine. At low tide, you can wade out over 400 yards in knee to chest deep water, along the resort's spectacular sandbar. Watersports enthusiasts and people of all ages and swimming abilities are attracted to the waterfront because of how shallow it is. The shallowness of the water combined with silky smooth white sand enables you to see fish swimming along the sandbar. It's always comforting when you can see what's in the water around you and when you can touch the sand below you. Put on your mask, fins and snorkel and explore the brilliant coral reefs which line the edge of the shallow sandbar. Or grab a "noodle" and float effortlessly in the crystal clear ocean. Meander along the shallow coastline, in knee deep water, and find a secluded cove along the shoreline to relax in. The choice is yours. One thing's for sure - you simply won't find a more picturesque waterfront in Bermuda to explore!
