The island is surrounded by a fantastic coral reef that harbors colorful fish and has ensnared scores of shipwrecks, making for memorable diving and snorkeling at spots like Elbow Beach in Paget Parish. Elsewhere, the crystal-clear waters of Southampton Parish provide perfect conditions for kayaking and yachting. The offerings on land are splendid as well. You can play a round at a world-class golf course, hike peaceful trails and sunbathe on glorious pink-sand beaches. Or stroll the crooked streets of the colonial settlement of the Town of St George, Britain’s oldest surviving town in the New World, which is so well preserved it’s been made a World Heritage site.
Bermuda’s impeccable location in the Atlantic—not the Caribbean—keeps the island warmed by the Gulf Stream and the sun’s rays, but free of the tropics’ relentless heat. The extraordinarily pleasant climate rarely sees extremes of either hot or cold.
The hottest part of the year: May through mid-October, when temperatures hover between 75°F and 85°F (23°C and 29°C). During the winter months, temperatures average a balmy 70°F (21°C).

- About 2-3 months before your wedding date you’ll want to file a “Notice of Intended Marriage” form with the Bermuda Registrar General and send in the necessary fee with it.
- If you or your fiance is divorced or widowed, you’ll have to show the divorce decree or the death certificate. No blood tests or residency is required.
- The “Notice of Intended Marriage” is then published in two Bermuda newspapers. If nobody objects to the marriage, the Registrar General will issue you your marriage license 15 days later. This license will be valid for 3 months.
- Once you have your marriage license you can get married wherever you want to in Bermuda! You can have a romantic ceremony on the beach or tie the knot on a yacht. Your marriage on the island will definitely be a memorable one!
