Last October we went to Bermuda for the weekend to revisit the beautiful corner of the earth I was fortunate enough to grow up in. I love climbing the stairs of the Gibbs Hill Lighthouse and walking along Horshoe beach on the pretty pink sand, reminiscing about childhood memories. It's only a 2 hour flight from the east coast of the states, so it's definitely worth the easy trip.

Here are some amazing beaches and restaurant recomondations, and golf courses not to miss:

The beaches are pink and the sea is turquoise, protected by a coral reef that keeps the big breakers off.
Beaches: Horseshoe Bay, Long Bay, Elbow Beach (where I grew up nearby ). Look out for the Longtail birds!
Restaurants:
Try Markus with striking views of the harbor.
We liked the new Bar 1609 at the Hamilton Princess Hotel, walk through the pool area and sit above the yachts, open May until November.
Highly recommended restaurant Harry`s at the waterfront.
Great sushi at Harbourfront, tell Angelo we sent you, the food is amazing - Angelo takes stunning photos of sunsets, #cloudporn! Best to have drinks before dinner and watch him take them from the terrace.

The golf courses are stunning! Like Tuckers Point Club, Mid Ocean Club.
A must see is the Royal Naval Dockyard, where you can swim with the dolphins, at the one end closer to the US.
St. Georges is on the other end of Bermuda and absolutely lovely, historicly the home of the first settlers.
Shopping is very limited but in town you can find nice souvenirs. Don't forget to try a Rum Swizzle!
