The Worst Time to Experience the Island
First things first - there’s never really a ‘worst’ time to visit Bermuda.
Your island experience is personal to you and can differ wildly from somebody else. It’s not always about the sun, although there's plenty of it all year round. There are things like delicious eateries and hidden historical places of interest that can be experienced at any time of year.
During the cooler months, the weather seldom dips below 65 degrees Fahrenheit, which guarantees a pleasant getaway. In fact, the hotels in Bermuda used to refund your money if the temperature was cooler than that!
Hurricanes are more likely during September and October. Still, hurricanes and tropical storms are rare and typically avoid the island altogether, which is located well to the north of the main hurricane belt.
Stronger winds and waves can be expected from time to time at this time of year, which makes it ideal for kitesurfing.
Water clarity is better during winter, with underwater visibility at 175 ft from December through April compared with August — the worst month — at 75 ft. Scuba divers prefer to come outside of the main season to dive with sea turtles and spotted eagle rays. If you're planning to take a dip, a wet suit is recommended.
Even if it rains, there’s plenty to do from visiting Bermuda’s Art Galleries and museums to discovering the island’s rich and fascinating history. You might prefer to enjoy the many unique and stylistic stores or go dining at your favorite restaurant. Bermuda isn’t just about its iconic beaches. Although they are spectacular with stunning views, there’s much more to experience.
Some other experiences that are on offer throughout the cooler months include:
- Explore the Royal Naval Dockyard.
- Enjoy a game of mini golf by the ocean seafront.
- Admire the historic stone buildings in St George's.
- Check out the breathtaking views at Horseshoe Bay.
