Guide book captures the imagination

Bermuda’s entrepreneurial energy and outdoor appeal has been highlighted in the fifth edition of guide book Moon Bermuda.

Author Rosemary Jones, a Bermudian journalist, said: “There’s a fresh vitality borne out by a slew of debut activities and attractions — from adrenalin-spiking watersports and haunted-history tours to food, fashion and full-on carnival festivals.

“Bermuda is courting fintech, virtual currencies and digital start-ups, and apps now offer Uber-style taxis and ‘insider’ curated experiences for visitors.”

She added: “We’ve got celebrity mega-chefs and a speakeasy serving up craft cocktails down Chancery Lane. Electric vehicles, Cessna tours, the prospect of casinos — this is not your parents’ Bermuda.

“But it’s genuine ‘Bermy’. And it’s capturing the imagination of brand new millennial audiences.”

The latest 336-page edition of the book, published by Avalon Travel, includes experiential attractions and promotions to appeal to younger visitors.

The guide book, which has sold close to 25,000 copies, has been updated with new photos and text every three years since Ms Jones published the first edition in 2006.

The latest edition’s cover photograph was shot by Bermudian photojournalist John Manderson, of Luminous Imaging.

Moon Bermuda is for sale online and at bookstores throughout North America and is currently available at The Bookmart in Hamilton for $25.75.
