Essence magazine features island
Essence magazine has turned its spotlight on Bermuda, courtesy of Bermudian stylist and fashion editor Shiona Turini.
The iconic magazine published a piece on an ideal 72 hours on the island over the Cup Match holiday.
Ms Turini, who wrote and provided pictures for the story, suggested a range of activities from Crown and Anchor and the Bacchanal Run, to visits to St Peter’s Church in St George and lunch at Woody’s Sports Bar in the West End.
Ms Turini wrote: “Pink sand beaches, rum swizzles, a much needed history lesson and a Gombey sighting or two are just a handful of what awaits you when you touch down in beautiful Bermuda.
“From the average tourist’s perspective, the best time to travel to Bermuda is between May and October, but, as a native, trust me when I tell you, you really don’t want to miss Cup Match weekend.
“Cup Match is the celebration of the 1834 emancipation of black slaves in Bermuda and during this weekend, Bermuda is in full party mode.”
Essence magazine, founded in 1970, is the most established magazine focused on the lives and lifestyles of black women, with a website visited by an average of 5.2 million unique visitors every month.
