Bermuda fifth-best island — Condé Nast

Bermuda has again been highlighted as one of the world's top Island destinations by Condé Nast Traveller's annual Readers Choice Awards.

The publication ranked Bermuda fifth-best island in a recent list, based on reader reviews. Overall, the Island received a rating of 84.2 per cent, beating out islands including Bali, Santorini, the British Virgin Islands and many others.

The article states: “Though this small island sits in the North Atlantic, its climate is decidedly subtropical. A British Overseas Territory, Bermuda is a melting pot of British, American, and Caribbean cultures, and offers tons of things to do: snorkelling near pink-sand beaches, golfing, shopping, museum hopping, and more.”

The article also notes the Island's caves as an attraction, highlighting Crystal and Fantasy cave tours in Hamilton Parish, and states that there are direct flights to Bermuda from eight East Coast cities including New York, Atlanta and Miami.

While Bermuda was the top Atlantic destination on the list, four Pacific Islands received higher scores, including Waiheke Island in New Zealand (84.4 per cent) and the French Polynesian Islands of Moorea and Bora Bora (84.5 per cent and 84.8 per cent).

The island of Palawan in the Philippines won the prize for the top island destination for the second year in a row, scoring 85.9 per cent approval.

Bermuda is no stranger to the annual awards, having won the competition 11 times, most recently in 2013. The magazine has also highlighted the Island through several articles this year, including a story focused on Bermuda's art scene and a cover story in the February “Romance” issue.

The Island was also highlighted recently when the Royal Palms Hotel in Pembroke was named in Expedia's top-ten hotels on it's Insider Selects list.
