Bermuda included in magazine’s top 20

The editors, writers and explorers of National Geographic Traveler have named Bermuda one of the 20 best destinations in the world for 2016.

The magazine has the largest audience of any travel magazine with more than 8.5 million readers, according to a press release from Bermuda Tourism Authority.

CEO Bill Hanbury stated: “This year the world’s travel media have fallen head over heels in love with Bermuda.

“Outside Magazine named Bermuda Best Island, Conde Nast Traveler put us on its top five islands list and now we’re in National Geographic Traveler’s top 20 destinations worldwide.

“Our marketing team is telling authentic stories about Bermuda that are resonating with travellers, while, at the same time, our partners across the tourism economy are delivering memorable experiences.

“The accolades we’ve earned in 2015 are highly valuable for growing the tourism industry going forward and everyone in Bermuda should feel proud of these endorsements.”

In a congratulations letter to the BTA, the editors of the magazine said winning placement on the list was a competitive process.

Features editor Amy Alipio stated: “The ‘Best of the World’ list reflects the travel expertise and global knowledge of National Geographic. The destinations represent what’s superlative, timely and richly authentic in the world of travel today.”
