Bermuda: Voted the best place to escape onset of autumn

Bermuda has been voted best destination in the Caribbean and Atlantic to escape the onset of autumn by the readers of a top publication.

The Island received a Conde Nast Traveler readers' choice rating of 87.2, putting it ahead of rival resorts including Nevis, Turks and Caicos, St Barts and Anguilla.

“Not ready for the fall weather? Head to one of the top Caribbean islands,” an article on the MSN living website, said, below a picture of a sun-drenched South Shore beach.

“For a ‘fun blend of British, American, and Caribbean culture', Bermuda is the place to be. Don't be fooled by the island's slight dimensions, as one reader points to its ‘endless activities: historical sites, golf, scooters, superb shopping and dining, museums, gardens, perfumeries and aquariums, too!'

“Go for a snorkel or explore the many private coves to truly experience the island's ‘lovely scenery', which is highlighted by the ‘pink sand beaches and aqua blue waters'.”

Readers gave the Island an overall score of 87.2, two points more than second-placed Nevis.

Residents received top marks for friendliness with a score of 91.2 — far higher than any other resort.

Other scores included 92.5 for ambience, 89.5 for beaches, 84 for activities, 88.3 for lodging, 80.5 for restaurants, and 93.9 for scenery.
