Summer time is mostly about escaping the oozing heat of the sun. Maybe go to some place really cold where you can ski and snowboard for life. In some cases, it's enjoying it in a quiet little paradise and savouring every moment of it away from the daily hassles of work. Hawaii for some reason has been the summer hangout of the world. Why not do it at some place that's not totally typical. Like maybe instead of the Pacific, let's go for the Atlantic and I have just the perfect place for you.
Bermuda is a group of coral islands in the Atlantic Ocean and is actually a dependency of the United Kingdom. It is usually a popular resort centre not only among the Europeans but also among everyone else. They lie midway between Nova Scotia, Canada and the West Indies about 1,000 kilometers away from New York City. It's a total haven to all the vacation seekers out there. But first off, let me give you a head start to five of the must see places in the Bermuda Islands.
The Devil's Hole Aquarium is the first and oldest tourist attraction in Bermuda. Although it has been developed into a well-designed centre, many of its unique and foremost features have been retained. The Devil's Hole is a natural fish pond where about 300 species of fish can be found. A gift shop and a ship are allotted to give you a personalized sense of enjoyment.
If you're in search of holy ground, check out the St. Peter's Church which dates way back to 1619. It has a unique Bermudian woodwork architecture that's been kept for the past 500 years. The St. Peter's Church was brought by the first settlers and is a part of the World Heritage Site. Craving for history and new facts? The African Diaspora Trail brings you the meeting place of the African, Caribbean, Native America, and British heritage. It highlights the most of the many interesting points about the islands.
Go beyond your imagination and check out the Crystal and Fantasea Caves of Bermuda Islands. Discovered in 1884, it's been hailed as a silent world of delicate splendour. Crystal stalactites and stalagmites posing as Mother Nature's offspring for over 30 million years now, the cave is definitely a must-see attraction.
For the travel junkie on the lookout for action, you might want to go to the Snorkel Park. The hospitality of the locals caters to all the amenities and services of the beach-goers. The water sports are just so cool, it's just so impossible to stop. The Bar and Grill of the resort offers the tropical favourites and the local foods. This is one place you definitely do not want to miss.
Basically, those are just a few of the many attractions in The Bermuda Islands. The pink sands and the cerulean blue sea make the island more appealing in its own natural way. Setting aside the beach, the treasured heritage of the British dependency should be another magnetic pull for the travel aficionado. Bermuda is a summer haven and there should be no mistaken it.
