We are a couple in our 50s and are planning our 1st trip to bermuda in August this year. I have done quite a bit of research on this website but still can't decide. We intend to do some exploring - hamilton, dockyards and st george but we would also like to relax. I like the beach, lovely views etc but my husband would really prefer relaxing at a table in the shade. We both like good restaurants.
Would it be a good idea to spend a few days in hamilton at the start of the holiday to do the sight seeing bit then move to a beach hotel to relax?
I have looked at the reviews for lots of the beach hotels. Cambridge beaches as like adults only but wonder if this is too far out and secluded? - also some reviews are quite negative.
Also the reefs as beach looks lovely - i like the surf - and it seems rooms recently revamped but would it be noisy and full of children in August?
My last 'random' idea is a well reviewed and very smart looking apartment on the sound near Evans bay and a scooter hire to take us to the south shore beaches. It looks very nice and has its own pool but I don't know anything about the area and wonder about the scooter as we are not motorbike riders.
Reading this through, I can see the answer is really - it's up to you! But I would still appreciate any views or comments.
