Have a Pink Christmas in Breathtaking Bermuda

Exempt from winter’s chill (highs tend to stay in the 70s, and the temperature almost never dips under 60), Bermuda is the perfect place to celebrate the holidays. Here are a few of the most beloved holiday traditions of our island paradise:

Elbow Beach. On December 25, it’s a pink (sand) Christmas at Elbow Beach, where ex-pats and tourists come together on Christmas morning to socialize, swim, eat, drink, and make merry.

Boxing Day. On December 26, most shops are closed, but that doesn’t mean you should stay indoors. Saunter along the main streets of the island to catch a glimpse of the many whimsical costumed Gombeys as they drum and dance in a performance that testifies to the Caribbean, African, and British mix that makes up Bermudan culture.

Kings Square. For Bermudans, Kings Square, located in the town of St. George’s, is the place to be on New Year’s Eve. You’ll indulge in delicious food and drink while being entertained by fireworks and live musical performances and, at the end of the night, the highly-anticipated “onion drop” to officially ring in the New Year.
