10 Reasons to Spend Your Summer Fridays in Bermuda

Dreamy beaches, ocean sunsets and sublime cocktail cruises are among the motivations to head to Bermuda for a long weekend.

1 Those Beaches

Turquoise water and pink sand at Horseshoe Bay

Miles of coastline, pink sands and crystal-blue waters – Bermuda's beaches are the stuff of legend. Head to secluded ones like Jobson's Cove, with its dramatic cliffs and swimming hole, or popular, busy stretches such as the famous, photogenic Horseshoe Bay.

2 Serious Instagram Envy

Pretty much anywhere you point your camera or smartphone will have co-workers crying in their cubes. See where to get some of the most breathtaking views.

3 It's Just Two Hours Away

You read it right – paradise is about a two-hour flight from most major U.S. East Coast airports.

4 No Traffic Jams

Set sail on Bermuda's waterways

While everyone else is breathing exhaust fumes on the turnpike, you’ll be here.

5 Bonfires On The Beach
