Choose the Picture-Perfect Location to Pop the Question
From popular locations to secluded spots, there are a myriad of dream settings to ask the big question. Here are some of the best places in Bermuda to get engaged.
On the Water
Sail along Bermuda’s azure waters and colourful reefs as the sun goes down and pop the question on a private sunset cruise. Book a private sunset cruise with Mona Lisa Cruises or elevate your engagement experience with True Bermuda Charters catamaran sailboat and enjoy a private chef experience that is specially curated to your taste.
Find a Secluded Beach
While the famous Horseshoe Bay Beach and the popular Jobson’s Cove along the South Shore are popular beaches to pop the question in Bermuda, you might want to ask your partner to spend forever with you at some of the island’s hidden gems like Southlands National Park, West Whale Bay, or Astwood Cove.
Gibbs Hill Lighthouse
Climb the 185-step spiral staircase and enjoy some of the best views of the island from Gibbs Hill Lighthouse. As you take in the vistas of the South Shore, Little Sound, the City of Hamilton, and the Royal Naval Dockyard, the scenic sights will make you fall in love all over again.
Fort St. Catherine
Explore Fort St. Catherine in St. George’s with your beloved. Like this historic 400-year-old fort, your relationship was made to last and is a stunning setting for your special moment. Where the fort meets Bermuda’s lush sand and vibrant waters, pop the question as you take in the views of St. Catherine’s Beach and Achilles Bay.
Go on a scenic stroll down Lover’s Lane in Paget Parish, the name itself is symbolic, but when you arrive at the freshwater marsh you will find a 400ft secluded boardwalk that showcases the mangroves that are extremely important to the birds, fish and plants that live here. Along the path, you’ll find lush cedar trees (and maybe even a Bermuda Buckeye Butterfly) that will set the stage for your engagement.
Most hotels and accommodations will pull out the stops to make a perfect proposal on their property. Ask them for options to set up a private dinner on the beach, by the pool or on your balcony to set the scene for a Bermudaful proposal.
Hire a Photographer
Remember the once-in-a-lifetime moment and hire a local Bermuda wedding photographer to capture the moment you agreed to spend forever together. The island is home to many talented photographers — like Meredith Andrews, Ernest McCreight, or Amanda Temple — who can capture your proposal against a gorgeous backdrop.
Cheers to Forever
After your fairy-tale proposal, raise a glass to one of the most special days of your life with your partner. If you’re looking for an elevated experience, have Eettafel Bermuda design a luxury beachside picnic set up, or indulge in an unforgettable dining experience at one of Bermuda’s best local restaurants like Huckleberry Restaurant at the Rosedon Hotel, Intrepid at the Hamilton Princess & Beach Club, or Sul Verde at Rosewood Bermuda.
