Once upon a time the stunning archipelago of Bermuda, in the Atlantic Ocean, was called the Isle of the Devils, as rough seas, treacherous reef and heavy and hidden calls of foreign birds and wild boars led to legends of evil spirits, and therefore did not attempt to establish any sort of permanent settlement.
Nowadays the pink sand beaches and pristine coral reef of The Bermudas (181 islands), a British Overseas Territory, are a favorite destinations for beach weddings, and Jobson’s Cove with its picture-perfect beach, gentle waves and rock formations is right at the top of every bride-to-be wishlist.
Situated in Warwick Parish, Jobson’s Cove is on the South West edge of Bermuda, 5 km (3 miles) from the capital, Hamilton. The cove is perfect for families, as the shallow waters allow everyone to spot colorful fish, even without a snorkel.
WHERE TO STAY: in Hamilton there are plenty of hotels and guesthouses. Surrounded by an army of lush trees and bougainvillea, and flanked by white sands and azure seas, The Fairmont Southampton envelops its visitors in a paradisiacal environment that many find almost impossible to escape from. With ten bars an restaurants, lovely pools, a top-notch Spa and an 18-hole golf course, it is really impossible to get bored here!
HOW TO GET THERE: the beach is accessible by foot, car, and bike, with a small road that winds down from the busier South Road.
