Bermuda is an idyllic island with many places it is easy to fall in love with. The ever-growing number of weddings and honeymoons organised here seems to strongly suggest that the island is also an ideal place to celebrate love. If you are not in Bermuda as part of a couple, you don’t have to feel let down because the island is a perfect place to found love. If you are a couple not married yet, then Bermuda is the perfect place to make this love official.
Of course, there are many places where to declare your love on the island, whether it is new or a few years old. If you haven’t plan anything yet, you will have an amazing choice of venues and natural settings. From the classic beach of pink sand or a luxurious restaurant to the top of the Gibbs Lighthouse, the highest point on the island, or even an underwater proposal if you are both fans of scuba-diving, you are guaranteed to find the best place to make your feelings official.
There is however somewhere that was voted the best place for falling in love in Bermuda in the Best of Bermuda Awards of The Bermudian. A sunset cruise on the Great Sound is without doubt one of the most romantic things you will ever have the chance to do. The Great Sound is definitely one of the best places to sail in Bermuda. Shaped naturally by the island, it is a kind of huge square of water bordered by the island on three sides and open to the Atlantic Ocean in its North side.
The Great Sound is that body of water surrounded by the southwest of the island, forming Hamilton Harbour in the east. When you arrive in Bermuda on a cruise and stop at the Royal Naval Dockyard, you are just at the entry of the Great Sound. The coral reef that goes from the Dockyard to the Stovell Bay right across forms a kind of barrier that stop the waves and current from the Atlantic Ocean. That is why the waters of the Great Sound give this impression of calm compared to the more agitated outer shores.
A sunset cruise on the Great Sound is a fantastic experience because you have the opportunity to see the sunset on the Atlantic Ocean. The islands that form the part of Bermuda between the Dockyard and the Somerset Island are not big enough to spoil the amazing view that it is. At sunset, the whole of the Great Sound is coloured and the atmosphere is fairy-tale like. There are also a dozen a very small islands in the western part of the Great Sound that look amazing with the sunset behind them. Clearly it is the ideal setting to fall in love.
There are many ways to go onto a sunset cruise in the Great Sound. Depending on your budget, you can either go onto a charter boat or a catamaran, or even borrow a friend’s boat! You will also be able to choose between cruises on glass-bottom boats to see how the marine undergrounds look at sunset or cocktail cruises to sip a sexy drink while admiring the sun drowning in the ocean.
So if you are looking for somewhere to fall in love, propose or declare your undying love, make your way to Bermuda and get on a sunset cruise on the Great Sound.
