Luxury And The Bermuda Triangle

In Bermuda, houses are painted sherbert yellow, green and blue and the pinkish sand on every beach is as soft as flour. If you're planning a winter getaway, consider Bermuda, where the sweet floral scents and sounds of the sea will whisk you a million miles away.

Stay

With three restaurants, pools, tennis courts and spacious rooms all steps away from one of the island's best beaches, Elbow Beach is the place to stay. Order a Dark and Stormy and bask on the beach to a soundtrack of crashing waves. Sushi fans will love the fresh-from-the-ocean wahoo rolls at Seabreez. www.mandarinoriental.com/bermuda
Do

Rent a moped and cruise the island at 25 miles-per-hour. Visit the flamingos at the local aquarium, stop and smell the hibiscus at the Botanical Gardens and leap off the cliffs into crystal waters at Horseshoe Bay. If you're as nosy as we are, you'll want to ride over to Tucker's Town where Ross Perot, Michael Bloomberg and Silvio Berlusconi have holiday homes.

Eat

The Lobster Pot in town is a Bermudian institution where bibs are a must. Don't miss out on the Guinea Chicks (Sept-March) and if you've never tried Wahoo, this is the place to do it. www.lobsterpot.bm

Drink

Chat up some locals (Bermudians are famously friendly) over a few Rum Swizzles (made with Bermuda rum) at the local mainstay Rum Swizzle Inn. www.swizzleinn.com
