Located less than two hours from New York and Washington, DC, Bermuda is the perfect long-weekend destination in large part due to its famous pink beaches. The unique pinkish hue actually comes from miniscule creations that call the island’s massive coral reef system home. That doesn’t take away from the beauty of these unique beaches though, my favorite of which is located alongside the Fairmont Southampton resort.
This massive hotel enjoys a prime position along the Atlantic Ocean, guaranteeing guests prime access to the pink sand beaches and warm waters for which the island is famous. One of my favorite things to do there though is to wander down the shore and discover quiet coves and hidden beaches I can call my own; at least for the day.
