Did you know that every year, more than five hundred thousand (about 600K, actually) foreigners visit Bermuda? That’s true, and more than 50% of the visitors do that by cruise. Naturally, folks “attack” the islands when it’s warm, dry, and sunny. But Rainy Season In Bermuda is not so bad too.
Quick fact: about 85% of the visitors are from America. The rest are mainly from the neighboring Canada and the United Kingdom.
The popular season is the May-October period. And that’s when you’ll experience pretty higher rates, tons of people walking around and a lot of hassle. On the other hand, if you appreciate much lower prices and a more peaceful, serene atmosphere, the rainy season in Bermuda will be more suitable for you.
Low Temperatures, Fewer Tourists, Better Atmosphere
Now, the so-called low season kicks in November and lasts all the way up to March. Climate-wise, it’s pretty cool and fresh, which is awesome during the day. But don’t forget to grab your favorite jackets and even sweaters to wear early in the morning and late at night. It is important in case you stay up and party all night long.
The temperature usually hangs around the 60+ Fahrenheit mark. As we just mentioned, the wet season has its solid advantages. First of all, you won’t find nearly as many tourists as during the high season. And that will give you an opportunity to enjoy your stay in a lot calmer, relaxed atmosphere. The whole place will feel like it belongs to you. And you won’t be forced to walk faster, stay in lines forever and/or deal with huge crowds.
Plenty To See During The Rainy Season In Bermuda
However, there’s one big downside to the rainy season in Bermuda. That’s the fact that the majority of the tourist-favored activities/attractions (including the water activities) will be either closed or open only for an hour or two during the rainy season. So, if you can’t imagine your trip without the opportunity to try EVERYTHING the islands have to offer in terms of fun, make sure to pick a different date to travel.
Thankfully, many attractions will still be available to you, including the gorgeous National Museum, the world-famous gardens, the galleries, the caves, the aquariums, and more. Yes, there will be more than enough to see, even if you visit with your children.
True, the water temperatures during the rainy season in Bermuda won’t be comfy for a proper swim, but you can still put your favorite wetsuit on and dive. Besides, underwater visibility is actually lower during summer.
The Fans Of Low Rates Will Be Pleased
As for the prices, you’ll be surprised to learn that the tour operators and the hotels will be happy to lower the rates by as much as 50% of the peak rates. Sounds pretty awesome, doesn’t it? Furthermore, you’ll notice that the service will be a lot better than during the high season.
Shopping will also be fun, because, again, the prices will be extremely affordable, and there won’t be any annoying tourists there. So, summing up, it’s safe to say that the rainy season in Bermuda will be perfect for you if you like quiet travel. Streets and beaches will be less crowded. You will get a lot of solitude, better service, and great prices.
The wet season in Bermuda does have a lot of advantages. And some might even argue that they “beat” those of the high season. Keep in mind that during the May-August period, the humidity level will be at its peak. Autumn and winter are a bit drier usually (and so is March).
