When is best to visit Bermuda for a Golf Break?
Bermuda is a semitropical island shaped like a fish hook, enjoying a moderate climate; the word “High Bermuda” has come to mean warm days and blue skies. The Gulf Stream which flows between North America and the island keeps the temperature temperate. There’s no real rainy season and no usual rainy month. Showers may often be hard and very wet, but the skies soon clear.

In the summer months, the temperature rises closer to 85°F (29°C).
