Bermuda is obviously not technically in the Caribbean, but it’s a popular island with a very nice climate that is usually lumped into the Caribbean group. It’s well north of the tropics so the winters are actually quite cool and the best times to visit tend to be spring and fall, though summer is popular as well.
As a part of the United Kingdom this is far more traditionally British than any of the actual Caribbean islands. It certainly has an exotic feel, especially with its trademark pink-sand beaches near abundant golf courses, but the English language dominates all aspects so it might not feel too far from home in that respect.
Bermuda is generally quite expensive for everything from food to souvenirs to golf to hotel prices so it’s not an ideal stop for a low-budget traveler even if cheap airfare is available.

Found next to North and South Carolina, Bermuda is found to have a subtropical climate. This means that from spring to fall, visitors will find themselves submersed in hot and humid weather.
Winter is a different story with temps in the 60s and lower humidity. Winter also has lovely sea breezes nearly everyday.
There are only a few dozen hotels and resorts in all of Bermuda, spread quite evenly over the island, so each is also a bit secluded. There are no cheap hotels in Bermuda at all, except for perhaps some homestays that aren’t arranged easily online.
The quality is quite high over the island and there are no resorts below even 3 stars, so at least you can expect quite a lot for your money.

As the weather changes a little throughout the year, so do the prices. During the low season, the summer and fall months, prices drop in comparison to the rest of the year. In fact, some hotel prices will drop as much as 25 percent.
The peak season, otherwise known as the high season, covers the winter months and early spring. During this time of year, the island faces a large population increase as snow birds leave the north in search of a warmer winter. If traveling during this time, be prepared for an increase in not just hotel prices, but flight rates as well.
