Bermuda is a self-governing overseas territory of the United Kingdom located in the North Atlantic Ocean east of Cape Hatteras, which is composed of 7 main islands and many more rocks and islets.

More than half of the population is of African provenance, while the other one is constituted of British, American, and Portuguese people and this explains why the official language is English while they also speak some Portuguese.

The main economic growth factor that makes the island move only up can be considered the financial sector and tourism due to its famous pink sand beaches and fabulous shores.

Warnings & Dangers in Bermuda

Overall Risk


Almost all the risks that can somehow affect you are related to the beach and mainly the so-called Portuguese Man of War that looks like a jellyfish but its bite is not fatal and rip currents.

Transport & Taxis Risk


You should be very attentive as all the taxi drivers of Bermuda are self-employed, meaning that they are not regulated by a company and as a result not very safe, but it is also advisable to take a taxi for night walks from airports as other means of transportation can not be found at that time.

Pickpockets Risk


Pickpockets are often met here as it is a touristic destination and as a result, there are some registered cases by the public authorities, which should make you more attentive and have a closer look at your belongings.

Natural Disasters Risk


The hurricane season in Bermuda is considered to be from June until November when it is also advisable to follow all the indications of the public authorities as well as the National Hurricane Center's advice.

Mugging Risk


There are few cases of mugging that are registered on the island that have somehow affected tourists, but still, this does not mean that you should be fearless. A good piece of advice would be to not walk alone and be very attentive in order to avoid any unpleasant situation that can occur.

Terrorism Risk


Even though there are no historical data related to the recent terrorist attacks, there is always a chance of that happening due to some conflicts of interest with other countries. This is why it is advisable to look at your surroundings and staying safe.

Scams Risk


As everywhere in the world there are scammers on the islands but these could be easily avoided through using your common sense and trying not to be easily influenced.

Women Travelers Risk


Overall it is considered to be a safe place for all travelers but it is still advisable for females as it is everywhere in the world not to travel alone. If this is happening then choose wisely your accommodation, do not try to look very expensive and always tell someone where are you going.

So... How Safe Is Bermuda Really?

Even if Bermuda is not one of the most famous and visited places in the world, it has its special beauty as well as factors that should be taken into account while traveling in order to enjoy your holiday.

Even though there are some registered criminal cases it is well-known that very rarely this implies tourists, but this does not mean that you should be fearless.

Keep in mind all pieces of advice and you will be more than safe in Bermuda.

  1. LOVED it!

    My husband and I went to Bermuda in 2018 and LOVED it! We planned on going back in 2020 but then the pandemic happened. We wanted to go this year, but again the pandemic stopped us. We are hoping to go back in the spring of 2022. I felt it was the safest place I had traveled to overall and highly recommend anyone thinking of going to just go! You will love it!

  2. As safe as can be

    I love coming here and going to the beach, it can get a bit pricey with the flights there but it’s definitely worth it. awesome place for a relaxing vacation.

    As for safety, I was just wondering what this website might say but seriously, this is HEAVEN, I feel safer here than anywhere else.

    Spectacular beaches

    I enjoyed our quick holiday in Bermuda! We had friends who were getting married there and we were there to witness the ceremony. It is quite expensive though, which makes sense I guess since a lot of things they have to import to the island. The beaches are spectacular and I guess that would be the main highlight of your visit. Its a quick flight from New York, so if you need a quick breather you might as well check Bermuda out.

  4. One of the safest, most beautiful places on the globe!

    Is Bermuda the idyllic place to visit or even get married in? That was just one of the questions I was asking myself before going there. The main downside of Bermuda is the prices which can be pretty high. Other than this, there’s not much I can say that would be on the negative side. I wouldn’t shop here because it’s just not worth paying extra dollars just to get the same things you can get at home. If you can get a good package that is within your budget then you should think about it. Bermuda, in my humble opinion, is well worth the trip and costs.

    Bermuda is quite close to a lot of Northeastern cities from the US which makes it an even better choice for people living in these cities.

    Safety wise, it’s super safe. I felt very safe here and didn’t hear anyone say they were mugged or pickpocketed or things of the sort. Taxis will cost more than you expect and its best to just ask how much it will cost before you go on the ride. It’s always better to take a taxi if you want to go out at night as there aren’t any other means of transportation.

    As soon as you get off the plane and “enter” Bermuda you will smile when seeing those magnificent, calm waters, the hospitable and friendly people, feel the breeze on your cheeks and look at the nice colored houses with white roofs. It’s a moment that will stick with you the first time you experience it. It has stuck with me.

    I highly recommend you go to Bermuda’s Southampton Parish which is considered one of the very best beaches in the entire world. Once you get there you’ll know why. I can’t explain it in words, you have to be there. Also, make sure to visit the Crystal and Fantasy Caves which are stunning, there’s no other word to describe them properly. This place is a perfect one for a spectacular wedding.

  5. I am planning to travel to Bermuda with my parents and children in July 2022. Is it safe to visit with the current circumstances?
