While we found it challenging to leave the pool at Elbow Beach, Bermuda, a Kiwi Collection recommended hotel, we found it even more challenging to not spend the remaining hours of light by its intoxicatingly beautiful beach and thus we headed back there. Plus, all of the fun we had been having in the sun left us famished and parched and the hotel has a beachside restaurant.
When in Bermuda, it is absolutely necessary to sample the legendary national drink: the Rum Swizzle. This delicious mix of rums paired with fruit juices and sweeteners is the perfect libation for sharing and irresistible to locals and tourists alike. We found that it went down too smoothly and that it is quite potent, so we decided to soak up some of the alcohol with what else other than delicious fried food. Bermudians say, “You swizzle in and you swagger out.” We can definitely attest to that after consuming two pitchers!
Then we went for another leisurely stroll by the ocean. Along the way we kept exclaiming to each other how we both thought that Bermuda was one of the best kept travel secrets.
