Bermuda is a great place to visit. Due to its British influence, Bermuda is slightly dressier than other islands. Think: smart-casual.
Obviously, in the summer it’s going to be hot. The hottest months being from May-November. The winter months will be still be warm, but will average around 60 degrees. Therefore, when it comes to packing, make sure you pack what you feel comfortable in warm to hot weather.
Unlike in America, you can’t wear skimpy shorts and just a bikini top or just board shorts when you aren’t on the beach. While you are at the beach that is totally okay, but when going somewhere before or after like a restaurant, make sure you have a cover up, dress, or shorts and shirt to go over your bathing suit.
Casual clothes can be worn at lunch in most restaurants, but some restaurants (especially in Hamilton) and nightclubs ask men to wear button-up shirts or sport jackets at night. If you are not sure, call ahead and ask.
Men who live there tend to wear Bermuda shorts or khaki shorts, loafers, and a nice polo so when visiting, pack khaki shorts, button ups or collared shirts, and nice shoes for going out to dinner. Women tend to wear nice dresses to dinner.
Since you will be using a moped to get around the island, pack a jacket, sweater, windbreaker, or raincoat. We got caught up in a huge rainstorm completely unprepared and we walked around in wet dresses for a few hour.
In the winter, pack a light fleece or heavier sweater because it can get cold out at night.
