    I’ve been to both Bermuda and Bahamas and my vote goes to Bermuda.  It’s gorgeous, people are super friendly and it’s not as contrived as Bahamas.  I mean don’t get me wrong, Bahamas are amazing as well but the feeling in Bermuda is just more…..organic/real.  Plus they have amazing scuba/snorkling at all those sunken ship sights.  I went there in August and the weather was perfect.  Not sure what the weather in Bahamas is like that time of year as I have only been in late spring/early summer.  

    I’m sure you’ll have a great time no matter where you go.

    I know you posted this a week ago, and I’m not sure if you’ve decided, but my vote is for Bermuda – depending on the island in the Bahamas you go to. If you’re going to one of the out-islands, then it’s a toss up. Bermuda is LOVELY. Like Meowkers said, it’s not contrived or touristy like the main Bahama islands. There’s so much culture and history, with beautiful water for boating, snorkeling and diving. As a Canadian, the trip will be much shorter for you to Bermuda. If you’re thinking of exploring one of the Bahamian out-islands, not Great Bahama or Nassau, I’d say that’s a great option as well!

    I vote Europe. I feel like all tropical destinations are basically the same.

    Omg, I feel the need to comment on this if you have not yet decided. I went to Bermuda a few years ago and left the island totally blown away. It is the most romantic and initmate islad you can go to. It is small and historical and private, while the people are so incredibly friendly and hospitible. Horseshoe Bay, the historical forts and the main City of Hamilton (i think) are all so different and authentic to what a Honeymoon should be. You get the best of both– beautiful beaches, snorkeling, relaxation, mixed with all the cool oppertunities to explore and venture out without fear of crime or poverty. It is AMAZING. And if you are looking for one of the most incredible and afforable places to stay I highly recommend Pompano Beach Club, it is situated on a sandbar so you can walk or snorkel out like 3 football field legnths and still stand! The water is calm and crystal blue there as well. and dont even get me started on the gourmet food. Totally blows the “high” end places like Elbow beach club out of the water. Its quiet and romantic without feeling like you are at a resort.

     

    haha I think i now want to change my plans to go back to bermuda!
