The Reefs Resort, Bermuda

This island is wonderful around the holidays, when the pink beaches are deserted and the temperature hovers around 70 degrees (light sweater weather).

What to do: There are no car rentals on Bermuda, so rent a moped and explore Hamilton, the island’s capital, and picturesque St. George’s, its oldest town, for historic buildings that house museums, restaurants, pubs, and shops.

Where to stay: Many resorts close in the winter, but the exquisite Reefs Resort is open. The Reefs is a complex of pink buildings that cascade down the hillside to a private beach. At the top, 19 new, pastel-washed club suites are ideal for larger families, with two or three bedrooms, a spacious living room, kitchen, dining room, and private balcony with hot tub. The bedrooms have floor-to-ceiling sliding doors that open to long balconies overlooking coral grottoes, surf-lapped beach, and the ocean. Bounteous breakfasts and dinners are served in Ocean Echo, a semicircular glass-fronted restaurant with sweeping views; 800/742-2008 or thereefs.com.
