Because the island is tucked near the Gulf Stream, it's temperate year-round, so expect weather that's never too hot nor too cold. That said, beachgoers will find winter temperatures too chilly to swim, while golfers will find conditions perfect. As such, budget-minded travelers will find the best deals from January to March and will want to avoid May and June (prime honeymoon time). There is no particularly rainy season in Bermuda, though keep in mind that tropical storms and hurricanes have been known to affect the region in late summer through fall -- but even then the chances are extremely minimal.
Everything from food to lodging is on the expensive side, so consider eschewing the popular resorts in favor of the many privately owned cottages and villas scattered about the island. Many come with kitchens and are within walking distance of beaches, bars, restaurants and grocery stores (so you can eat in if you'd like). Buy a bus pass and scoot around like a local. Skip some of the higher-priced attractions and hike on the Bermuda Railway Trail, which slices through woods and curves along waterways. And check out free events, like the wholly entertaining Dunking of the Wench in St. George.
