“Continued Rebound” for Bermuda Tourism 

By: Caribbean Journal Staff - August 22, 2023

Bermuda tourism is beginning to bounce back, according to newly-released data from the Bermuda Tourism Authority. 

The island reported 41,821 leisure air arrivals in the second quarter, representing an increase of 25.7 percent compared to the same period last year. 

Bermuda’s hotel occupancy rose by 12.1 percent in the same period, with hotel revenue per available room jumping by 26 percent.

Visitor expenditure totaled $113.4 million – a 20.6 percent increase compared to last year, while individual visitor spending saw a 6.1 percent decline. 

“The second quarter was certainly encouraging in terms of the continued rebound in visitors following Covid related travel restrictions during the past few years,” said Tracy Berkeley, CEO of the Bermuda Tourism Authority. “While we still have ground to make up and remain constrained by various challenges including diminished hotel capacity and air lift, the results from the first half of this year reflect the efforts of the BTA team, industry partners and the Bermuda community in building a meaningful and sustained recovery and future growth for our tourism industry.” 

Bermuda had some of the strictest travel health protocols in the wider Caribbean-Atlantic region during the pandemic, significantly delaying its tourism recovery compared to competing destinations.
