  1. I am visiting Bermuda March 26th to April 2nd. Is it warm enough to be in bathing suits on the beach? I was thinking this was Caribbean.

    • The air temperature at the end of March should reach about 70 F at midday. I’d personally feel warm enough in a bathing suit on the beach.

      The water temperature will be in the upper 60s. Bermudians consider this too cold to go in the sea. I don’t. It’s a personal thing.

  2. When do you think the water will get cold this year?

    • The ocean starts to cool down late October to mid-November. Look at the table above. You can see water temperature is reasonably consistent over the years. It is more predictable than other weather variables.
