A recent article in The Independent, quoting Numbeo and MoveHub, reported that Bermuda is far and away the most expensive place in the world to live, with a score of 144.88 on their cost of living comparison score. This is well ahead of Switzerland at 131.39, Iceland at 123.96 and Norway at 113.07. For comparison, Japan scored 86.58 and India scored 26.88.

The score is based on the cost of living in New York City, which has a score of exactly 100.00. That means Bermuda is roughly 44% more expensive to live in than the most expensive city in the U.S.

I'm sure that this is no surprise to anyone living there.

I would have expected Grand Cayman to make the list.

life on the island it is expensive for sure.
quality of accommodation you get for this money is very poor and level of service you get from local estate agents is appalling.
once employers will stop paying for accommodation of employees recruited from abroad prices will crash significantly. as no one in their right mind will want to pay that much
