What do I need to know before moving to Spanish Point?

When we asked people what advice they would give someone preparing to move to Spanish Point, they said:

"Spanish Point is a beautiful and serene place to live, with stunning views of the ocean and a relaxed, laid-back lifestyle. Before moving to Spanish Point, it's important to understand that the cost of living in Bermuda is quite high. Everything from housing to groceries tends to be more expensive than in many other countries, due to the fact that most goods are imported. The official language is English, so communication should not be a problem for English-speaking expats. However, understanding the local accent and colloquialisms may take some time. Bermuda has a subtropical climate, so it's warm and humid for most of the year. However, it can get quite cool in the winter months, and the island is prone to hurricanes between June and November. Public transportation in Bermuda is reliable and efficient, with a network of buses and ferries that connect all parts of the island. However, owning a car can be expensive and is subject to certain restrictions. Bermuda has a high standard of healthcare, but it can be expensive. It's important to have comprehensive health insurance that covers you in Bermuda. The island has a strong sense of community and is generally very safe. However, like anywhere, it's important to take basic safety precautions. Bermuda has strict customs regulations, particularly regarding the importation of certain goods. It's important to familiarize yourself with these rules before you move. The work culture in Bermuda is quite formal, with a strong emphasis on professionalism and punctuality. It's also worth noting that there are restrictions on foreign nationals working in Bermuda, so it's important to secure a job and work permit before you move. Finally, Bermuda is a British Overseas Territory, so it's important to familiarize yourself with the local laws and customs, which may be different from what you're used to," wrote one member in Spanish Point.
