What do I need to know about living in Hamilton?

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

"Before retiring in Hamilton, expats should be aware of the cost of living, which is higher than in many other countries. They should also be aware of the climate, which is subtropical and humid, with temperatures ranging from the mid-60s to the mid-80s Fahrenheit. Additionally, expats should research the local culture and customs, as well as the availability of healthcare and other services. Finally, expats should be aware of the visa requirements for living in Bermuda, which may require a work permit or other documentation," wrote one member in Hamilton.

"Don't, unless you have a very good remuneration package, with a housing allowance of at least $2500. You will not be able to rent ANYTHING for less than that, and a decent appartment will cost $5000 up. Everything is VERY expensive, especially food. The island is VERY small, and you will get "island fever" and need to leave periodically. This is also quite expensive as there are no cheap flights off the island. Go and have a look first, and be prepared for culture shock," remarked one expat who made the move to Hamilton.
