The restaurant Coconuts at The Reefs Resort and Club, Southampton.Set between steep cliffs on a private pink sand beach, Coconuts is one of the few restaurants in Bermuda to offer beach-side dining. This is an amazing location for romantic dining in Bermuda, where diners can enjoy a sunset dinner on the water’s edge, caressed by gentle breezes under the soft light of a tiki torch. There is a special sunset package available which provides a six-course dinner and a glass of champagne. This is a highly popular option, so one should definitely book ahead of visiting. Indoor seating is also available, and provides vivid beach views from the comfort of the cedar-panelled dining room.
Coconut’s offers delectable Caribbean-inspired cuisine, and the use of freshly caught seafood is of course extremely popular. There is also a wide range of meat and vegetarian dishes available, and the menu changes regularly.
