Short trip this August: Bermuda or USVI? Why, and where to stay/what to do?

I'd like to plan a trip for the girl I'm seeing and myself to go somewhere warm with beautiful beaches in early August.
We've narrowed the possibilities down to Bermuda or the US Virgin Islands. Bermuda, because it's close -- we're flying from Pittsburgh -- we can find cheap flights, and I've always wanted to see it. USVI because she's part Danish and there's lots of Danish history and influence there. I am aware that August is hurricane season in the Caribbean so that might be a factor too.
We're looking for a nice, low key, place to stay for 3 or 4 nights. Not super interested in all-inclusive packages. Definitely interested in being close to other activities (hiking/biking/poking around towns) besides sitting idly on the beach -- but that's a big draw too.
Have you been to either of these places? Do you have any recommendations for places to stay? Where would you go?
