Contrary to popular belief, Bermuda is not in the Caribbean, but is a group of islands North America, group of islands in the North Atlantic Ocean, east of South Carolina. It is less than 20 miles in length and no more than 1/2 a mile wide in most places.
It is famous for its so-called triangle, which according to legend causes ships and aeroplanes to disappear mysteriously. The more natural explanation is that it is surrounded by coral reefs, the actual cause of many shipwrecks in years gone by. This however, makes for excellent snorkelling and scuba diving.
Its main industries are tourism and offshore banking. It makes for a fantastic beach destination, with its unique 'pink' sand. It is also a dream for golfers, with 8 golf courses. It has over 220 days of sunshine a year, and it never snows!
There are several big luxury hotels on the island, or you can rent a condo or stay at a B&B. You can also cruise here - the cruise ships dock along the side of the street in Hamilton, the tiny capital city! There is plenty to do, from tennis, golf and watersports, to hiring a moped and exploring the winding roads, to swimming with dolphins.
