Just two hours from the East Coast, this is a land of bountiful pleasures. A place of luxury, history, hospitality, tranquility, sunshine, good times, and a carefree lifestyle.
A small archipelago of 138 coral islands and islets, Bermuda was first settled in 1609 by English colonists sailing on The Seaventure. Artifacts from that historic ship, recovered in the 1950s and 1970s, are on display at the Bermuda Maritime Museum.
This vibrant and color-drenched island attracts vacationers to its famous pink-sand beaches and its "Ribbons of Green" that includes ecological reserves, rolling verdant hills, world-class golf courses, and classic Georgian homes and gardens.
The island also boasts clear waters, coral reefs, and shipwrecks that ensure great scuba diving and snorkeling. Landside, historic Fort St. Catherine is a must see. One of Bermuda's oldest buildings, it was constructed of wood in 1612 by the islands' first governor, Richard Moore.
The Royal Naval Dockyard was built by the British as the Gibraltar of the West, following the American Revolutionary War, and is today home to shops, restaurants, the Bermuda Maritime Museum, and Dolphin Quest.
Discovering paradise is easy when you make Bermuda your vacation destination.
