Bermuda is a self governing dependency of the United Kingdom.
The Bermudas are not in the Caribbean at all. The group of 150 small islands lie in the north Atlantic, east of North Carolina.
Bermuda was literally discovered by accident.
A Spanish navigator, Juan de Bermudez, was shipwrecked here in around 1503.
In 1609, Sir George Somers was on the way to Virginia, with a group of English colonists, when they were shipwrecked too.
It seems people should sail in the area with care.
Although about 20 of the Bermudas are inhabited, only six of them are of importance.
Of these Great Bermuda, or Main Island, is the largest at 14 miles in length. The other islands are: Somerset; Ireland; St George's; St Davids; and Boaz.
Situated some 600 miles off the Eastern seaboard of the United States, Bermuda is a luxurious island destination. Settled by the British, Bermuda consists of over 170 islands.
While the majority of visitors come for the beaches, Bermuda has a fair share of sights to keep one occupied. The Royal Naval Dockyard in particular, is an attraction with significant historical importance dating back to the early American and British feuds.
Although Bermuda is not as cheap as some of its Caribbean counterparts (actually it's quite expensive) Bermuda is a great choice for those looking for something a bit different.
Bermuda is fairly expensive, but bargains can be had during the off season (November to March).

The capital of the British dependency of Bermuda, is situated on Bermuda Island's Hamilton Harbour, at the east end of the Great Sound.

The harbour front has many coloured houses, and is quite an attraction for tourists.

Bermuda beaches come in all shapes and shades of sand and are excellent for swimming, snorkeling, sunbathing and relaxing.
Most famous are the south shore beaches, with vast stretches of pink-tinged sand, interspersed with tucked away coves. The white sand contains pink flecks - remains of the tiny foraminifera organism that grows beneath the reef offshore.
Travelling by ferry in Bermuda is an excellent way to get around. The new fast ferries are clean, spacious, air-conditioned and efficient. The main ferry terminal is located at Albuoy's Point in Hamilton.
