Where Is Bermuda?
The Bermuda Triangle, a strip of ocean stretching from the tip of Florida south to Puerto Rico and north-east to Bermuda, is how Bermuda is best known. The island is located just of the coast of North Carolina and it is less than 2 hours flying time from the east coast of the USA to the Bermuda Airport. It consists of approximately 180 islands and islets and enjoys sub-tropical weather. Our many coastlines are characterized by small bays with beaches of fine pale pink coral sand and surrounding vivid blue-green ocean waters. Inland is an abundance of subtropical plants and flowers, interspersed with quaint pastel cottages.
Bermuda is surrounded by a fantastic coral reef that harbors colorful fish and has ensnared scores of ships creating a permnent home for shipwrecks, making for memorable diving and snorkeling. The crystal-clear waters provide perfect conditions for kayaking and yachting. The offerings on land are splendid as well.
You can play a round at a world-class golf course, hike peaceful trails and sunbathe on glorious pink-sand beaches. Or stroll the crooked streets of the colonial settlement of the Town of St George, Britain's oldest surviving town in the New World, which is so well preserved it's been made a World Heritage site.
The weather in Bermuda is a balmy climate that's comfortable all year round with friendly people who readily strike up conversations with strangers. And there's plenty of distinctive local color as well, from a landscape of tidy pastel cottages to dapper businessmen dressed in Bermuda shorts.
