Blue seas, pink-tinged sands and a balmy climate are what await tourists stepping off cheap flights to Bermuda. Add to that more golf courses per square kilometre than anywhere else in the world, historical parishes, fantastic diving and friendly people and Bermuda is heaven on earth.
The 33-square-km island in the North Atlantic is composed of about 180 islands, connected by bridges and divided into nine parishes. It has a very British way of doing things. It is, after all, a British overseas territory, albeit one with a high degree of self-rule. Culturally, Bermuda is an exciting mix of colonial history and African heritage. The business end of Bermuda may be British, but its music and dance have African influences.
The history of this island can be enjoyed at leisure. The Town of St. George is the oldest English-speaking colonial town still in existence and former capital. A World Heritage site, it is famous for its town square and harbour and very British street names – Petticoat Alley or Old Maid’s Lane. Hamilton is capital now, home to the government, courts and several international companies.

Officially, hurricane season runs from June 1 to November 30, but Bermuda tends to escape and the U.S. takes the hit. This is because of Bermuda’s northerly latitude and the Atlantic waters that flow around its shores.
