Bermuda, the Jewel of the Atlantic! With their incomparable weather, pink sand beaches, breadth of historic sites and warm, friendly people, it’s no wonder Condé Nast Traveler readers have voted Bermuda “Best Island in the Caribbean/Atlantic” 18 times since 1994.
Many people mistakenly believe Bermuda is part of the Caribbean. In fact, Bermuda rests hundreds of miles north of the Bahamas in an astoundingly beautiful stretch of the Atlantic, a mere 650 miles east of North Carolina. Flights from New York and other eastern US cities reach this beautiful island in less than two hours.
* All of Bermuda fits in a cozy 21 square miles
* It boasts 75 miles (120km) of dramatic coastline
* Bermuda may seem like one continuous landmass to visitors, but is actually made up of 181 islands, islets and rocks. Most of these are uninhabited, but eight of the larger ones are linked by bridges and one causeway that form the subtropical paradise visitors cannot resist
* Bermuda’s unique location in the Atlantic provides an extraordinarily pleasant climate that rarely sees extremes of either hot or cold.
* The Island’s pink beaches are actually a combination of crushed coral, calcium carbonate and the shells of tiny single-celled animals called Foraminifera
