Bermuda at a Glance

Rose colored beaches, beautiful dive sites and pleasant summer temperatures make Bermuda an attractive island destination for tourists. 

Due to its more northerly position, Bermuda has chilly winters and the majority of tourists prefer to come during the warm summer months. Pink, crescent shaped beaches are covered with sun umbrellas and towels. Just off-shore, divers and snorkelers explore the fish filled reefs. Bermuda is an especially exciting place to scuba dive due to the number of sunken ships mired in the reefs. Hunt for pirate booty among the wreckage, or just underwater sight-see.

Bermuda is just as much fun on land as it is in the sea. Stroll the Old Town of St. George, which is Britain's oldest surviving settlement in the New World. If more history is what you need, check out the Bermuda Maritime Museum. Alternatively, hike through the jungle, or dance til dawn in the City of Hamilton. Bermuda has an adventure for everyone.
