Bermuda is a British overseas territory located in the North Atlantic Ocean. It consists of 138 islands that form a fishhook-shaped landmass, stretching some 22 miles in length and about a mile across. Bridges and causeways connect the eight largest islands.
Famed for Bermuda shorts, the original Bermuda onion, and of course the Bermuda Triangle, the island's tourism has grown significantly over the last 50 years.
Bermuda's pink sand beaches, crystal-clear waters, offshore reefs and the Royal Naval Dockyard are major attractions. Of note: it is not possible to rent a car on the island, so in addition to walking the pleasant streets, many travelers choose to rent a bicycle or scooter.

The Royal Naval Dockyard, Bermuda, was the principal base of the British Royal Navy in the Western Atlantic between American independence and the mid 20th century. It is a major tourist attraction, and this is one of the original buildings.
At the National Museum of Bermuda inside the Royal Naval Dockyard, one can explore over 500 years of local history and culture, displayed in military buildings and in the nicely restored Commissioner's House. Bastions, cannons, shipwreck artifacts, local watercraft, maritime art, spectacular sea views and dolphin encounters are all found here.
Did you know that just off the coast of Bermuda, you'll find some of the world's best saltwater sport fishing?

From beginners to experts, the island offers charter boats that make daily full or half-day trips to the banks where fisherman of all skill levels can indulge in the challenge of trying to hook a world-class fish.
