Bermuda Vacations

Bermuda Island, Britain’s oldest colony and spiritual home of the ubiquitous knee-length Bermuda shorts first introduced by the British military around the beginning of the 20th century , lie about 1,050-650 miles east of Cape Hatteras, North Carolina, in the Atlantic Ocean. Warmed by the Gulf Stream and protected by the world’s most northerly coral reefs, seven of the 150 islands are connected by bridges and causeways to form Bermuda, which has three cruise-ship docks: Hamilton the capital, St George and the Royal Naval Dockyard in the West End. This beautiful island was discovered by Spanish explores Juan Bermudez in 1503, but settled only in the early 17th century by the British, after Sir George’s Somers was shipwrecked off St George’s Island in 1609. Today the island is a popular summer vacation destination, delightfully British, with pubs, restaurants, shopping centers and full of activities throughout the summer. Start planning your vacation to this beautiful island and discover it all yourself.
