Bermuda

Bermuda is located in a stretch of the Atlantic Ocean 1046 km/650 miles east of North Carolina, and has a population of 65,000 people. Bermuda is an overseas territory of the UK. Discovered in 1503, it is the oldest British colony, and the Town of St. George, a World Heritage site, is the oldest English-speaking colonial town still in existence.

With 75 miles of coastline, you’ll never be more than ½ mile from the ocean. While often referred to as “the island,” Bermuda is composed of 180 islands, most of which are uninhabited. The eight largest islands are linked by bridges and divided into nine parishes. All of the islands together make a total 21 square miles or 54 km. Bermuda is home to some of the world’s rare pink sand beaches.

Since the 1600s, island heritage contains a mix of African, British, Caribbean and Native American roots. The official language is English, but many residents also speak Portuguese.
