About Bermuda

When you hear the word "tropical", you probably think of Bermuda. This stunning island (or rather, collection of islands) is one of the Carribean's true gems, with its dreamy pink sandy beaches and crystal-clear turquoise waters. And the architecture's not half bad, too - you'll find plenty of quaint coloured houses and stately mansions dotted around, perhaps a nod to its long history as a British territory.

Despite only measuring twenty miles by two miles, Bermuda is jam packed with natural beauty - think stunning caves and beautiful lagoons. There is a rich and highly unique local culture, a mix of British, Portuguese, Spanish, African and North American influences. This is evidenced in the island's fascinating museums and in the cuisine, which includes a mix of local specialities (such as shark hash and mussel pie) as well as Portuguese-style fish and tomatoes, and classic British sponge cakes.

Our pick of the best places to stay in Bermuda boast fantastic beachfront locations which are bound to impress.
