The name Bermuda has for many decades been linked to its more famous namesake, the Bermuda Triangle, which gave rise to memorable stories and movies surrounding its mysterious coastlines. In spite of being a country that never runs out of warm sunshine and cerulean blue seas, it has attracted travelers across the continent only recently. A British colony since the 1600s, Bermuda’s pink beaches splashed across 133 islands just off the North Atlantic Ocean has given rise to a tourism industry that has transformed Bermuda into one of the most affluent economies in the world.
The populous territory of the United Kingdom, villages in this country are named after English villages, such as Flatts, where beach hotels are located on top of hillsides; Hamilton, a place for sport racing and other adventures, as well as Somerset and Devonshire. It has two incorporated municipalities within its capital, the City of Hamilton and the Town of St. George, where one can find endless rows of colonial houses once inhabited by Portuguese settlers.
Translucent cerulean waters decked in pink sands along the stretch of Somerset Long Bay transports vacationers to another paradise. The quaint historic attraction of Old State House gives tourists a semblance of its monarchy, amidst the ruin of old stone buildings of the Old Rectory and the Bermuda National Trust Museum. The Royal Naval Dockyard itself is a historic zone dubbed the “Gibraltar of the West”.
First-time travelers are advised to try the fish soup, a Bermuda specialty that comes with its own rum and spicy pepper sherry to get the tomato based concoction right to your liking. As William E. Geist once said of the experience, “they used to have fish on the menu that was smoked, grilled and peppered; they did everything to the fish, but pistol-whip it and dress it in Bermuda shorts.”
