Discover The Jewel Of The Atlantic
It’s called the "Jewel of the Atlantic" and no wonder. A ring of turquoise water provides a dramatic setting for Bermuda’s pink sand beaches and limestone cliffs. Warmed by the sun and the Gulf Stream, the atmosphere is blissfully free of tropical heat.
Our people and culture offer a rich, diverse blend of influences from West Africa and West Indies slave ancestors, English colonialists, Irish rovers and Portuguese seafarers. It all started with a Spanish sea captain, Juan de Bermúdez, who discovered the island in 1505 and for whom the island is named.
Our people are warm and friendly, with an abiding respect for proper manners. This helps explain the island's namesake Bermuda shorts. A concession to warm weather, they are never sloppy and must, by law, be no shorter than six inches above the wearer's knee.
