A quick tropical getaway for Americans along the Eastern seaboard, Bermuda is probably most famous for its stunning pink sand beaches, deep aquamarine seas and the forbidding and mysterious Bermuda Triangle!
Along with its stunning natural beauty, what many visitors are surprised to find is rich cultural history as Bermuda is home to some of the oldest churches, military forts and state houses in
the Western hemisphere, built by early 16th century British settlers.
Today, most visitors and cruise travelers make Paget Parish their jumping-off point. Situated close to the major hub and capital city of Hamilton, it offers shopping, restaurants and nightlife, along with popular Elbow Beach and the spectacular Bermuda botanical gardens located just nearby.
During tourist season, visitors arrive daily by cruise ship at Hamilton to take in such
as Horseshoe Beach (middle) and the Bermuda Botanical Garden (right).
Driving by car around Bermuda is never a problem, since rental cars are all but illegal in this compact country, but taxis are numerous and rental scooters or mopeds are widely available for sightseeing on your own.
Like many Caribbean nations, Bermuda is divided into parishes, or neighborhoods, offering their own distinctive attractions. Southampton Parish is by far the most luxurious featuring world-class resorts, golf courses, and famous beaches such as Horseshoe Beach and West Whale Bay.
