Since the days of Mark Twain, Bermuda has attracted travelers seeking a luxurious retreat with warm summers and temperate winters, perfect for a round of golf or a game of tennis. Located far off the North Carolina coast, the island has long been a favorite getaway with honeymooners, golf buffs (boasting more golf courses per square mile that any other country in the world), and travelers looking for a safe, upscale island destination free from beach vendors.

Today, the island is fast becoming a favorite with families as well. Parents and kids alike will find a full range of activities both on and off the beach.

Although technically not part of the Caribbean, Bermuda has all the sun, sand, and surf of its southern neighbors. Located 650 miles off the coast of Cape Hatteras, North Carolina, Bermuda ranks as one of the most elegant of the island destinations. It combines a slightly formal British atmosphere and its country’s position as one of the world’s richest countries with the island’s semi-tropical climate to create a setting where palm-lined roads connect Easter egg-colored houses.

With weather that’s often described as only two seasons — spring (69 degree average in January) and summer (85 degree average in July)— Bermuda is a family’s delight.

Although many consider Bermuda to be one island, the country is actually formed by about 180 small islands. Seven of these islands are connected by causeways and bridges, and this forms the landmass referred to as “Bermuda.”

The broken shoreline means a plenitude of beaches, most found on the south side from Southampton to Tucker’s Town. Most hotels are not located directly on the beach, but one is never far away: Bermuda is, at its thickest point, only one and a half miles wide.
