Bermuda is Britain's oldest colony and is a dream holiday and residential destination, with its pink, sandy beaches, clear turquoise seas and picturesque old colonial towns. It is an archipelago comprised of approximately 200 coral islands and islets located 650 miles (1,045km) off the east coast of America in the Atlantic Ocean. The bulk of the country consists of the seven main islands linked to each other by causeways and bridges and stretches just 20 miles (32km) from tip to tail. The combination of shallow waters and coral reefs which caused many shipwrecks in the past, contributed to the 'Bermuda Triangle' legend, which spans from Bermuda to Florida and Puerto Rico. However, the reefs offer an ideal playground for swimming, snorkelling, and diving.
Most visitors to the islands are American citizens who fondly think of it as quintessentially English in character, whilst British visitors feel it has a strongly American flavour. In truth, Bermuda's distinct atmosphere is a blend of influences from both American and British traditions which have merged with local island culture to result in the uniqueness of Bermuda.
Bermuda has now become a centre of high finance as well as one of the world's most coveted holiday destinations. Generous tax advantages and satellite communications have attracted a steady stream of major corporations to set up offices on the island, thus helping the country to become one of the richest, per capita countries, in the world.
