A Little Slice of England in the Caribbean
Like many of the islands in the Caribbean, Bermuda was build during the height of British governance, however even centuries later, Bermuda truly does keep a very distinct British feel. From their famous Bermuda shorts to their pink sand beaches, Bermuda is a great place to enjoy a holiday.
Located in a unique spot away from the rest of the Caribbean and off the eastern seaboard of the US, it is still a British Territory and has a very small population of just about sixty thousand residents.
The island is serviced by the LF Wade International Airport, which is just a few miles from the Hamilton, the capital city of Bermuda.
Plenty of Museums
For such a small island, Bermuda is just about seven miles long by two miles wide, it has a number of excellent museums. The first and most popular would be the Bermuda Maritime Museum. Since the island has such a varied and interesting history, from being a part of the slave trade to naval heritage and history.
The other well visited museum on Bermuda would be the Bermuda Aquarium, Museum and Zoo. The large complex offers visitors the chance to wander through a number of different exhibits to learn about and interact with some of the native animal life such as sea life, wild birds and tortoises.
Not quite a museum, but still very interesting is the Bermuda Perfumery. This manufacturing center offers visitors guided tours of the the center where they can learn how the fragrances and perfumes are made.
Sample Local Cuisine
Keeping with the tradition of the British, there is always an opportunity for afternoon tea to be found. For a very swanky and traditional experience, head over to the Fairmont Hamilton Princess for their high tea each afternoon. One of the other big delicacies on the island is the famous fish chowder, visitors will be hard pressed not to find a restaurant or pub that serves it, the Black Horse Tavern being one of the best.
