About Bermuda


A small island with a powerful fashion statement (think Bermuda shorts), shrouded in eerie legends and floating in the crystal clear waters of the Sargasso Sea, Bermuda is as unique as it is fascinating.

The country is a string of 138 small islands vigilantly protected by coral reefs, making it one of the best diving spots in the world. Famous for their rare pink sand beaches: Elbow Beach and Horseshoe Bay, Bermuda is a popular travel destination with a lot to explore. When travelling to Bermuda, consider visiting Crystal Cave, Church Bay and Blue Hole Park among other natural attractions.

The country is an independently governed territory of the British Empire covering a total area of just 53.2 km2, and is inhabited by 61,352 people. Bermuda is a multicultural and multiethnic environment with English being the official language. The country has a high-cost economy and benefits from one of the highest per capita incomes in the world. Tourism covers about 30% of the GDP, and financial services are another significant sector, while industry and agriculture are insignificant due to the lack of suitable land.

Bermuda has one city and capital (Hamilton), one town and the old capital (St. George) and two villages (Flatts Village and Somerset Village). One of the other things that set Bermuda apart is that no visa is required to enter the country — but note that you will need to present a valid travel document and a return ticket.

Despite Bermuda’s small territory, the country is quite popular with expats due to its highly developed economy, stunning beaches, and pleasant tropical climate. With that said, living in Bermuda is expensive, and having a stable above average income is necessary for a comfortable life on the island.
