BERMUDA

Bermuda is home to pink sand beaches, crystal clear turquoise water, countless cliffs perfect for jumping, and over 300 ship wrecks!. This underwater diving paradise allows divers to explore a US slave ship and French warship from the 1830s and a Civil War ships from the 1860s. Not a diver? You can check out great exhibits about the wrecks and Bermuda's fascinating history at one of several museums.

About 20 square miles, Bermuda is the perfect bike destination (albeit very hilly). Most locals get around by motorbike, which they simply refer to as a "bike" ("moped" in much of the US). Commuting by bicycle or motorbike is the best way to zip around and easily stop and visit dozens of beaches, swimming holes, hidden coves, museums and cultural destinations around the island.

Top tourist sites include Horseshoe Bay, consistently voted one of the world's top beaches and the Royal Naval Academy, a museum complex built in an old naval base. Both sites are well worth visiting but Bermuda is best explored with a sense of adventure and curiosity.
