About Bermuda


Located only 650 miles off the coast of North Carolina, Bermuda is a short plane trip away from many cities on the US east coast. A British Overseas Territory, Bermuda has one airport, L.F. Wade International Airport, which is a mere seven miles from Hamilton, the capital city of Bermuda.
Although usually referred to in the singular, Bermuda consists of 181 islands, islets and rocks, with a total area of about 27 square miles. The largest island, Main Island, is sometimes referred to as Bermuda. Made up of nine parishes, Bermuda is a sub-tropical archipelago warmed by the Gulf Stream.

The population

Bermudians are known and loved for their warmth, friendliness and humor. The total population of the island is nearly 64,000. Many locals are descendants from slaves, both African and American Indians, originally imported by British settlers in the 17th and 18th Centuries. In the 20th Century, there was a wave of immigration from other islands in the Caribbean and the West Indies. About 35 percent of Bermudians trace their roots back to Britain, Canada, the US and Portugal.
