Think Bermuda and images of tidy pastel cottages, pink-sand beaches, and quintessential British traditions like cricket matches and afternoon tea spring to mind. Here, challenging golf courses, 75 miles of pristine coastline, an incredible coral reef, underground caverns, nature reserves and historic Hamilton invite endless exploration.
And what's more - this island paradise in the Atlantic is closer than you think - a mere two-hour flight from many east coast airports.
