The stunning British island in the North Atlantic Ocean provides seemingly endless stretches of perfect paradise beaches. Its location has long linked Bermuda with maritime history – the Royal navy has a significant dockyard here and the National Museum features many nautical artefacts. But it also sees a cultural blending due to its proximity to the USA and has harnessed its natural assets to develop a world-class tourism industry. As such, the hotels and resorts in Bermuda are of a very high standard, and while the island is but 21 square miles in size, it has many excellent options for the luxury traveller.
