BERMUDA HOLIDAYS   >   CARIBBEAN 


Whitewashed stone cottages, proper gentlemen in jackets, ties and shorts, beautiful beaches, cricket matches and afternoon tea.

Bermuda is a independent Overseas Territory of the United Kingdom and contrary to common conception, not in the Caribbean. The western Atlantic Ocean, 580 nautical miles east of North Carolina, is where you will find Bermuda on the map!

Bermuda is an archipelago consisting of seven main islands and many smaller islands and islets lying about 1,050 kilometers (650 mi.) east of North Carolina. The main islands--with hilly terrain and subtropical climate--are clustered together and connected by bridges; they are considered to be a geographic unit and are referred to as the Island of Bermuda.

Parishes in Bermuda : Devonshire, Hamilton, Paget, Pembroke, Saint Georges, Sandys, Smiths, outhampton and Warwick

Cuisine  -  Bermudian Foods / Recipes

Bermudian food, like that of many of the Caribbean islands, is the product of the combined influences of England, Africa and native cultures.

  Margarita   -   Bermudian Menu
Bermuda has a few very typical dishes, the king of which is the Bermudan Fish Chowder, which of course I had to serve. Other types of seafood, such as conch, mussels, shark and other fish are also quite typical though I skipped them as I didn't want to serve a seafood-only menu.

History of Bermuda


  Bermuda's History   -   Wikipedia
Bermuda was discovered in 1503 by a Spanish explorer, Juan de Bermudez, who made no attempt to land because of the treacherous reef surrounding the uninhabited islands. Bermuda was first settled in 1609 by shipwrecked English colonists headed for Virginia. The group of colonists was led by Sir George Somers, and stranded on the islands for 10 months. Their reports aroused great interest about the islands in England...

Slaves from Africa were brought to Bermuda soon after the colony was established. The slave trade was outlawed in Bermuda in 1807, and all slaves were freed in 1834. Today, about 60% of Bermudians are of African descent...

The Story of Bermuda and Her People   -   William Sears Zuill
This small group of islands in the Western Atlantic was formed by volcanic eruption 100 million years ago, but it was uninhabited until the early 16th century. Its story only begins 400 years ago when the thankful survivors of the "Sea Venture" staggered ashore to form the basis of the first settlement. This book chronicles the lives of the Bermudian people throught the excitements of ships and salt, from privateers and blockade-running in the earlier days to the more sedate present-day occupations of one of the world's most attractive tourist and business centres. Of major importance has been the island's unique geographical position which has more than once made Bermuda a place of great strategic value.
