Bermuda and the Bahamas Introduction
Bermuda is perceived as a tropical paradise, but dubbing it such would do injustice to the pastel cottages, quaint shops, and manicured gardens that are the markers of a more staid, suburban way of life. Still, sun, sea and sand are the mitigating factors that prompt half-a-million-plus annual visitors. This Atlantic haven is one of the cleanliest places in the world, for it is without slums, crime and unemployment. It boasts a mild climate, pink beaches, turquoise waters, coral reefs, 17th-century architecture and splendid golf courses.
The Bahamas is a unique country, for it is comprised of 700 islands - and 75% of the land mass lies underwater. The sea is this country's prevailing feature, and local painters, divers, boat builders, fisherman and chefs all draw inspiration from it. Though the Bahamas is only an hour's flight from Florida, it seems much more secluded, and there are times when you may discover that the only set of footprints gracing the shore belong to you. You can unwind on a luminous beach, witness marching pink flamingos, visit ancient forts and explore underwater caves.
Mapping your way through the streets of Bermuda and the Bahamas is quite possible. Larger cities might require the use of a guide, but most towns are relatively small and a day's walk enables you to take in all the chief attractions. Locals are friendly and they are more than willing to point you in the right direction.
