Bermuda is a financial and tourist powerhouse, steeped in history and proud of its roots. Situated in the Atlantic Ocean, Bermuda is at once strategic and idyllic. A fascinating history of trade, privateering and defence, coupled with the boom in tourism to its pink sandy beaches and innovative financial services, all serving to make these islands a gem between Britain, North America and the Caribbean.
