Bermuda Travel Information


Bermuda (known officially as "The Bermuda Islands" or "The Somers Isles") is an archipeligo of about 138 islands in the North Atlantic. The islands, which lie about 640 miles (1,30 kilometers) off the coast of North Carolina in the United States, are a British Overseas Territory.

The islands are small in area, covering a total of just 20.6 square miles (53.3 km2) but are fairly densely populated. As of 2006, the estimated population of the islands was 65,773, including a substantial number of non-Bermudians, particularly people from the UK, the US, and Canada. There are only two municipalities on the islands, Hamilton, which is the only city and is the capital and primarily financial center, and St. George's, which is the oldest permanent settlement on the islands and is known for its historic town.

The Bermudan economy is a successful developed economy, based around financial services (it is an important offshore business center) and tourism, with around 500,000 tourists, mostly from the US, visiting the islands each year.

The Bermudan currency is the Bermuda Dollar (BMD) which is pegged at a 1:1 ratio with the US Dollar. On the islands, both Bermudan and US currency are widely used, but banks will generally charge you if you wish to convert Bermudan Dollars to US Dollars.

    Product Description:
    This small mid-Atlantic island enjoys marvelous weather, the occasional hurricane, and a travel experience that is unsurpassed. This represents our fifth attempt to portray the island, with its narrow roads, picturesque towns, and secluded beaches. This is a doubled-sided map, enabling the island to be shown in excellent detail than any other map. Apart from roads, the map shows the route of the former railroad (now a cycling path), most of the hotels and guest houses, parks, schools, churches and, of course, historic sites and touristic attractions. Inset maps of Hamilton, the capital, and st. George, are included.
