Bermuda, the "Jewel of the Atlantic," lies less than two hours away from major airports on the United States' eastern seaboard. Incomparable weather, pink sand beaches, a breadth of historic sites and golf galore are all reasons why Condé Nast Traveler readers have voted Bermuda "Best island in the Caribbean/Atlantic" 16 times since 1994. Situated in an astoundingly beautiful stretch of the Atlantic Ocean, 650 miles east of North Carolina, the island nation boats 75 miles of dramatic coastline.
From shipwrecks and African drum beats to military bases and those famous shorts, the island's culture is a rich fusion of British colonial history and African heritage unlike anything else in the world. As Britain's oldest colony, its influence continues to dominate government, educational and legal institutions. One may spot a Bermudian judge walking through the capital of Hamilton in a powdered wig, see a bobby directing traffic or overhear a passionate conversation about a local cricket match. African influences, while subtler, can be found in dance and music, especially reggae, calypso and the rhythm of the Gombeys–magnificent dancing and drumming troupes that often take to the streets.
Whether one is planning a golf getaway, family vacation, girl's spa escape or Bermuda honeymoon, Rosewood Tucker's Point offers the island's finest beach resort destination.
