Hear "Bermuda is Another World"
One of the many spectacular Bermuda beaches and scenes.
Location: W064 44, N3219. Time zone: Atlantic time, one hour ahead of the USA and Canada's EST and four hours behind GMT.
Bermuda is 21 square mile (56 kilometers) in total land area, a cluster of small islands (6 main islands and 120 others) in the north west Atlantic Ocean. The main islands are connected by bridges. One the nine smallest places in the world in total land area, compared to the USA's 9.629 million square kilometers. With nine parishes (counties or districts), each 2.3055 square miles (3.68 square kilometers. Has about 65,000 residents and 550,000 visitors yearly, mostly from cruise ships. It is located about 600 miles due east of the nearest mainland, the USA's North Carolina. Not in the Caribbean but 900 miles north of it, with no regular airline or shipping services between the Caribbean and Bermuda, only with the USA, Canada and Britain. Britain's oldest and smallest but most affluent British Overseas Territory, self-governing, with its own laws including those on citizenship, commerce, customs duties, employment, finance, health, insurance, investments, hospitalization, immigration, taxation, trade, welfare, etc. Not part of the European Community, unlike Britain. Despite its small size it is an important offshore business jurisdiction, registered corporate home of many multinational business entities, particularly for insurance and reinsurance companies. The World Bank - see http://data.worldbank.org/country/bermuda - rates it as one of the top four jurisdictions in the world in Gross National Income per capita. However, the cost of living is very high.
