Bermuda is located off the east coast of the US and is only 90 minutes by air from New York. There are also regular direct flights from other major US cities, as well as Toronto, Canada and London, England.
The Island boasts semi-subtropical weather year round and is surrounded by pristine waters and pink sand beaches. An active outdoor community exists, where fishing and diving are among the top activities. As the oldest British Overseas Territory and with being in such close proximity to North America, Bermuda has a lively ex pat community, which makes it easy to integrate into the culture.
