Located 650 miles off the coast of North Carolina, Bermuda is famous for its pink-sand beaches and cerulean waters. Although thought of as a singular island, the tiny British territory is actually a collection of 138 islands, all of which together occupy less than 21 square miles.
A British territory since the 1600s, Bermuda is now an offshore financial services and international business center with one of the highest GDPs and the highest per capita income in the world. Less than two hours by plane from the United States' East Coast and warmed by the Gulf Stream, it's also a popular vacation destination and second-home site for the wealthy. Perhaps as a result, Bermuda boasts more golf courses per square mile than any other destination in the world.
