The pretty waterfront capital of Hamilton has an effortless elegance that epitomises the gracious mood of Bermuda itself. Britain's oldest colony, formed by seven Gulf Stream-warmed Atlantic islands linked by bridge and causeway, forms a picture-book setting of pink sand beaches, pastel-coloured colonial-style houses, sparkling inlets and waterways - and a maximum speed of 20 mph.
Less than half of Bermuda's nearly 150 tiny islands are actually big enough to build a house on. The archipelago's seven largest islands are connected by bridges or causeways, and the subsequent body of land is divided into nine parishes, each with its own personality and attractions. St. George's Parish anchors the East End and Sandy's Parish the West End, and the capital city of Hamilton sits in between.
Just offshore and beneath the water's surface is a fantasy like seascape made up of the world's northernmost coral reefs. The coral's brilliant colors and exotic shapes attract scores of snorkelers, scuba divers, and glass-bottom boats.
