The picturesque environment
With its idyllic coastline and surrounding turquoise waters, Bermuda draws widespread attention for its picture-postcard beaches alone. For many travellers to this island chain, the priority is placed on spending time seeking out the islands’ best beaches, sailing across its surrounding waters and diving beneath the surface for a close-up of its coral reefs and marine life. The archipelago consists of over 180 islands, all originating from an extinct and submerged volcanic mountain range, with the eight largest islands, including Main Island, clustered together and connected by bridges and causeways. These connected islands forming a fishhook-shaped landmass are fringed with a dramatic coastline of long sandy beaches, pink-sand coves and cliff formations.
