Bermuda is perceived as a tropical paradise, but dubbing it such would do injustice to the pastel cottages, quaint shops, and manicured gardens that are the markers of a more staid, suburban way of life.
Still, sun, sea and sand are the mitigating factors that prompt half-a-million-plus annual visitors. This Atlantic haven is one of the cleanliest places in the world, for it is without slums, crime and unemployment.

The Bahamas is a unique country, for it is comprised of 700 islands - and 75% of the land mass lies underwater.

You can unwind on a luminous beach, witness marching pink flamingos, visit ancient forts and explore underwater caves.
