10 Things you probably didn’t know about Bermuda but should

Myths and rumor mills have a way of getting to the best of us. Growing up, I used to hear that ships never cross the Bermuda triangle. There was a deep hole that sucked even planes from the sky. This sort of made me want to visit Bermuda. Now that I know better, I would like to share some of the things in Bermuda that you should know before heading there.

  1. Bermuda Triangle, off the coast of Bermuda, is also referred to as the Devil's Sea.
  2. Did you know that Bermuda is Britain's oldest colony and that your typical breakfast will be codfish and potatoes?
  3. In terms of pa capita, Bermuda has the most golf courses in the world. On an area of 20.75 square miles, you will find seven 18-hole golf courses and two 9-hole golf courses.
  4. Bermuda is made up of 181 coral islands.
  5. The island country is also unofficially referred to as the onion.
  6. Bermuda gets its name from its founder - Juan de Bermudez.
  7. Founded in 1790, Hamilton is the capital of Bermuda. The capital is home to 969 people. This means that it is one of the smallest capital cities in the world.
  8. St. George is the largest city in Bermuda. It has a total population of 1802 people and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
  9. Queen Elizabeth II is the head of state of Bermuda and its official language is English.
  10. Literacy level in Bermuda is 98%.

Visit Bermuda and get a chance to dispel the myths surrounding the island and the sea around it.
