  • It enjoys a subtropical climate despite its location.  However it does find itself in a hurricane belt and can be prone to serious weather.
  • In the 16th century Bermuda became known as the Isle of Devils.  This is accredited to a combination of stormy weather, hazardous reefs and the raucous noise of the local Cahow birds which could be heard offshore.  Sailors misinterpreted these noises as spirits! 
  • One cannot rent a car in Bermuda!  Tourists can get around on foot, by taxi, ferry, bus or scooter!
  • May 24th is Bermuda Day!  Traditionally the first day of the year Bermudians go swimming in the sea!  It is also the start of the Bermuda Fitted Dinghy racing.
  • Bermuda has more golf courses per square mile than anywhere in the world
  • Rainfall generates the only fresh water source in Bermuda.  Houses are fitted with water tanks and the shape of the roof allows the water to run into them
