Bermuda is only two hours by plane from the East Coast, but it feels worlds away. Its 200-square mile coral reef plateau lends the island’s beaches their pinkish hues and provides snorkelers, scuba divers, and wreck-divers endless opportunities to explore. Onshore, the tiny island—less than 22 square miles—is home to more golf courses per square mile than anywhere else in the world. From croquet and yachting to beachside music and culinary festivals, this oldest of British colonies mixes traditional buttoned-down style with laid-back island living.
