There’s plenty more to this tiny, horseshoe-shaped string of islands than preppy shorts and aviation mysteries. Lonely in the mid-Atlantic, Bermuda is an intriguing medley of British, American and Caribbean influences, right down to the locals’ accents. Quaint place names that conjure up Ye Olde England and red telephone boxes meet pink sand beaches, rum cocktails and sherbet-colored cottages. The first settlers arrived by chance in 1609, when a ship bound for Virginia ran into a storm; the episode apparently inspired Shakespeare’s The Tempest. Today, Bermuda’s naval heritage is writ large on its landscape, salt air whipping through historic fortresses and dockyards.
