Bermuda Fun Facts ~ Where is Bermuda?
Upon approach to this beautiful charming island, your plane is flying over Bermuda’s colorful barrier reef and white rooftops. You will see the ocean surrounding the island is almost gemlike, but then you will be asking yourself how it is so high north and yet so tropical. Bermuda is a 21 square mile island located on the North Atlantic and off the east coast of North America. It is actually a string of 138 islands and tiny islets, out of which some 20 are inhabited and seven are joined by bridges and causeways to the main island. The Bermuda Longtail, so beautiful, chooses this place to return every year to nest.
Bermuda’s deep history of Pirating!
Bermuda’s pirating history deserves much more than a simple paragraph on a numbered list. It is enthralling and exciting to read. During the 1700s, the island did not have much natural resources to reap. What they did have though, is what the ocean provided, along with the sturdy cedar trees that grew all over the island. Therefore, it made sense then, that they turned to shipbuilding and privateering – or in other words, piracy.
The Isle of Devils, as it was called, was a strategic location when ships would sail between England, Spain, and France, and the Caribbean and the New World, (North America). Bermuda was famous for not only capturing merchant ships that made the mistake of sailing into the wrong local waters, but they also
plundered all the way from Boston to the Turks Islands and Bahamas. Privateering died out in the early 1800s, and as fearless as Bermudians were in those days, Bermudians today are some of the friendliest people you will meet.
You are able to snorkel up to seven miles offshore
In an area called Eastern Blue Cut, you are able to snorkel over a coral reef ecosystem that rises from 35 feet off the sandy bottom up to 3 feet under the surface. If you are brave enough to head over towards the ledge, where the coral reef sharply drops off and you start to enter the Atlantic Ocean, you are able
to easily see straight down 100 ft on clear days. You may see a school of large black groupers or an eagle ray halfway down swimming next to the ledge.
Bermuda’s coral reef has mostly, if not all, arrived from the Caribbean, Bahamas, and Florida through the Gulf Stream. The same Gulf Stream that carries the warm current that has created this tropical oasis in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean.
Goslings Black Seal Rum’s deep history with Bermuda
The Goslings brothers, James and Ambrose came to Bermuda in 1806 with £10,000 in wine, spirits, and products brought over from England with them. They were heading for America, but as it happened to many other ships at that time, they ended up in Bermuda and did not leave. In 1860, the sons of Ambrose had the first oak barrels of black rum shipped in from England. After testing and perfecting a new blend of black rum at that time, the family has continually been selling their rum to Bermudians and
rum drinkers world-wide. It is the reason for the Dark & Stormy, a national drink, a must try!
Bermuda’s white rooftops are used to collect drinking water
Bermuda has few fresh water wells and no natural rivers. This means that early Bermudian settlers had to be creative with collecting their drinking water. The famous white rooftops have gutters that catch the water and direct it into a caged off drain to prevent most debris from falling in. The water fills up an
underground tank that every house has, and after passing through a filtration system, it is safe to drink. If you happen to run low on water in your tank, you need to call the water truck and have them deliver a truckload of water to your house.
Places of Worship
There are more churches, across many denominations, on Bermuda per capita, one of the highest in the world. Bermuda’s Churches are beautiful in architecture, full of culture and history dating back to the oldest Anglican church outside of the British Isles and the oldest Protestant church in continuous use! St Peter’s dates back to the early 1600’s. It is now historically part of UNESCO World Heritage site.
