Saint George, Bermuda
Situated on the western edge of the Sargasso Sea, an ocean area with high salinity, warm temperature and few currents, Bermuda enjoys a very comfortable sub-tropical climate. Saint George town, founded in 1612, was named after the England’s patron saint. Visit Saint David's Lighthouse, as well as the pristine landscape of Cooper’s Island Nature Reserve and the beaches of Castle Harbor to see a variety of lizards, giant land hermit crabs and the endemic Bermuda cedar trees. Humpback whales, dolphins and porpoises as well as over 360 bird species have also been recorded there. Bermuda’s beaches and crystal-clear waters over colorful coral reefs are some of the most exquisite in the world. The jewels in Bermuda’s crown are eleven wonderfully preserved military fortifications in St. George, awarded UNESCO World Heritage Site status. Historic Water Street is a collection of museums, stylish shops, restaurants and artists' galleries. The Bermuda National Trust Museum highlights Bermuda’s role in the American Civil War. St Peter’s Church and historic cemetery is the oldest Anglican Church in continuous use outside Britain. It was granted the Royal title 'Their Majesties Chappell' by Queen Elizabeth II, when she visited here in 2012.
