Combine the fine pink sand of Bermuda’s beaches with its dramatic cliff formations, coconut palms, and gently rolling dunes that slope toward the shimmering blues of the Atlantic and you have quite a setting for meetings and incentives.

The island is as British as its motherland—if not more so. Pubs, red telephone boxes, and cricket matches are all part of the culture. Horse-drawn carriages share the streets with zippy mopeds and men wear shirts and ties with Bermuda shorts and “long hose.”

Located 650 miles off the coast of Cape Hatteras, N.C., Bermuda is one of the most elegant island destinations in the world. Unlike the Caribbean islands, you will not find small areas of beauty surrounded by poverty. The island has one of the highest standards of living in the world, and Bermudians strive to maintain it. Pastel cottages dot the island painted in Wedgwood blue, pale apricot, and lime. One of Bermuda’s greatest assets is its citizens, who go out of their way to make visitors feel welcome.
