Bermuda is a remote Caribbean island located closer to America than the Caribbean. It is a British Overseas Territory and was named after the first European to land on its shores, the Spanish sea captain Juan de Bermúdez. Historically, no indigenous people were known to have inhabited the island previous to this, unlike most Caribbean islands.
Bermuda is most commonly known for the Bermuda triangle and attracts significant attention from both geographers and conspiracy theorists. Like many other islands, tourism is an important source of income for the island. Tourists flock here from the US, Canada and Britain to escape the harsh winters every year. Bermuda is similar to the rest of the Caribbean in the way that it boasts spectacular beaches that attract its yearly visitors. The capital is Hamilton and the island itself is 20.6 sq. miles.
