The tiny island of Bermuda floats in the Sargasso Sea, right off the coast of the Carolinas. The island is known for its colonial towns lined with pastel-colored houses, hidden coves covered in pink sand, and pleasant year-round weather perfect for golfing, swimming, or sun-bathing. Bermuda is also influenced by a mixture of British, West Indian, and Portuguese cultures, which is evident in the island's eclectic cuisine.
